Sweden is open and says coronavirus can’t damage its routine

Six months into Sweden’s maverick no-lockdown coronavirus response, a gradual reckoning of the costs of the country’s approach has begun.

The death toll in Sweden is now 5,810 people, which on the face of it makes the country one of the worst performers in Europe on a deaths-per-capita basis, alongside the likes of the U.K and Spain.

A government inquiry was initiated at the end of June in an effort to identify what went wrong — the Public Health Agency has already said the spread of COVID-19 within elderly care was a failure — and lessons could be learned. Sweden’s school  reopened after 6 months and the teachers welcomed everyone with open heart and everyone is keeping social distance.
