Goldman Sachs says a national US mask mandate could potentially substitute for lockdowns


GS says lockdowns would subtract nearly 5% from GDP.

  • But, wearing masks could substitute.

GS say:

  • a national mask mandate could cut the daily growth rate of confirmed cases by 1.0pp to 0.6% 
  • face mask mandate could potentially substitute for lockdowns that would otherwise subtract nearly 5% from GDP

Yep.

This is not rocket science. But, the economy (ie people’s livelihoods) is being sacrificed on the ideology culture war alter.
