Sweden has pursued its own distinct path when it comes to tackling the coronavirus pandemic. While Sweden's decision early in the pandemic to allow bars, restaurants, schools and shops to remain open was almost unthinkable for the rest of the world under lockdown, the Scandinavian country is now being looked at by some as a model for the future.
