State Lockdowns Aren’t Having an Impact in COVID-19 Death

#stayhome order doesn’t statistically make sense

Many states have instituted massive lockdowns (“stay at home” order) of their populations to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Some states have chosen not to do so. The goals of these lockdowns have included the proposition that they would slow the spread of the Coronavirus Sars-Cov-2 virus which causes COVID-19 and thus prevent death.

Is this helping?

One way to look at this would be to compare the COVID-19 deaths in states that do and do not have stay-at-home orders in place. Although these comparisons have their limitations, nonetheless, the statistics speak for themselves and can be used to assess the effectiveness of a lockdown policy.

Our response to it should not make it worse.
