We were talking about the point of our COVID-19 policies being about preventing deaths. We now see from OurWorldInData that different countries had very different results in regards to excess deaths. While Sweden has had more deaths than its Scandinavian neighbors of Finland and Norway, it has less than half of the excess deaths of the United Kingdom and less than a third of that of the United States. If we truly care about the deaths, finding out why that's the case and what's driven the high excess deaths in some countries looks to me like an important project.
Does anyone have a good graph of why the status quo looks the way it does?
