The vast majority of COVID-19 deaths in Sweden are people over age 70. I've read speculation from some market watchers in media and Swedish acquaintances on FB that the government may have chosen to treat elderly patients less aggressively, mostly focusing on palliative care than cures, to avoid burdening the health care system. But those are just anecdotes, no more authoritative than my radical leftist and rightist American acquaintances.

As with the US, COVID-19 appears to pose little or no risk to children. And comparatively little risk to adults under age 60.

Which is why we are doomed to watch this run its course as it wipes out a significant number of elderly and disabled folks, who will be considered acceptable losses in favor of allowing the party to continue without harshing anyone's buzz.
