Lockdown or no lockdown, covid-19 death curve looks to be self-flattening

“If Sweden stops at about 5,000 or 6,000 deaths, we will know that they’ve reached herd immunity, and we didn’t need to do any kind of lockdown,” predicted Nobel-laureate Dr. Michael Levitt (Chemistry and structural biology at Stanford) back on 4 May 2020. “… it’s not going to destroy humanity as people thought. ”

And what happened? As of August 30, 2020 Sweden has reported 5,808 deaths, well with Dr Levitt’s parameters:

“Yep,” says TRM. “The lockdown was for nothing. Check out Dr Levitt’s other work on this covid-19 stuff. Very good.”

  1. text translated from this swedish page


    “about 6,000 people, with an average age of 81. Half of the victims were nursing home residents who in Sweden have a average life expectancy of 9 months after admission (a large part of the other half remained at home with home care).”

    Again the question needed to be asked is, did they with Covid19 or off Covid19.
    3000 (50% of total death) people died from Covid19 with an averge life expectancy of 9 month….

  2. So the graph shows the cumulative deaths in Sweden since March 11?
    I admit to a preference for graphs showing the daily deaths, as it shows nearly zero.

    “In Sweden, daily corona deaths are now close to zero. The overall mortality rate is in the range of earlier strong flu waves. Even the monthly peak mortality (in April 2020) remained below the strong flu waves of the 1990s.” https://swprs.org/facts-about-covid-19/

    At about page 6 of this site is a graph comparing deaths per million in New York State and Sweden, but I don’t know how to import the graph.
    NYS deaths per million: 1670 Sweden 540

    45% of US corona deaths occurred in nursing homes. Over 50% occurred in the six states that actively placed Covid patients in nursing homes.

  3. Covid 19 is a biological tempest in a tea pot cooked up to support a political and financial agenda that is not in the best interests of the public. Look to the sources of financial distress and political duress to find the miscreants behind this nonsense.
