Evaluation of Science Advice During the COVID-19 Pandemic in Sweden
Professor Nele Brusselaers, MD, PhD discusses the pandemic response in Sweden. Early on, it appeared that the main strategy by the government was to reach herd immunity. Official emails stated that children could be used to obtain herd immunity and at the same time the official message was that children could not become ill with COVID-19. Schools similar to other indoor venues can spread the disease. Parents were not always informed of outbreaks in schools. The main message was to wash your hands. Masks were stated to cause panic and acne and described as dangerous. Healthcare workers were not allowed to wear masks in some facilities, one was even fired for doing so. COVID-19 cases were not timely and accurately reported in the beginning of the pandemic. Sweden had too little testing and more deaths, hospitalizations, and ICU admissions than the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Iceland, and Finland.
