New study reveals blueprint for getting out of Covid-19 lockdown – University of East Anglia

Relaxing stay-at-home orders and allowing some types of non-essential businesses such as shops to reopen are the lowest risk measures to get the UK and other European countries out of lockdown – according to research from the University of East Anglia.

  • Stay-home policies were not associated with a decline in incidence, and actually showed a positive association with cases. As the number of lock-down days increased, so did the number of cases.
  • Face coverings may even be associated with increased risk, but the data quality for this is very uncertain.
