We Can Reduce The Spread Of COVID By 30% By Closing One Place Or Something

It’s such a simple thing, you know. Can you guess what that place is?

Closing This One Place Could Reduce the Spread of COVID by 30 Percent

When it comes to reducing the number of new COVID cases, there are many ways individuals can help limit the virus’ spread, like wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, and washing hands both thoroughly and often, just to name a few. However, new research reveals that there’s one public health measure that can drastically reduce the rate of COVID growth—and all it takes is shutting down a single spot. Read on to discover how experts say we could be significantly lowering COVID numbers, and for the latest expert-backed news about the virus, Dr. Fauci Just Gave This Warning About Stopping COVID Entirely.

According to a Dec. 2020 study published in the journal PLOS One, there’s one COVID control measure that’s proven more effective than any other when it comes to slowing the spread of the virus: closing down workplaces. While there are clear economic ramifications associated with doing so—and it’s not feasible for workers in every industry to perform their jobs remotely—the study’s authors found that workplace closings implemented at the highest applicable policy level could reduce viral spread by an estimated average of 32.5 percentage points.

See? It is simple. We’ll just close workplaces. We’ll essentially just close the economy. Man, if only we had tried this back early on, you know? Oh, they want to close even more? How about we start with making the news media and politicians non-essential workers, see how they feel?

The research also found that restrictions on internal movement, stay-at-home requirements, public information campaigns, and school closings were the next most effective means of limiting the spread of COVID.

How’s that worked so far? Nations with much more restrictive movement orders, like Italy, Germany, and the UK, are floundering. Public information nagging? Perhaps they should spend more time on social distancing, washing hands, and not touching your face like early on, instead of mask naggings. Schools? OK, then let’s reduce the education funding since they don’t need the buildings anymore.

It feels like so many of these articles are about being informative, they’re about telling Other People that they should Comply.

    “At the moment, I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines, to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from getting the infection and passing it on,”(WHO) Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan

    Of course, a close look at the research released by Pfizer and Moderna shows the studies haven’t actually tested whether the vaccines actually prevent transmission of the virus; the goal of the trials was to see whether vaccinated patients presented with COVID symptoms at a rate that was substantially less frequent than individuals who hadn’t been vaccinated. That’s pretty much it. Though the data might hint at lowering transmission rates, that’s still tbd, apparently.

      Science-speak is always necessarily conservative. It’s likely the vaccines DO reduce viral transmission but it is unproven. What was shown was that vaccines greatly reduced/prevented symptoms.

      Vaccines led to higher levels of antibodies that appear to inactivate the virus. Typically, virus shedding is higher with sicker (more symptomatic) patients.

        So to Rimjob, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

        Good one!

          Poor Suckbutt (aka Dickbreath) can’t read or is a dishonest moron. He is likely both.

          His only point in on his head.

          Here’s what Dr. Swaminathan said: “I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from getting the infection and passing it on.”

          Understand that scientists rely on actual evidence, not feelings or beliefs. She makes it clear that there is not sufficient evidence to claim that the vaccines prevent spread, even if every other vaccine extant does. Evidence! You should try it.

    And if you can smell the fart your mask is NOT WORKING!!!!
    If cloth can not contain a fart how is that mask going to stop a covid virus?
