Evolution number of deaths Belgium versus Sweden 06/05/20

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).

Time for conclusions. Sweden did worse than Norway and Denmark, but the armageddon announced by experts did not happen. The situation in Sweden is also much bettter than the situation in locked down Belgium. If any new trend arises, we’ll get back to you.
