In this May 17, 2020 interview with RNZ, Johan Giesecke, physician and professor emeritus at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, offers a clear explanation of the Swedish approach, their bases for their decision, as well as the future advantages their approach offers.
Editor’s Note: We cite this article here despite its age because some countries are still on lockdowns, and a number of Giesecke’s pronouncements have materialized. For example, we are now seeing an increase in coronavirus infections as some lockdowns are eased – a clear proof that countries that locked down have not truly controlled the spread of the virus, but rather, moved the eventual infection of citizens at a later time.
Giesecke also said in the article that natural collective immunity is still the best protection against the coronavirus. Today, some researches are showing cross immunity – exposure to other coronaviruses offers some immunity to SARS-COV-2 [read Immune systems of recovered COVID-19 patients recognize SARS-COV-2].
This interview with Giesecke offers to us a discussion of the science Sweden used to decide on its approach. From this, we can see clearly that lockdowns were no more than wide-scale experiments [evidence shows that this experiment has failed, see Science Has Spoken: End The Lockdown], and has caused more problems than they resolved.
If your country is still on a lockdown to this day, then you should start asking yourself why your government insists on using this failed experiment.
