The Scandinavian country of Sweden now has the lowest excess deaths from Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) among many nations worldwide because it did not impose lockdowns and kept schools open.
In a Nov. 8 piece published on his Substack, political activist and commentator Joel Smalley pointed out that Sweden only had a 6.7 percent rate of cumulative excess deaths from COVID-19 between 2020 and 2022. In contrast, the South American nation of Chile had a 64.1 percent rate of cumulative excess COVID-19 deaths in the same period – about 10 times that of Sweden. Compared to Sweden’s no-lockdown approach, Chile heavily relied on draconian lockdowns and vaccinations to address the pandemic.

“Experimental attempts at mitigating the spread of the [SARS-CoV-2] virus through various ‘social distancing’ measures – including school and business closures, imprisoning healthy people in their homes, forced wearing of masks, etc. – show very little evidence of benefit,” Smalley wrote. “The harms of these interventions are also apparent in the ultimate excess death numbers.”
The political activist also pointed out the insanity of putting “the same people responsible for making [COVID-19] in charge of making the antidote,” which Smalley compared to “putting arsonists in charge of fire policy after they have burnt down the city.”
“It is abundantly clear that there is no reduction in COVID deaths as a result of the mass administration of the experimental ‘vaccine,’” he wrote
