Sweden’s novel approach to dealing with the coronavirus 

Sweden is continuing to use an alternative approach to combat the spread of coronavirus. Swedes are insisting that their approach to avoid a total shut down of their country as the primary method of containing COVID-19 is the only effective way to continue the battle against the pandemic.

On April 9 NPR reported that “Imperial College in London, which has been a very influential place when it comes to setting government policy in response to coronavirus found that a long-term lockdown was not necessarily the best decision for public health… Another recent study from Harvard's Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases found that a long lockdown was less effective at dealing with pandemics than shorter, more-targeted social distancing measures.”

Since most countries have adopted a knee-jerk policy to coronavirus, Sweden’s approach will most likely be put-down and mocked. If successful, Sweden’s approach will make policymakers elsewhere look incompetent.
