Thank you so much for sharing!

If this is true:

“I think the critical lesson from both the modeling and the historical work is that the benefits of multiple interventions are greatest if they are introduced early (before 1% of the population is infected) and maintained,”

Then there might be hope for Sweden after all. If the real numbers are 100x higher than confirmed cases it’s too late already. But if they are 10x higher then there is still time. Not much, but some.
