 Sweden and Singapore's risky routes
Topic Originator: OzPar  
Date:   Tue 28 Apr 08:00

This a very interesting snippet from Australian TV, where the ABC's excellent health reporter, Dr Norman Swan (who happens to be a Scot), talks about the outcomes from Sweden and Singapore's approaches to Covid-19.

It is quite short and is well worth a watch.

The Swedes approach has been heavily criticised from within the country by a number of health professionals.

Their percentage death toll is 3 times that of Denmark and Germany and 6 times that of Finland.

Density of population is also a central point - in Sweden it's 25 inhabitants per square kilometere, in the UK (example for comparison) it's 280 people.

Comparing countries without considering a variety of factors is misleading.

Latest figures have Sweden as second highest death rate per head of population in the world now.
Second to the UK.

Not that it's a competition but UK is still behind three other European nations and Sweden behind several more.

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd
