2020 (untill week 51) excess mortality when standardising for each countries age structure
Please note Sweden's position. So, why the hate against Sweden and the Swedish way of tackling the pandemic? Because Sweden shows that lockdowns and mask mandates aren't necessary. Sadly they could not use data for Germany, which I would have found really interesting as I live in Germany at the moment. From the article:
Unfortunately, data from Germany are only available as total death counts for the whole country and are not broken down by age group, we therefore cannot include Germany in most of our analyses.
