Sweden was a renegade during the coronavirus outbreak, not locking down its population. When its day-to-day death numbers were rising coranavirus commissars the world over screeched at Sweden’s criminal foolishness for not locking down. Now its day-to-day death numbers are falling precipitously even as its case numbers tick up, and its death rate per million population is no worse and is in some cases better than the rest of Europe, which brings up the question: why did the rest of Europe have to go into lockdown (and destroy the European economy)? From Robert at iceagenow.info:
Similar pattern in the United States! Number of deaths declining rapidly.
In case you weren’t aware of this, Sweden refused to go into a lockdown mode. Restaurants remained open, bars remained open, the entire country remained open, all because Swedish authorities decided to let the virus run its course. They expected the country to reach what is known as “herd immunity.” And they succeeded!
At first, coronavirus cases rose quite rapidly, as expected. But even as the number of new cases continued climbing, the number deaths began declining. I don’t know that the proper word is “plummeting,” but as you can see from the graph below, the decline is very pronounced.
“Over the past ten weeks, the number of daily reported COVID-19 cases in Sweden has more than doubled, yet the number of deaths has plummeted,” writes Tony Heller. “The vast majority of deaths in Sweden were the result of nursing homes getting infected.”
“Their strategy has been to get the low risk population exposed so that they can reach herd immunity, so more cases is to be expected.”
“The same pattern is occurring in the US,” says Tony. The number of daily deaths is declining markedly.
The point here is that the number of new cases is meaningless propaganda. Many of those new cases came as a result of more testing, and many more came from what I consider fraudulent reporting.
And, as reader Michael Jenkins correctly points out, “even the death rate reported is, in all likelihood, grossly exaggerated.”
Forget the number of “new cases.” What we need to keep our eyes on is the death rate.
