Sweden’s Covid Death Rate Among Lowest In Europe, Despite Avoiding Strict Lockdowns

Sweden was widely criticized during the early stages of the pandemic for refusing to implement draconian national lockdowns. As the latest statistics from the World Health Organization show, however, it actually had fewer deaths per head of population than much of Europe.

A key factor in Sweden’s lower death rate from COVID-19 is that it has low rates of obesity. Along with other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and respiratory diseases, obesity is well known to increase the risk of death in people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Towards avoiding future pandemics, this yet again emphasizes the importance of governments worldwide initiating science-based natural preventive health strategies.

While many governments claimed they were ‘following the science’ and that there was no alternative to enforcing lockdowns during the pandemic, recent research published by Johns Hopkins University shows that school and border closures, confining people to their homes, and limiting public gatherings had virtually no effect in reducing the number of deaths from the virus. The researchers stated outright that they found “no evidence” such restrictions had any noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality.

Other research shows that lockdowns are linked to worsening symptoms of depression and other mental health problems. Similarly, long-term self-isolating patients have been shown to be five times more likely to die from COVID-19.

To learn about the latest research from the Dr. Rath Research Institute which found that a specific combination of micronutrients and natural plant extracts is effective in protecting against the original SARS-CoV-2 virus and many of its key variants, see this article on our website.
