What I don't totally understand about Sweden is whether this is the outcome they were expecting or not. If you do deliberately half-assed social distancing (not trying to get R < 1) then inevitably a lot of people are going to get infected and die. https://time.com/5817412/sweden-coronavirus/
So why the hell would you do that? Well, if you think it's inevitable that a large fraction of the population is *eventually* going to get infected sooner or later, you might want to "get it over with". I think that's a big mistake, but that's basically what Sweden is doing.
