Do you English? It's not about age or quality of healthcare. It's about how many people are dying in a year per capita. 2020 will land at about 2012-2013 level for Sweden. Meaning all the years before that, more people were dying each year, adjusted for population size. Meaning almost every year of the past 100 years was deadlier. 2020 would have likely seen a bump in mortality without Covid, considering they had 3 record low years in a row 2017-2019. It would have been much smaller, and the mortality increase in 2020 is undoubtedly historic. It just isn't that bad, though. You can't actually be this dumb, right? I feel like you are just refusing to grasp this very basic concept. 2020 was still a historically great year for total number of people dead in Sweden because any given person had a much lower chance of dying than throughout most of history, with only a few exceptions, and those exceptions are of a minimal difference.This is related to Covid so why would I give a fuck about the average agf of Sweden‘s population or the quality of their healthcare system. This is exactly why excess mortality is used as a key figure and not overall mortality. And for this relevant key figure s opposed to your irrelevant one it was the deadliest year since 1918.
