It is interesting how many ways there are to end up with a dead cat, or in the case of Sweden, a live cat. It certainly looks as if the idea of getting herd immunity became a non-starter and we went for lockdown and at great cost to mind body and pocket whilst Sweden has slightly fewer deaths 4500 i...
