Both Sweden and Florida avoided full lockdowns throughout the pandemic.

Lockdown activists constantly bring up the COVID-19 numbers in Sweden and Florida as proof of why lockdowns work and are necessary to curb the spread of the virus.

But what do the numbers actually reveal? Anthony Furey takes an in-depth look.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
