“The biggest error governors and state officials made during COVID, particularly in blue states, was shutting down their economy and schools,” Steve Moore, co-founder of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, told Fox News Digital. “We hope that the findings of this research will influence governors not to shut down schools and businesses the next time a new viral variety emerges.”
According to the report, New York, California, New Jersey, and Illinois were among the worst when it came to dealing with the coronavirus, performing “poorly on every measure.”

According to the research, these states “had high age-adjusted death rates; high unemployment and considerable GDP losses; and they kept their schools closed for far longer than almost all other states.”
In fact, Republicans run 13 of the top 15 states in the research. (Until the 2020 election, Montana had a Democratic governor.)
The study also found no link between lower death rates and states that adopted rigorous travel, vocation, and dining restrictions.
The paper concluded, “The analysis supports earlier studies that have showed that locking down businesses, stores, churches, schools, and restaurants has essentially no effect on health outcomes across states.” “States that imposed stringent lockdowns fared no better in terms of COVID death rates than states that were generally open for business.”
