"Per million people, Sweden has suffered 40 per cent more deaths than the United States, 12 times more than Norway, seven times more than Finland and six times more than Denmark."

 

"Sweden’s central bank expects its economy to contract by 4.5 per cent this year, a revision from a previously expected gain of 1.3 per cent. The unemployment rate jumped to 9 per cent in May from 7.1 per cent in March. “The overall damage to the economy means the recovery will be protracted, with unemployment remaining elevated,” Oxford Economics concluded in a recent research note.

 

This is more or less how damage caused by the pandemic has played out in Denmark, where the central bank expects that the economy will shrink 4.1 per cent this year and where joblessness has edged up to 5.6 per cent in May from 4.1 per cent in March. In short, Sweden suffered a vastly higher death rate while failing to collect on the expected economic gains."

Achieving herd immunity globally would require approximately 250 million people to die from COVID (557k have so far).

Canada has 50x the death rate of Singapore and only 9% unemployed (although 50% of the working population is collecting either the CERB or CEWB)..

 

You can pick whatever stats you want.

Sure but none of them point to herd immunity, and none of them make Sweden a shining example.
