5. Research shows the cities that used masks and social distancing in 1918 fared better than others

https://www.influenzaarchive.org/about.html
After an intense, year-long examination of the public health response of 43 American cities during the 1918-1919 epidemic, researchers at the Center for the History of Medicine and the CDC concluded that those cities that used social distancing measures and other non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPI) in 1918 fared better than those that did not. More specifically, we found a strong association between early, sustained, and layered use of NPI and mitigating the consequences of the epidemic.

Masks and social distancing were found to be effective in 1918. It's a shame that we in 2020 can't learn from 102 years of history
