I tried estimating the death rate, using the above page and population figures from Wikipedia:

Stockholm County
Incidence rate: 281.1 per 100,000 persons.
Death rate: 1 in 2,100 (1,128 dead of a 2.4M population).

Gothenburg (including Västra Götaland County)
Incidence rate: 101.1 per 100,000 persons.
Death rate: 1 in 12,700 (134 dead of a 1.7M population).

Malmö (including Skåne County)
Incidence rate: 43.0 per 100,000 persons.
Death rate: 1 in 25,000 (57 dead of a 1.4M population).

Note that not only does Stockholm have a higher incidence rate, but also a much higher death rate.

I think the way a lot of people deal with the situation is very bizzare, At around 8pm the other night I was sat typing when I heard distant drumming that started getting closer & closer reminding me of the scene in Moria in Lord of the Rings, By the time they were coming in to view I didn't know whether to run away or hide under my bed but then I saw them a gaggle of 20 or 30 drummers many of who were sporting blue & pink hair while banging away on a collection of homemade drums, It took the drums another 10 minutes or so to move away & go silent but it left me thinking what was that all about? They were flaunting the stay home order as well as the keep away from each other rule making me think what's the point?

As expected, the spring weather has made everybody go out here, completely ignoring any social distancing practices in the process. Wonder if it will show in the stats the next few weeks.

Didn't they carry signs? Strange. But I guess the main point is to be seen (hence the blue and pink hair), the particular reason varies with the phases of the moon.

I wouldn't be surprised, we've been told to expect waves, In the last 23 hours the death rate's halved compared to the period before that which is nice

Very Mad Max-esque

Some did but I didn't get much of a look so I haven't got a clue what they said, Probably drum for the NHS or something along those lines.

We are doing exceedingly well in terms of COVID-19 deaths per capita: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/bc-covid-new-normal-activities-social-anxiety-1.5544951

Unfortunately, some shops are putting up signs that they won't be reopening.

I'd been expecting the Worlds eggheads to have come up with some sort of treatment by now & considering the level of medical intelligence the fact that they haven't is a bit worrying.
I don't believe it came out of a market as we'd of come across it long before now, that said maybe we have come across it in the past & it's killed groups of people but never had the opportunity to spread as it has in today's World.
If so it's possibly the answer to many unexplained deaths that have happened over the centuries.

Remdesivir is showing signs of effectiveness: https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/04/first-treatment-for-sars-cov-2-shortens-recovery-time/

This is fortunate because we don't have many treatments for viral infections, in general. There are no effective remedies for the common cold, for example; pretty much, just tamiflu for influenza.
