SLL suggested the same thing a year ago. Oh well, better late than never for MIT. From Tom Pappert at nationalfile.com:
After over a year, scientists have determined that social distancing and limited occupancy rules may be totally useless.
The study reveals that the social distancing guidelines employed throughout much of the world for over a year have done nothing to limit the spread of COVID-19, suggesting that the adaption of the guidelines did not stop the spread of the of the China-originated virus, and it can only be slowed with the employment of severe lockdowns. Paradoxically, states and cities that have engaged in severe lockdowns have seen the largest spikes of COVID-19.
