Conservative media push Sweden’s coronavirus response even as evidence suggests that it isn’t working | Media Matters for America

There is little evidence showing that Sweden’s approach is effective, and in fact, indicators suggest that it’s likely backfiring. Sweden has seemingly embraced the idea of “herd immunity,” As a result, Sweden’s fatality rate from coronavirus is significantly higher than those of the neighbouring countries and of the United States, at 7.68% as of April 8 compared to 1.46% in Norway, 3.85% in Denmark, and 3.21% in the U.S.

Conservatives want that approach here. History has shown that pandemics come in ever-increasing waves. So if your prepared to stand up and say that those that die are expendable and shrug for the sake of the “Economy” be prepared what you wish for as social sacrifice is never equal.
