Social distancing survey: 36 million Americans’ #1 way to cope is online shopping

Richard McKenzie, Professor Emeritus Walter B. Gerken, Merage School of Business, University of California, Irvine, writes, “I worry about the science behind the widely promoted six-foot social distancing rule. Trump’s experts say they are following the data and “science,” but I’ve never heard one point to a scientific study on how they came up with the rule. I guess that they are relying on their best hunches and task-force consensus. I did see one early study where the scientists pointing out how water droplets fell to the ground before six feet, but that was one study done indoors.”
