The only European country that has used common sense and that did not force its citizens into a lockdown was Sweden. The reasoning behind that was to save the economy. And they relied on the discipline of the people to not gather together with more than 50 people, but that’s about it. And now there comes a convenient plus with that decision.
A study by a Swedish mathematician called Tom Britton shows that they are approaching “herd immunity” and by June this will mean that the population will protect itself from the corona virus by this immunity that will be around 45 % in the population. The virus will eventually die out in the population because it cannot spread fast enough anymore.
So, conclusion, they saved their economy AND will be safe from the virus way faster than all other countries. How about that... So, my advice to every leader in the world: open up and end the lockdowns!
