    If the United States had implemented social distancing policies just a week sooner, it could have prevented more than half the number of coronavirus deaths and infections, according to new research from Columbia University.


    And if the country had locked down two weeks earlier than it did, it could have prevented 84% of deaths and 82% of cases, said the the research team, led by epidemiologist Jeffrey Shaman.

    How dumb must one be to continue to cite some "model" as evidence for anything, especially when we know every other "model" they ever cited has been horrifically wrong?

    COVID was in the U.S. in November/December. Unless someone had the vision to shut the country down around Thanksgiving time, this storm could not have been prevented. Carry on.
