After months of condemnation for no lockdown, Sweden’s COVID deaths drop to near-zero

Unlike many nations, Sweden never shut down its schools or economy and did not restrict individual freedoms to nearly the degree seen in the United States and much of Europe.

 

By Calvin Freiburger,

As heated debate continues over the emergency measures taken around the world to limit the spread of COVID-19, new data suggest Sweden’s oft-derided approach of not locking down may have paid off in the long run.

The country of 10 million people has seen a total of 82,972 infections and 5,766 deaths. Unlike many nations, it never shut down its schools or economy and did not restrict individual freedoms to nearly the degree seen in the United States and much of Europe.

Sweden’s leaders faced a steady drumbeat of international condemnation as deaths curved upward from April through June, though the curve flattened in July. Daily deaths fell to the low thirties in mid June, and have been in single digits since July 20.

In April, Swedish epidemiologist Anders Tegnell explained to Nature magazine that Sweden started from the understanding that COVID-19 “is not a disease that can be stopped or eradicated…until a working vaccine is produced,” and that widespread lockdowns would be incompatible with Swedish laws, which “are mostly based on voluntary measures — on individual responsibility.”

“Closedown, lockdown, closing borders — nothing has a historical scientific basis, in my view,” Tegnell said. “We have looked at a number of European Union countries to see whether they have published any analysis of the effects of these measures before they were started, and we saw almost none.”

Notably, Tegnell also acknowledged that Sweden “underestimated the issues at care homes, and how the measures would be applied. We should have controlled this more thoroughly.” This was the same error infamously made in New York, suggesting that Sweden’s overall early outlook was disproportionately impacted by nursing home deaths.

Although Sweden did not implement a draconian lockdown, nor did its general population suffer terrible infection rates, it has been accused of committing “active euthanasia” on its elderly coronavirus patients.

Nursing homes in the Nordic country have been accused of denying their patients basic medical care including food and water and giving them respiratory-inhibiting drugs like morphine and midazolam.

Latifa Löfvenberg, a nurse in Sweden, said, “People suffocated, it was horrible to watch. One patient asked me what I was giving him when I gave him the morphine injection, and I lied to him.”

“Many died before their time. It was very, very difficult.”

“Regarding its medical facilities, the Scandinavian country’s approach was to keep hospital intensive-care units from being overwhelmed with elderly patients who had a low chance of surviving and thus keep them open for younger people should a surge in the virus occur. Such a surge did not happen and the elderly were denied access to unused facilities,” reported the Christian Post.

“They told us that we shouldn’t send anyone to the hospital, even if they may be 65 and have many years to live. We were told not to send them in,” according to Löfvenberg.

The Christian Post noted, “Those suspected to have COVID-19 were quickly placed on palliative care, given morphine, and denied supplementary oxygen and intravenous fluids and nutrition.”

“For many residents, this was essentially a death sentence.”

The Swedish Public Health Agency said that “48.9% of deaths were care home residents up to and including 14 May,” the BBC reported that month.

While numerous international headlines have recently begun expressing openness to the possibility Sweden’s non-lockdown overall strategy paid off, other reports still urge skepticism. The Hill health writer Chia-Yi Hou writes that “we will never know if doing more would have actually helped.” MedPage Today quotes doctors attributing the results to variables such as Swedes spending more of their summer outdoors.

Sweden not locking down appears to have also benefited the country economically. While the country’s second-quarter GDP dropped an historic 8.6%, CNBC reports, it still fared much better than others declines in Europe, such as Spain (18.5%), Portugal (14.1%), France (13.8%), and Germany (10.1%), as well as the overall European Union decline of 11.9%.

  1. A legal procedure is coming alive now in The Netherlands, with the right to refuse regulations related to the pandemic. Through membership of the campaign, assistance is offered by means of forms and actions defending our right to decline submission.
    More in the following newsletter:

    This is the latest news on the site of the “Dutch National League Against Government Affairs” founded by Jordy Zwarts and his team. I’ve translated it with ImTranslator.
    The Dutch website is www.bondoverheidszaken.nl

    “Dear member or action participant of the Association, you can sideline corona enforcers and mayors right now!

