yeah ..I suspect that Sweden only had a lull in cases of COvid because of their summer. Low population densities spending their time outdoors (with 8 weeks of holiday break thrown in there) .... with the cooler weather heading their way and people moving indoors again, watch the number of dead by covid rise ... I reackon they'll get close to if not surpass last winters death toll.Sweden has recorded its highest daily caseload since June. A total of 752 new cases were recorded on Thursday, its highest daily rise since 30 June when the health agency registered just over 800 new cases.
That experiment has failed....
yup just look at Norway their neigbour , a country that locked down with about a quarter of infections and a 10th of deaths even taking population into account....yeah ..I suspect that Sweden only had a lull in cases of COvid because of their summer.

And they are getting into the colder months. Recent news says that the virus is happy in cooler temps, and can last up to 28 days on surfaces we may touch.New cases of coronavirus in the US hit a two-month high on Friday with over 58,000 new infections reported and hospitalisations in the Midwest at record levels for a fifth day in a row, according to a Reuters analysis.
