Perhaps Sweden is going to show the world how herd immunity can work if you can just grit your teeth, prepare mass graves, and stick it out. Greenhouse gas warming and less ice may provide them unexpected advantages, more available land for burials.

    • Sounds like the swedes are being as dumb as turnips ,,,,
