As of 6/2, WHO lists a total of 4,403 C-19 deaths in Sweden. Multiplying by 32 to scale up to the size of the US yields 140,896 deaths. Per the same WHO reported numbers on 6/2, the US C-19 death toll is 104,247. This means the less intrusive Swedish approach to coronavirus mitigation has resulted in 35% greater deaths, without yet accounting for timeline differences in general transmission dates seen by these two countries.

Today’s updated CDC numbers show a US total of 105,157 deaths from C-19 as of 6/1 at 4pm. Yesterday’s reported number was 104,396 total deaths from C-19, for a one day increase of 761 additional deaths. As of 4/28, the CDC daily report format changed and the breakdown of total deaths into categories of ‘confirmed’ and ‘probable’ is no longer clearly stated. It is reasonable to suspect that the ‘probable’ category continues to be roughly 10% or more of the reported total.
