Social distancing one week earlier could have saved 36,000 US lives: study

The U.S. could have avoided nearly 36,000 deaths caused by the coronavirus through early May if stay-at-home orders and other social distancing restrictions were implemented just one week earlier, a new study from Columbia University researchers shows.

The study, which focused on transmission in metropolitan areas, found that social distancing measures adopted throughout the nation after March 15 "effectively reduced rates of COVID-19 transmission."

The researchers estimated that had the measures been instituted just one week earlier that the U.S. may have avoided more than 700,000 confirmed cases of the virus and as many as 35,927 deaths that it caused.


The researchers also estimated that if lockdown measures were instituted as early as March 1, approximately 54,000 fewer people would have died by May 3.

“It’s a big, big difference. That small moment in time, catching it in that growth phase, is incredibly critical in reducing the number of deaths,” Jeffrey Shaman, an epidemiologist at Columbia and the leader of the research team, told The New York Times, which first reported on the study.

Experts: 90 percent of US coronavirus deaths could have been avoided if measures taken just two weeks earlier
Two medical experts say issuing social distancing measures just two weeks earlier could have drastically changed the trajectory of coronavirus deaths in the United States.

Joseph Guzman

The White House began issuing social distancing guidelines on March 16.
Epidemiologists argue if the guidance was issued on March 2, deaths could have been reduced by 90 percent.
If issued a week earlier, deaths could have reduced by an estimated 60 percent.
The novel coronavirus has killed more than 31,000 people in the United States and top health officials project about 60,000 Americans will die from COVID-19 by August, but two experts say the majority of deaths may have been avoided if social distancing measures were implemented just two weeks earlier than they were.

Epidemiologists Britta L. Jewell and Nicholas P. Jewell Tuesday wrote in an op-ed in The New York Times that 90 percent of coronavirus deaths in the U.S. could have possibly been avoided if social distancing began March 2, when there were only 11 deaths recorded in the nation. If such policies would have been put in place one week earlier, on March 9, the epidemiologists say there could have been a 60 percent reduction in fatalities.

“Whatever the final death toll is in the United States, the cost of waiting will be enormous, a tragic consequence of the exponential spread of the virus early in the epidemic,” the experts wrote.
I will let the virus "Wash over the Country".

In many cases, here on OPP, had the mother of the person posting refrained from intercourse one day earlier, we would all be spared reading BULLSH!T!

See how “hindsight” works?

By the way, Nicolas Jewell is not an epidemiologist, he is a statistician and his stats are cooked to reflect his daughter's opinion.

As usual, the NY Times publishes crap. Do you know how many of the early deaths came from nursing homes where people were FORCED to be in close proximity without any protective equipment? Keep dreaming. When President Trump is re-elected, I plan on selling seats to people who wish to watch Liberal heads explode.
Your "epidemiologists" have completely neglected to mention that there was no indication of any sort of pandemic that "epidemiologists" could even agree on much earlier.

Something else I just found is that these two "epidemiologists" are a father daughter team in England and only one of them is an epidemiologist. The other is a statistician. I guess the Times forgot that part. This means the whole NY Times op ed is based on one "scientist's" opinion.

Just like all the earliest forecasts of how it was going to kill 2.4 million people in the US, forecasts have proven to have nothing to do with reality! Garbage in...garbage out!

It is truly terrible how natural disasters tend to catch humanity by surprise.

The folks in central Michigan would’ve like to had more warning before a 500 year flood occurred. Yet, no doubt, they’ll look to blame somebody.
