May 5th   Although health officials are still learning about the transmission of the coronavirus, there is no evidence that it can spread from an infected person through food they have handled or prepared, according to Harvard Health. 

Until one sneezes (or coughs) on it just before its packed for delivery. Or lick their fingers. Not everyone is wearing mask.

I like RV's approach because we are in the vulnerable category.

If someone frequents restaurants where food prep people and waiters sneeze on food, then they need to think about changing the restaurants they visit.

Sweden may not be the best example of a successful recovery. Swedes don't tend to live close together and have an excellent health care system. They also have much higher numbers for COVID-19 cases and deaths than their Scandinavian neighbors. Their deaths per million rate ranks in the top 10 in the world. And their economic recovery rate is about the same as other EU countries.

...but is their economy in the toilet like the rest of Europe?

Imagine if Ike had called off D-Day because he knew there would be many killed. Not apples for apples but it might make some think. A ruined economy means lots of deaths also, just not ID'd as CV on the death cert.

That's exactly the point.  If you read the piece you will see the Swedes have taken serious steps to limit the spread but they understood there is a trade off between having more deaths and staying economically viable.  They still limit big gatherings and other high probability of transmission activities but they did not stop their economy.
