Study: Homebodies Are Doing The Best At Slowing Pandemic And Staying Well
A new study shows, rather unsurprisingly, that staying home slows the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
According to UPI, a new study analyzed cellphone use data across the US between January 22nd and May 11th.
Areas with lots of homebodies had, on average, a 19% lower growth rate in new infections than areas where residents liked to be out and about.
And areas with the highest increases in cellphone activity in residential areas saw, on average, a roughly 7% decline in COVID-19 case numbers overall.
Based on our analysis, we feel that adherence to stay-at-home advisories helps slow the spread of the disease. Study co-author Dr. Shiv Tej Sehra Chief of Rheumatology, Mount Auburn Hospital, Cambridge, Mass.
