Jackson Corona Virus Index no 2.
This index is a useful epidemiological tool to understand e.g. the necessity of lock-downs and other parameters.
Sweden a scarcely populated country is well known for its laissez-faire attitude and no lock-downs. Compared to other low populated areas like Finland and Norway Sweden have an extreme level of infected people.
Amount of Corona Infected People correlated to population density shows Sweden clearly is worst in the world when it comes to protect its residents from infection of SARS-CoV-2.
This correlates well to Swedens world wide known permissive attitude against the virus. A splendid ”laissez faire” attitude aiming at herd immunity through spreading of the virus without lock-downs.
(please write to my Twitter account @ebmpsykiatri if you find a country with worse ratio as I have not counted every country)
Sweden: Infected numbers 1064375. Population density 23/squarekilometer. Ratio: 46277
Italy: Infected numbers 4197892. Population density 201/sq.km. Ratio: 20385
United Kingdom: Infected numbers 4467310. Population density 267/sq.km Ratio: 16731
Germany Infected numbers 3660547. Population density 230/sq.km Ratio: 15315
Norway Infected numbers 122917. Population density 14/sq.km Ratio: 8779
Hungary: Infected numbers 802510. Population density 106/sq.km Ratio: 7571
Brazil Infected numbers 16121136. Population density 26/sq.km Ratio: 6200
Finland Infected numbers 91744. Population density 16/sq.km Ratio: 5734
Bosnien-Herzegovina: Infected numbers 203513. Population density 69/sq.km. Ratio: 2949
Beligium Infected numbers 1049822. Population density 369/sq.km. Ratio: 2345
Denmark Infected numbers 275207. Population density 135/sq.km Ratio: 2038
The reason why Norway and Finland have a lower degree of death index (index no. 1 previously presented) than this index no 2 of infected numbers might be explained by good health care systems and not overloaded hospital beds.
This corona index no 2 is besides corona index no 1 Dr Jacksons second important contribution to medical science. The first contribution was when he showed that Swedens epidemic of thousends of tube fed lifeless children (apathetic/resigned) in reality was severe child abuse.
