Sweden is now seeing two-week periods where no one dies of COVID. It’s a remarkable record considering just over 40% of the country’s citizens have been fully vaccinated.

They believed the best way to stop the virus was to build up a herd immunity allowing those who were not vulnerable to the virus because of age or underlying health conditions, to catch COVID, and build up a natural immunity.

Secondly, once the vaccines were available, they focussed primarily on making sure those most susceptible to COVID were fully vaccinated first.
