Behind The Swedish Model (2022)
Directed by Viktor Nordenskiöld, 75 mins
Behind The Swedish Model is a unique behind-the-scenes documentary from deep within the Swedish Government, following the decision-makers behind their controversial fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
As the pandemic spread with frightening speed from March 2020 onwards, governments all over the world struggled to find the right response, and Sweden was one noteworthy outlier.
Swedish public health chief, Dr Anders Tegnell and his team focussed on long-term measures rather than short-term lockdowns, which they considered high-risk and an imposition on personal freedoms. Most schools, gyms, bars and restaurants remained open, a response that astonished governments, medical experts and media sources around the world.
Nearly three years after the first cases were reported, what are the learnings from both approaches?
