    States that have stay-at-home lockdown orders do not have fewer cases of Covid-19 per million people and do not have fewer deaths from Covid-19 per million people than states that used only social distancing according to political scientist Wilfred Reilly.

    “the social-distancing states… [plus South Carolina] experienced 663 fewer cases per million and 42 fewer deaths per million on average than the lockdown states [minus New York],” notes Reilly.
