Nowhere in that article does it say that Sweden has reached herd immunity and Swedish authorities have never claimed it has. In fact I haven't heard anybody make that claim except for that guy in the video.
We can most definitely say that herd immunity has not been reached, else there wouldn't be any new cases! Simple as that.
Besides, recent antibody testing done in Stockholm showed only 7.5% of those tested have had the disease.
[Quoter's note - Above paragraph instead discussed in my next post]
Try actually reading what @Geoff.D posted from the article, believably claimed to be quoted from a senior medical representative of the country. They think it could be reached in some areas as early as this month, close enough since there's no definite finish line involved...Instead of knocking me for being "too certain" of a pretty much undisputed fact (and somehow confusing that with emotion???) maybe you can explain why you or anyone else would think that herd immunity has been reached in Sweden?
Stop wriggling like a snake, else I'm done debating with you - there ARE other factors to consider.
As for there not ever then being new cases, nonsense, that's too closed minded - for e.g. someone can come back from abroad with it all over again.
EDIT: See my next post re the coloured paragraph.
