Sweden’s strategy, for the long haul

Summary:
Lockdowns will slow the virus (temporarily?), but will damage the economy (temporarily?).  Sweden is trying a different strategy. “It is important to have a policy that can be sustained over a longer period, meaning staying home if you are sick, which is our message,” said Tegnell, who has received both threats and fan mail over the country’s handling of the crisis.“Locking people up at home won’t work in the longer term,” he said. “Sooner or later people are going to go out anyway.” Let's try to learn from this experiment.