    ‘Our’ national and local administrators have unfortunately not yet stopped forcing their corona measures on us. The Bond will soon start a lawsuit to reverse these measures and prevent the introduction of a corona speed law. The mayors of Amsterdam and Rotterdam have introduced a so-called ‘masking duty’ and entrepreneurs in small and medium-sized businesses have been experiencing the adverse effects of the restrictions imposed on them for some time. Last week, police forced a supermarket owner to close his store because he allegedly failed to comply with corona rules. Tonight Mark Rutte said that birthdays and other parties at home may only be celebrated with a maximum of six guests.

    The League against Government Affairs opposes the corona policy as there is no factual basis for that policy. In order to support those who want or have to oppose the corona measures in daily practice, the Bond has developed ‘tools’ that they can use for this. These tools include a contract that someone can hand over when attacked by an enforcer (special investigating officer, police officer).

    The document enables everyone to stand up (on the spot) and put the enforcer in a very difficult legal position. Forcing you to wear a mouth mask in public space, or forcing you to close your shop, is then in fact no longer legally possible.

    In the short term, together with a partner organization, we will start our Enforcement Action, which is primarily intended for entrepreneurs. Before we start this promotion, we would like to give you and all other League members and campaign participants the opportunity to receive the material we have developed first.

    If you become a member of the League now or extend your membership from 19 euros per year, you will receive this material immediately and for free! Those who have joined since January 1, 2020, will automatically receive the material as a courtesy from the Association. If you want to participate but your membership does not expire yet, your membership will be extended by 12 months.

    The action package intended for you includes the following:
    Legal notice in ongoing pro forma objection
    This document, in which you indicate that the person may no longer control you, you send to the mayor.

    Enforcement contract
    You hand this document to the enforcer who is attacking you. He has to sign the document or you won’t do business with him.

    Mayor’s contract
    You also send this document, which regulates his personal liability and responsibility, to the mayor.

    Letter of resistance
    You can submit this document to the Public Prosecutor in response to the unlawful corona fine (punishment order) that you may have received or will receive.

    Videos with instruction
    We will soon be recording webinars explaining how to use the ‘tool’ against enforcers. You will receive an email from us with a link to the videos as soon as they become available.

    In the court proceedings soon to be brought against Mark Rutte, we will demand that your corona fine, if you have received it, be annulled. Would you like to teach the enforcers a lesson? Register now as a member or extend your membership! Did you become a member in 2020? Then you don’t have to do anything and you will receive the promotional package for free in your digital mailbox later this week.

    Membership

    We have already informed the mayors of all municipalities in the Netherlands about our Enforcement Action. In addition to the above-mentioned documents, they have also received our Mayor’s letter, in which Jordy Zwarts demands from the mayor that he or she hands in the factual basis for the corona measures. Because of this preliminary work, you will soon be even stronger in your defence against the enforcers.

    With kind regards,

    Jordy Zwarts
    National League Against Government Affairs

  2. “Do you know the emerging theory of what viruses could be: exosomes? Are you absolutely sure that COVID-19 is contagious? How confident are you of the results of the corona test?

    Watch this video of Mikey Landings with Dutch subtitles. He bases his story on the work of Dr. Tom Cowan, David Crowe, Dr. Andrew Kaufman and John Rappoport, among others.

  3. Great news, about Sweden doing so well. I’ve met a Dutch woman who has lived in Sweden for a few years and she told me that one thing stands out when you meet Swedish people and that’s the truthfulness and trust in friends’s and neighbour’s intentions. In hers as well. Sweden is a shining example of disobedience to control.
    Even when they have very long dark winters in that Northern part of planet Earth.
    I’ve also spoken to a Mexican couple, that told me of the relatively low number of cases in their home country. Also in Africa. We don’t hear that much about how Africa is doing, eh?
