While the rest of the world went into lockdowns during the COVID pandemic, Sweden chose a different path. Aside from cancelling main sporting and entertainment events, it chose to remain open.
People were even discouraged from wearing masks.
This decision was immediately bashed by the hysterical political and media elite, particularly the latter.
So two years later, the Swedish government decided to review its decision and compared the end result of it decision not to lockdown, with what happened in the remainder of Europe where harsh lockdowns were the flavour of the day.
And the Swedish government concluded it had made the right decision because the lockdowns essentially made no difference when it came to stopping the spread of the virus and deaths due to COVID.
The Daily Mail reports:
According to The Telegraph, the report warns against imposing further lockdowns in response to ‘a new, serious epidemic outbreak’.
Swedish officials claimed some countries that imposed lockdowns had significantly worse outcomes than the Scandinavian country.
