This paper serves to demonstrate California's state-wide lockdowns were less effective than more directional lockdowns in controlling the spread of the virus and saving human lives placing unnecessary socioeconomic hardship on all citizens of the state. Comparisons are made between pre- and post-one year socioeconomic states of the state in California. This study offers an examination of anecdotal studies to compare the handling measures and responses across various states, countries and regions. Also included is an examination of one empirical study analyzing the impact of socioeconomic variables on COVID-19 death rates across states.
