Comparing city transit data in 2020 across 3 major cities. Stockholm (Sweden), Berlin (Germany), London (UK). Can you guess which one is which?
One of them apparently doesn’t have a lockdown in place 😇 Can we see how responsible Swedes are? Without mandatory measures, without having to shut down anything, they have voluntarily self-isolated, and taken steps to mitigate risk.
The difference in policy mainly reflects the level of trust and the bias people have towards acting in a responsible manner. It translates to very little difference on the ground. Sweden is far from “no lockdown” as some might have as believe.
We want to get back to “normal” and be more like Sweden, this is what that sustainable normal looks like.
