Figures from Statistics Sweden weigh in on the debate on COVID-19

Here are some public death statistics for the months up to and including April. The data was published on June 5, 2020.

The numbers seem to suggest that either the international Corona scare was exaggerated (which I believe) or that the “Swedish Way” was successful. Either way the strong lockdowns in large parts of the world would seem to have been uncalled for.

For our companies, the pandemic has had several positive effects, but the general result is, of course, catastrophic.

Statistics from Sweden about COVID-19. A minor increase in death rate in 2020.

Daily and weekly figures for the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its consequences as reported by authorities and media have this far been speculative and confusing.

Official Swedish figures that were released on the 5th of June 2020 are still preliminary but are based on reported and scrutinized figures. The first table shows the death rate for comparable months. The second table shows the total number of deaths per month. Both are based on the published official statistics from Statistics Sweden.

Figures for May 2020 will be available in the beginning of July.
