And then I clicked on the top suggestion for this topic and got an article with these quotes:
"Cornell researchers say social distancing doesn’t completely stop COVID-19 from spreading"
"We find that social distancing is associated with a statistically-significant reduction in the doubling rate for all but three states. At the same time, we do not find significant evidence that social distancing has resulted in a reduction in the number of daily confirmed cases. Instead, social distancing has merely stabilized the spread of the disease."
"The new research revealed that coronavirus infections were doubling every three days before social distancing practices were initiated. When people eventually began to adhere to them by staying at home and managing a distance of at least six feet apart from others while in public, the rate slowed down even more— doubling every 100 days."
I can see how social distancing rules do not work until you, you know, adhere to them. But thats hardly the fault of social distancing rules.
Also the next hits for this topic:
- Wearing Face Masks and Social Distancing Actually Work to Contain COVID-19, According to a New Study - Time Magazin
- Why people didn't social distance - Stanford News
- Coronavirus: Face masks and social distancing do work, but... - Sky News
But then we get a great article! Heres the headline:
BREAKING NEWS! Covid-19 Prevention: New Study Proves That Social Distancing Of 1 to 3 Meters Is Nothing But Fake News and Misinformation
Its from the Thailand Medical News and it reads just great and very trustworthy:
We at Thailand Medical News have always favoured stringent lockdowns, self-isolation, frequent testing as the main strategies to curtail the spread. Now with more studies emerging that social distancing really does not work, we strongly advocate that individuals and the public worldwide start taking legal actions and class suits against all sites, experts and authorities advocating social distancing of between 1 to 3 meters as these ignorant buffoons are actually endangering the lives of many.
But then again its from the 1st of april so maybe its only a bad joke...
I leave it at that.
