doing well at the moment in relation to corona
What metric are you using to define "low cases" and "low mortality"?
Sweden registers 7,187 new COVID-19 cases, 171 deaths
The country of 10 million inhabitants registered 234 new deaths since Friday
Other countries figures
They have the 24th highest per capita death rate of the 221 places on worldometer.So, roughly 9 out of 10 places are doing better.Please explain how you came to the conclusion that they are
the headline reads
Quote The country of 10 million inhabitants registered 234 new deaths since FridayOver a 3 day period they would have been unlikely to register 100

In 2019 I had the privilege of visiting several of the Nordic (ex-Viking) countries- I get the impression from my brief visit that these countries have more of an attitude of "we're in this together, let's cooperate"

AFAIK Piers Morgan is not an expert in anything, so it isn't surprising if his questions are meaningless.
‘Too little, too late’Last Friday, 10 months after the pandemic hit, parliament finally granted the government the powers it would need to shut private businesses such as shops, gyms and sports halls. A week later, it hasn’t used them, despite one of the fastest rates of virus spread in Europe.
Asking why we have the highest death rate in the world is not a meaningless question,
The question that needs to be answered is who is to blame for consistently putting "the economy" before public safety, and thereby destroying both?
An interesting article here (especially the graph at the bottom of the page):https://spectrum.ieee.org/biomedical/ethics/dont-be-too-quick-to-judge-swedens-covid19-policyIt shows that without a lockdown, Sweden took longer to get COVID under control, compared to other European countries.In contrast, in 2020 the USA never really made a serious attempt to get COVID-19 under control- On his last day in office, Donald Trump achieved a significant milestone: In just 10 months he accomplished what took 44 months during the wartime urgency of World War 2: The death of 400,000 Americans.
