Also, as previously discussed in this thread... some countries have very different ways of counting Covid casualties. Which of those are countries that report only primary cause of death?This isn't 100% correct. Sweden introduced guidelines and restrictions as early as anyone else yet didn't go for the Lockdown strategy. We went for the social distancing and hygiene strategy. This worked at first because of our population density and because we could all be outside. The main fault was not isolating the very elderly in care homes. Certain care workers were super spreading the virus amongst the care homes. The vast majority of deaths in Sweden are the over 80's who have home helps or live in care facilities. The number of cases in Sweden is still increasing but the numbers of deaths has fallen now that care home visits are restricted.
As of 3 march 2021:
UK deaths per 1 million: 1858 (258 deaths per million reported in the last 30 days)
Sweden deaths per 1 million: 1265 (127 deaths per million reported in the last 30 days)
USA deaths per 1 million: 1579 (209 deaths per million reported in the last 30 days)
Brazil deaths per 1 million: 1229 (157 deaths per million reported in the last 30 days)
