U.S. county level analysis to determine If social distancing slowed the spread of COVID-19.

Conclusions: As policymakers face the very difficult question of the necessity and effectiveness of social distancing across the U.S., counties where the policies have been imposed have effectively increased social distancing and have seen slowing the spread of COVID-19. These results might help policymakers to make the public understand the risks and benefits of the lockdown. PMID: 32636878 [PubMed]
