Sweden-Good or bad approach to CV19?
There is a huge debate about Sweden’s approach to Covid-19. The policy is led by Public Health officials and not politicians — therefore, political calculations are not driving policy. This approach has led to some restrictions on the population — gatherings over 50 are not allowed and senior schools have been closed. In general, Sweden’s lockdown is a very much lighter touch than anywhere else in the world — see figure 1.
