    For the most part, life in Sweden has not changed. While most of Europe locked down, Swedes kept enjoying many freedoms, including Telegraph journalist Richard Orange. Schools, restaurants, fitness centres and even borders have remained open, but at the same time it coincided with a per capita death rate that was much higher than in other Nordic countries. Nonetheless, its relatively low-key strategy has captured the world’s attention and as fears of a second wave grow across Europe, it’s fashionable to praise Sweden. While coronavirus infection numbers surge in much of Europe, Sweden reports some of the lowest numbers of new cases. Overall, Sweden has 88,237 reported infections and 5,864 fatalities from the virus, or 57.5 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants since the beginning of the crisis. Whether Sweden’s strategy is succeeding, remains still uncertain.
