COVID-19 infection rates are allegedly falling in states that have lifted their coronavirus lockdown orders, according to a new study.

Research from investment bank JP Morgan shows infection rates actually decreasing - rather than increasing as some warned - after lockdown measures had ended.

JP Morgan's study was outlined by CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla in a lengthy Twitter thread.

The research appears to counter the warnings from media and political figures.

Many have been predicting dire consequences for those states when coronavirus lockdown measures began lifting.

In his analysis, Quintanilla described JP Morgan's findings as "devastating."

“JPMorgan has a devastating piece arguing that infection rates have declined — not increased — in states where lockdowns have ended, ‘even after allowing for an appropriate measurement lag.’ (Kolonavic),” Quintanilla said on Twitter.

Quintanilla’s next tweet included similar patterns “for various countries,” opining that “the pandemic and COVID-19 likely have its own dynamics unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures that were being implemented.”

The CNBC anchor then quoted from the research with his next several tweets, according to The Daily Caller.

The first of which contended that, while the lockdowns may have been “justified initially,” policymakers did not take into account the “millions of lives” that “were being destroyed … with little consideration that [lockdowns] might not only cause economic devastation but potentially more deaths than COVID-19 itself.”

JP Morgan opined about the partisan divide surrounding the ongoing response to the epidemic:

The news comes as many citizens in states across the country are questioning the necessity of statewide lockdowns.

A central California city has defied its Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom's statewide lockdown order by declaring itself a "sanctuary city" that won't enforce the state's measures.

The Californian city of Atwater has declared itself a "sanctuary city for businesses" and will allow reopenings, despite the state's shutdown order.

The resolution was passed Friday by the Atwater City Council.

Under the city's new status, business owners will be allowed to open and individuals can openly defy the Democratic governor’s coronavirus-related stay-at-home order.

The resolution asserts “the city’s commitment” to provide “fundamental” human rights to its residents.
