Obviously these lockdowns could have all been avoided, it would however had increased the deathtoll unless other more effective measures had been put in place.

Lockdowns are an effective short-term solution but then eventually you need to open up again. What lockdowns do is simply buy you time until you can get other measures in place like providing everyone with FFP3 masks and extensive testing.

About Sweden
Sweden didn't do any significant legally mandated lockdowns but the population did follow a lot of volumtary measures including social distancing, Sweden did not do too well in terms of stopping the desease, currently we are #13 in the world in terms of deaths/1000000

For some reason Anders Tegnell doesn't really believe in masks and becuase of that most people are not using them even though they clearly work.


If we had been using FFP3 masks at large scale early on it's likely we would have done a lot better.

It's likely that the reason why some authorities have denied that masks are effective is becuase they initially lied in an attempt to make sure hospitals would not run out of masks and now they cannot admit they lied to they have to continue denying science to avoid losing face.

Why the herd immunity strategy is insanity
One strategy to deal with the virus is to just let it spread. One obvious problem with that strategy is that it would overwhelm the hospital system so the deathrate would be needlessly high (around 2%).

Another strategy is to just manage it enough to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed but then you have to do restrictions for a long period of time which will end up being more expensive than doing more aggressive measures to eradicate the virus.

Even if the same number of people do get infected a delay is beneficial for another reason, over time the healthcare system will become better at treating covid-19 which will lower the mortality rate.

Eventually a vaccine will be ready and this might allow us to immunize the population in a far safer manner than natural infections.

Pffft, lockdowns. Normies just put the masks on their chins only. They still party
And group.
Only incel tier scientists can solve corona, but why the fuck would they.
Even if they were paid milions for it, which they wont cause some becky will get that and the credit, also the chads tallfags at management. And the money cant buy them anything of value beyond what min wage can get them.

One argument against lockdowns is that "the same number of people would go on to die later anyway" this is clearly false. Over time the healthcare will improve and thus for the same number of infections later fewer will die. Now vaccinations have started and thus we can get to herd immunity without killing 0.5 to 2 percent of the population.
