Their strategy may be working exactly how they intend - Get it over and done with, thinking they will have a similar amount of deaths either way – but with a less affected economy.
Yeah fair enough I’m definitely not familiar with the micro-demography of the distribution of the Swedish population. I do though note, looking at the list of European countries whose numbers can be vaguely relied upon, that the worst performers in terms of mortality either have very large populations (Italy, Spain, France) or relatively high population densities (Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland).
