You should take a look at the article Rolfe linked to in the Sweden thread: It compares countries, strategies and outcomes - so far.

From the graphs in that article there's something a bit alarming going on. The "something a bit odd" I mentioned above was that Sweden's cases, although not declining, seemed to be on a plateau rather than continuing the exponential increase. The graphs in the Pueyo article are showing new cases taking off like a rocket in early June.

It is one of the most comprehensive articles about the 'territory anomaly' I have read.
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
