Sweden's per capita death rate is about 2.5 times Canada and about 1.5 times the US. its testing rate per capita is just over half Canada and the US. I don't know that they are a great example to follow.

Look at China's numbers. By their (stated) numbers, they're one of the best examples to follow. Should we just do that at face value, or delve into the speficis of each country, before formulating an opinion?

While we're on the topic of Sweden, here's an interesting take on their predicted verus actual results...it's a short read, don't be scared.

As was stated the more you test the more you will likely find. Perhaps deaths and ICU cases are a better comparison.
Sweden with a population approximately equal to our 4 western provinces reports 3313 deaths and 500+ in ICU.
Our 4 western provinces have a total of 269 deaths and 26 in ICU.
Quebec on the other hand had the misfortune to have the virus get into the population before they realized, have results more in the line of Sweden despite having a somewhat lower population.
Sweden is counting on having better immunity in the population going forward. Time will tell.

Moderator- I think you’d better close this down. It’s turned weird
And not about Canada/US border crossings.

When it comes to ‘community transmission’ small counties with densely packed populations and an extremely small ‘rural’ (read ‘isolated’) population are incubators, breeding viruses.

To compare countries like the US and Canada with a huge rural, spread out populations to compact densely populated countries is a little less than relevant....... to put it very politely.

Kinda like the people that give DP based advice to people with a B asking questions.
