Public Health Officials Worried The US Could End Up Like Sweden

Public health officials are worried that we could end up like Sweden, where there are almost no COVID-19 deaths occurring, people aren’t wearing masks, and concerts and spectator sports are about to resume.

  1. Tony, Thanks for your MANY excellent, level-headed videos. I heard about a brand new study comparing the number of lives (counted in human-life-years) saved by the lockdown with the number of lives cost (deaths caused) by the lockdown. I searched for it, but could find it. Maybe it’s been censored already because the cost is 10 fold the savings. It was referenced in a video of the Rubin Report in which Dave was being interviewed by Michael Knowles. I understood Michael to say that it was a report (out yesterday /Aug 31) published by Revolver. You’re obviously a skilled researcher and analyst. If you found it, I believe it would fit nicely in your portfolio of published videos.

    The Washington Post where lies propagate and spread like maggots in a dead carcass.
    The truth is, the death rate now in Sweden is well within the bounds of natural attrition.
    The combined European death rate appears to be headed below normal seasonal attrition.
    What is more, I recon if the extra attrition curves were integrated for both the 2018 flu season and the covid spike, the extra deaths would not be alarming at all. In fact a good number of those covid deaths would be attributable to harsh lockdown measures and fear mongering.

    Absolutely common sense!

    I’ve compiled an interesting collection of comments on the subject – which includes (surprise! surprise!) the Swedish graph – and an overview of a number of treatments with my observation that the way this pandemic has been handled seems to be governed by a combination of money and politics! (Surprise! Surprise! – Again ……)

    OMG! Heaven forbid we should be done with this virus like Sweden has been!

    A veritable treasure trove here:
    A few highlights:
    – Why did Glaxo-Smith Kline acquire the seemingly innocuous “23andMe” DNA testing?
    – Why is Chelsea Clinton involved in contact tracing of citizens via bluetooth?
    – Why were eight U.S. Congressmen in attendance in a contact tracing confab in Rwanda in August LAST YEAR (that’s August 2019)? They included Bobby Rush (D-IL), principle author of the HR-6666 $100 billion Trace Act.

  8. Morgan in Sweden says:

    In Sweden Covid-19 is rapidly loosing ground.
    Even though media here in Sweden try hard to convince people that they should wear masks, very few does, maybe 2-3% in the subway, almost none above ground.
    Stockholm is doing very well even though there is almost no use of masks. In the Stockholm area, which has approximately 2 million inhabitants, there are at this moment 4 people in intensive care, there used to be more that 200 at the peak in May. There are 38 people hospitalized in Stockholm, at the peak there were more that 1000.
    In Sweden as a whole there are 150 people hospitalized. Sweden has 10 000 000 inhabitants. The decease is dying in Sweden and it is not due to masks or that we do not socialize, we do, but due to herd immunity. That herd immunity works is clear to each and everyone here in Sweden, well that is unless you are a journalist.

    Here in the UK if masks cause you anxiety or distress you don’t have to wear them. Just download an exemption card off the gov website. Got to the supermarket and get a special lanyard from behind the counter and good to go. No more masks.

  10. richard says:

    only around 9,500 actually died of covid the others mostly had other diseases that most likely killed them

    Table 3 shows the types of health conditions and contributing causes mentioned in conjunction with deaths involving coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death. The number of deaths with each condition or cause is shown for all deaths and by age groups. For data on comorbidities”.

    Great post Tony. And you need to dig around on the internet to find the great news out of Sweden…Google makes sure to hide it as much as possible.

    For example, right now (0748 Eastern DST 9/1/2020), do the following search on both Google and DuckDuckgo: CDC 6% COVID

    You’d expect the official CDC website for COVID-19 Provisional death counts to be the first hit, but its nowhere to be found using Google whereas its your first hit on DuckDuckgo.

    Now, who exactly is the enemy of the people? Can you believe Google’s slogan was once “do no evil”?

    • Mike Fahey says:

      Who is the enemy indeed. The media needs a serious overhaul … worldwide. Why are they so infatuated with anything not Trump. The future is uncertain. We are at a tipping point … of propaganda induced bad decisions

    The Ministry of Truth out in full force with this scamdemic.

    Everybody should read 1984 by George Orwell. Or, you can have it read to you on audio by someone with a British accent – choose your favorite search engine and click on a free video audiobook. Depending on the person reading, it’s +/-10 hours, so some readers have cut it into smaller bites. Or, you can watch the movie, also available with a quick search.

  13. Mats Lindberg says:

    There are now 17 persons i ICU with Covid-19 in the whole country, and only 11 new contaminated since yesterday (84532 have been diagnosed totally). In a country of over 10 million inhabitants. As a swede I’m not exactly trembling with fear, I have been working all spring/summer, in spite of being type-1 diabetic.

  14. Shawn Rodgers says:

    Approximately 90% of the Swedish COVID deaths occurred in nursing homes. Sweden actually rationed care to COVID nursing home patients. The Swedish government has confirmed this. Withholding oxygen from someone who is suffocating is the cause of death. A distancing policy might correlate with the deaths, but it is the cause that matters.

    if only!

    This is positively priceless:

  17. Gamecock says:

    The Amazon Post declares herd immunity a ‘controversial’ strategy.

    It’s really the opposite of a strategy. It’s what happens if you do nothing. I guess they insist we “Do something!”

    The way the disease has progressed, with our limited ability to control it, herd immunity is what is going to happen, anyway. There was some value early in the pandemic in throttling the spread, but those days are gone.

    The sooner we achieve it, the better. The Left is exploiting the pandemic, hence they aren’t really interested in ending it, as herd immunity will do. They want it delayed.
