I've answered that so many times already, that Sweden claim they were hit harder at the beginning of the pandemic, that Sweden failed in protecting care homes.

Now Denmark has a higher infection rate than Sweden. All the countries you mentioned are doing better than the rest of Europe in spite of having no mandatory mask requirement. More inconvenient reference points!
Sweden did not fail to protect care homes, it was a deliberate policy to only give palliative care so as to reduce the load on hospitals. One March 17 FHM directive to Stockholm hospitals stated any patients over 80 or with a body mass index above 40 should not be admitted to intensive care, because they were less likely to recover.

More misinformation being spread about Denmark vs Sweden.

Yesterday Denmark had 1,017 new cases in a population of 5.8 million and Sweden is running close to 2,000 daily in a population of 10 million.
