Evolution number of deaths Belgium versus Sweden 8/04/20

Mid march Belgium and Sweden seemed in a similar Codvid-19 position. Belgium went in lockdown. Sweden took softer measures. Some experts* warned that Sweden took too few actions. We follow the situation calmly. We know that those figures are not always comparable (probably not all countries give reliable figures). We added Denmark & Norway as well (stronger lockdown measures than Sweden).

Remark: Sweden seems to show a decrease of deaths during the week-end and have a spike on monday, probably a delay in reporting issue.
