Sweden Beats CV19… by NOT Shutting Down… #Vikings
Sweden has beaten coronavirus by refusing to shut the country down and achieving herd immunity, according to an expert.
The Scandinavian nation was the only country in Europe not to introduce strict lockdown measures at the start of the pandemic.
But scientists believe that this may have helped it avoid a second wave of Covid-19 as it continues to record its lowest number of cases since March – with just 28 infections per 100,000 people.
This figure is less than half of the UK’s own infection rate of 69 per 100,000 people.
Professor Kim Sneppen, an expert in the spread of coronavirus at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, said that Sweden might have beaten the pandemic.
He told Denmark’s Politiken newspaper: ‘There is some evidence that the Swedes have built up a degree of immunity to the virus which, along with what else they are doing to stop the spread, is enough to control the disease.
