The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has produced a report with a dozen mathematical comparisons between 25 countries in Europe.
Theme: Developments in the corona situation over the course of eight months – from March to the end of October.
Almost all arrows point to Sweden as Europe’s worst.
Sweden is, among other things, the worst at reducing the so-called R-number, the worst at reducing the treatment time in the hospitals’ intensive care units and at reducing the population’s movements – and thus the risk of infection spreading.
The OECD has 37 member countries. 27 of the countries are located in Europe, and all the Nordic countries are members.
Here is the entire OECD report with corona and covid-19 status with different angles.
In Nordic news websites, the report with comments from Sweden’s state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell was first published by journalist Emmanuel Karlsten.
Tegnell: – Interesting
Tegnell was present when the OECD presented the thick pile of corona statistics. He thinks the report “is in many ways an exciting and interesting comparison”.
– Is it not, on the contrary, an extremely unvarnished picture of the inefficiency of the Swedish strategy, asks the Swedish journalist.
– No, the OECD has not included the background for what is behind it. The description of the various comparisons is extremely dependent on the context to make any sense. It is very difficult to draw conclusions without that background, Tegnell answers.
Moves as before
Among other things, he points to a curve that shows that Sweden has done the least of all the 25 countries to prevent the population from moving around less. Read: Worst attempt to prevent the risk of infection.
That comparison is made for the three months of March, April and May. Ergo before Sweden began to tighten in earnest.
Sweden tops this “worst-case statistic”, which shows that Swedes’ movements in daily life had only changed by 7.2 per cent compared to normal.
Latvia comes out second worst here with only 8.2 percent change, Denmark number 3 from the bottom with 9.7 percent and Norway No. 5 from the bottom with 11.9 percent reduction in people’s movements in the first three months.
The worst are the best
The large contagion countries Italy and Spain come out best with just over a 20 per cent reduction in “migration”. But there already drastic restrictions had forced themselves.
A comparison between the 25 countries of the so-called R-number (reproduction / spread of infection) shows that Sweden (58 days), Great Britain (54) and France (50) have clearly spent the longest time getting the R-number below 1.
This means that the average number of covid-19 infected people infects less than one person further.
In the new OECD statistics, which in this comparison run over eight months, Norway comes out as the 7th best with 27 days.
Malta is by far the best with 11 days ahead of Iceland with 18 days.
The average for EU countries is 34 days. Denmark has spent 38 days getting the R number below 1.
Self-criticism at one point
Sweden’s state epidemiologist and voice / face externally only takes self-criticism about the Swedish handling at one point when he is confronted with the massive, negative statistics.
– One of the statistics points to the death rate among the elderly in Sweden. There we wished we knew what we know today, says Anders Tegnell.
