In Sweden, Will Voluntary Self-Isolation Work Better Than State-Enforced Lockdowns in the Long Run?

With data, as in most pursuits, the devil is in the details.

In light of extensive differences in testing thresholds & frequency and in light of different criteria for repoeting deaths, makes an analysis of Sweden’s experience with COVID19 very insightful.

And also in light of these considerations, comparing case fatality rates of different countries with our current data is nearly useless.

Sweden is not doing as well as most libertarians would hope, but not nearly as as bad as pan-lockdown proponents would have us believe.
