Earlier, we compared deaths from all causes in the countries of Scandinavia. In this post, we compare deaths from all causes of Sweden, a country with never locked down or mandated masks to that of Belgium, a country with harsh lock-downs and mask mandates. Although Belgium and Sweden are not direct neighbors, the populations of the two countries are very close together, unlike the populations of the other Scandinavian countries.
I leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions.
Despite locking down, the other Scandinavian countries also instituted much lighter restrictions than Belgium.
