Only 65 Covid 19 deaths in Sweden in the last 30 days.

Simply, you cannot trust the data without knowing the data source. Remember Statista is a data aggregator and most of the time it shows up data from other sources. Those sources can be highly unreliable. So, need to do proper due diligence before using its data

Multiple source correlation is preferred please and thank you.

How about instead of asking the the guy that cited a data source to provide more, you actually take the time to cite something that refutes it? Oh wait you can't.

You sound like the guy who was telling me everyone who died in a car accident in the past 6 months was labeled a covid death.

Dude cited a data aggregator. Not a source. Read the quote.

Don't blame me for what is said about Statista.

Oh wait, you didn't read my post.

Fair enough, I didn't cite my source. I just searched Statista, and found that. Is it true? Who knows? Point is, multiple sources are more helpful than one.

Everyone who provides Covid data is an aggregator, unless you're going to your actual county health department. Why don't you look where they actually aggregated the data from before your outright dismiss it.

Here is another source
https://www.worldometers.info/corona...ountry/sweden/
It's interesting to note that as more techniques and treatments are discovered, and as testing ramps up to find asymptomatic cases, the mortality rate will improve, so in a way it's more important to be stringent at the beginning (which Sweden wasn't) when the mortality rate will be highest. I mean Sweden "allegedly" has more deaths from it than China right now.

It also means none of the other Nordic countries will catch up to Sweden in terms of deaths, and so they sacrificed those extra people.

Netherlands is close but I don't know if they count?

Good points.

On China and data—I’m suspicious of much of the data at this point.

The US may be over reporting, but I think it’s likely that MANY are under reporting due to politics.
