Deaths per 100000: UK=62.9, Sweden=57.6, Canada=25.0, Germany=11.3, Denmark=11.0.

Very poor data and understanding on long term consequences of Covid-19 for survivors but some horrific stories out there..

Tell me again how Sweden is doing great. I would say the jury is still out on the whole herd immunity thing too, any supposition that herd immunity exists assumes a much greater seropositivity rate than the current rate of 17% using documented data.
Plenty of "experts" making guesses in press statements that it's much higher. In public health though we use numbers, not guesses.

I really wish people without public health training would stop making the claim of herd immunity when they really don't understand what they are talking about. Talking to you, Rand Paul.
