I just found a site that has organized states by severity of lockdown, then graphed that against COVID death rates.
The graph in question is this one:
The graph’s X axis is lockdown ranking, with the least locked-down on the left, and the most on the right. The y axis is the death rate.
As far as I can tell there appears to be no real statistical difference between states that are locked down and ones that aren’t.
It’s also baffling that Texas has been open for a while jow and has some of the lowest infection rates in the country.
Anyone care to speculate what’s going on with this data?
