Our take —
In this study of 10 countries during the spring of 2020, the authors found no evidence that countries implementing “more restrictive” NPIs such as stay-at-home orders and business closures reduced their daily growth in new COVID-19 cases more than Sweden and South Korea, who were categorized as having “less restrictive” NPIs. However, the analysis suffers from several methodological problems that undermine confidence in the results, and should not be regarded as providing much evidence in support of the conclusion that lockdown was ineffective.

Except:

1) This is just one of many such studies.

2) Not a single valid study exists that demonstrates the effectiveness of specific NPIs.

3) No one has presented a scientifically valid explanation of how the majority of observed NPIs could work.
