Updating data on comparatives between Sweden (the 'natural experiment' for 'Covid19 is just a flu' crowd, albeit the pandemic was not treated as such in the country itself) and the Nordics.
Note: I define three groups of 'Nordics' by composition.
First, for completeness: case counts:
In simple terms, Sweden's policy approach to the pandemic, as contrasted by other Nordics, has resulted in
- 6,137 deaths in excess of Nordics 3 group (Finland, Norway, Estonia, Iceland, the Netherlands and Denmark)
- 11,219 more deaths than (population-comparable) Nordics 2 group (Finland, Norway, Estonia, Iceland), and
- 12,512 deaths in excess of Nordics 1 group (Finland and Norway).
