The country is notable for its "low-scale" lockdown. Gatherings of more than 50 people are banned and high schools and universities are closed — but primary schools, restaurants, and many businesses are still open. Its death rate is almost six times that of Norway and Finland.

However, the scientist behind that plan is still unsure whether the country made the right decision. The country likely won't avoid pandemic-related economic fallout.

"I'm not convinced at all," state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet. On "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah," he said that the "death toll really came as a surprise to us." Scientists in the country have also spoken out against the approach; testing in the country has lagged, and a commission has been formed to evaluate its response. A University of Virginia analysis found that the choice not to lock down led to more deaths.

While Norway and Denmark will allow citizens to travel between the two countries, neighboring Sweden has been excluded.
