There are so many unknowns in controversy over the right approach to safety with the coronavirus that we paradoxically see those working in essential industries demanding time at home, and many others who can not work demonstrating to go back …sometimes without masks. One feels for both sides, who have good intent, I believe.
As many know, Sweden has followed a more relaxed approach to Covid, avoiding lockdown. In contrast to Norway, its mortality rate is 10 times higher, and (less comparable give geographical and population distribution), a 3 to 2 ratio to that of the US. Its results may illustrate what countries can expect as they open up. Sweden’s jobs did not suffer as much. I do not think there is an ideal, happy medium, but perhaps we can learn from studying their experience.
Also, I do not know much about Sweden, personally. Can anyone else specifically contribute to the discussion from their knowledge of Sweden? Thanks.
