It's not the total answer but you get more bang for your buck with
facemasks than with just about anything else, it's a no brainer, it's the
very first thing you should do because it's cheap and easy and helps quite
a lot, but unfortunately Trump decided to make facemasks part of the
culture wars which severely limited its use, especially in red states.

In addition New York City shut everything down and didn't reopen again
until the virus had reached very low levels. In contrast, on the very day
that Florida had by far the largest number of new COVID-19 cases that ANY
state had EVER had, Disney, with the encouragement of the Republican
governor, decided to reopen the largest amusement park in the world!
