A new study regarding the handling of COVID has been published.
The Committee to Unleash Prosperity (CUP) released its findings on Monday.
Ironically, many of the states applauded by Democrats and the media garnered failing grades, while states that got crushed by the media, such as Florida, were among the top states in the country.
A vs. F
The press release of the study reads:
“The study verifies other studies which have found that locking down businesses, stores, churches, schools, and restaurants had almost no impact on health outcomes across states. States with strict lockdowns had virtually no better performance in Covid death rates than states that remained mostly open for business.
“The study also found that keeping schools closed had almost no impact on the death rates of children or adults, but it did severe damage to the educational progress of students.”
According to the study, Utah (A+) was the top-rated state, followed by Nebraska (A+), Vermont (A+), Montana (A), South Dakota (A), Florida (A), New Hampshire (A), Maine (A), and Arkansas (A).
The states at the bottom of the study… New Jersey came in dead last, which is rather amazing considering the strict lockdowns that were put in place.
One could almost make the argument that lockdowns hurt more than they helped.
After New Jersey, it was Illinois (F), California (F), New Mexico (F), and New York (F-).
So, what do all of those stats have in common?
If you guessed that they are all run by Democrats, you get the door prize.
