How Has Sweden's Strategy Panned Out?

The world has closely watched Sweden’s light-touch approach to pandemic restrictions. Now, like many of its neighbors, the country’s cases are surging—possibly at the fastest rate in Europe. 
 
Swedish officials have denied striving for a form of natural herd immunity, but they did predict a milder second wave compared to countries with strict lockdowns. That has not panned out—immunity in and around Stockholm is much lower than predicted.
 
While the outcome isn’t good for Sweden or its stricter counterparts, the fresh waves in other countries “might suggest Sweden’s decision not to lock down has not played a significant role in the recent surge in infections.”
