Sweden 🇸🇪 excess deaths is at an epic high in 100+ years.

2020 has both the **most number of excess deaths** & **highest per capita excess deaths** than any year since the 1918-1919 pandemic.

Swedish #COVID19 herd strategy my ass.

Similar story in US. 🧵

5) 25 leading Swedish scientists:

➡️”🇸🇪 hoped herd immunity would curb #COVID19. Don't do what we did.”

➡️ “🇸🇪 approach to COVID has led to death, grief and suffering. The only example we're setting is how not to deal with a deadly infectious disease”

Quoted @DrEricDing

📍DON’T CHASE SWEDISH HERD STRATEGY. As many know, 🇸🇪 took the careless “herd” strategy in spring to let the coronavirus run rampant. Huge #COVID19 deaths compared to its Nordic neighbors. But Swedish leaders claim they built herd & will win in 2nd wave. Here is how it’s going:

4) Note to self / any government, NEVER EVER CHASE NATURAL INFECTION HERD STRATEGY... here is how it went for Sweden 🇸🇪 and all their denials / spin by their “Scott Atlas” equivalent, Tegnell. #COVID19

3) Excess deaths captures both underdiagnosis (if someone died without ever having a positive test) or indirect effect on healthcare system that leads to other deaths due to displaced healthcare (hospital full, ambulance delayed, medical equipment shortages, staff shortages, etc)

2) Excess deaths are defined as the difference between the observed numbers of deaths in specific time periods and expected numbers of deaths in the same time periods. The expected average is from 2015-2019.

WOW—Biden WH is much more aggressive with #COVID19 safety and testing—and so much more organized says CBS News @PaulaReidCBS.

Adults are clearly back in the WH.

JUST IN—Biden’s new CDC Director @RWalensky announces that CDC will review all of its #COVID19 guidances.

School risk?
Airborne transmission risks?
Workplace safety?
Church safety?
Quarantine rules?
Rapid testing?
Distance rules?
Travel risks on planes, buses, trains?

so much!

📺 FINAL TV AD:

We were warned about the risk of #COVID19 becoming a pandemic in January. Scientists knew and many sounded the alarm.

And @realDonaldTrump knew, but he decided to “play it down”. So many have died needlessly.

#Vote because our lives depend on it.
