Sweden fucked it up for sure, could have protected old peoples homes way better and had alot less deaths.
Apart from Stockholm/Gothenburg/Malmo people do have (in general) a lot more space than most, housing and leisure wise which makes it a lot easier to social distance.
Was back home in August and as per usual not many people hug/kiss and (my opinion/experience only) family interaction is not as important as in other countries. It's just easier to keep distance to one and other.
Also Swedish people(me included) are well programmed to follow what authorities/government tell you to. Not necessarily a bad thing in these circumstances........really bad/easy for getting people to vote right wing though....
Compared to UK yes, pensioners are definitely more healthy in Sweden(my opinion only). Hard to compare though cause Sweden and UK are very different in most ways tbh, history, geography, politics.
The other Scandi countries did much better at the start than Sweden(Finland still doing really well) but are now feeling the same backlash as other countries. Dosent mean that much though. They are all different countries with different circumstances.
I personally think Sweden did the right thing for their circumstances. If you asked me about Swedens stance in May I would have said something very different.......
