Covid 19 and sports

Most of the problem states are blue states with respect to the virus. But, they are also financial messes as well. While liberals have morphed into socialists, there are rhino republicans that follow right along. It’s a big problem.
It’s interesting to note that other countries now are coming to the realization that shutting down business to prevent mass infections and death may also contribute to the ability to fight the disease as well. Along with causing societal problems more dangerous too. Switzerland has not shut down at all.
As far as I can tell, neither has Russia and they are showing little spread of the virus.
One mistake we made and people including Cuomo are saying is we should not have shut down universities and sent them back home to parents and grandparents to infect them. Duh!
Not only that, the task force is walking back their initial geometric math models of the potential spread and death and using epidemiology models and reducing the numbers dramatically. As I posted from the beginning, The idea 80% would get the virus and 2 million die was idiotic fearmongering that caused the nutty responses including the need now of the first of 2 trillion dollars bills. Those fear mongers should go to prison!

The last study I read was today that said 40-70 percent of the population in the US would most likely get this virus and this has been reported by FOX news as well. Italy has maintained that one of the three main problems with the virus spreading were young people ignoring the stay home orders and partying together in large groups and although they aren’t nearly affected by the virus as older people are, they are very significant in spreading the virus to others. Like I’ve said before use common sense. I have run or walked 132.5 miles and biked over 200-in March so I’m certainly not hiding in my home, but I am keeping my distance from even friends I am going with trying not to get sick or make anyone else sick. As far as the eventual realities connected with covid-19-nobody knows and won’t for some time. So take it upon yourself to be smart

They have changed those fears. It’s nowhere near that. Like I said, the task force is walking that back and so are many others.

I heard that a couple of days ago on Fox News. You don’t hear that info on CNN or MSNBC. Anyway, this is great news and I knew Floyd was wrong about the mutation.
I disagree about medicine to treat the disease. Everyone trying the Malaria drug is getting better when used with azythromiocin and zinc. Even with just the Hydroxochloriquine people get better. Other methods and drugs are helping as well.

There is so much misinformation out there. mostly from a media hell bent on taking down a president. Most of America does not get it’s news from the Cnn’s and Fox’s of the world thank goodness

Heres a personal observation: China says they have conquered Covid with few new cases, Russia, little or none, Italy, Spain and NY are piling up dead people…and yet the rest of the world is hardly affected by it. Something does not jive here. The truth seems to be the many more are infected and not had much of a reaction to Covid so they go unreported.

Because it takes 2-14 days for an infected person to show outward signs, this thing should be blowing up EVERYWHERE and not just in NY and Caly………I can only assume 2 things. NY patients are either Immune system compromised, unlike the rest of the nation, or NY and Caly are Pining for attention and $$ by saying the bodies are piling up and alarming the hell out of the rest of us. By overhyping the truth, they get more $$ but sooner or later the rest of the country wises up, the stock market 1st and then everyone else.

If the CNN’s of the world are correct, we should be seeing millions of infected people and many thousands dying. Either Social distancing is working exxxxtremely well or we are being hyped.

Here is another article, that kind of debunks conspiracy theorist:

the article is specific, is this a lab created pandemic or was it animal to humans. Does not cover my question, " can it mutate and re-infect?"
The latest says that when they do have a vaccine, it will act as other corona virus’s, and have a single run.

Thanks for sharing and keep an open mind.

Thanks -that is a very enlightening article

Well you raise interesting questions and I would venture to say that social distancing is definitely helping, but we are probably being hyped also. In the US it’s not surprising that NY and California and Washington are being hit hard. They are the greatest virtual landing spots for travelers from foreign countries like China, so you would expect this. France and Italy are also in the same category. Iran would be a puzzle though. I can have an opinion and find opinions to back my logic in seconds, and so can everyone else, no matter if theirs are 180 degrees from mine. That is why I don’t pay much attention to people’s study posts as most of them are hypothetical, with good reason-we simply have not had the time for concrete answers. I do know the virus has started to hit the more rural areas, but so far very sporadic. I have family that are in the top echelons of hospitals and medicine-they all say the same thing-social distancing-so that’s what we are doing. Interesting that people are dying in Iran for drinking methanol as a preventative for the virus and more people may die from methanol poisoning than covid19. Anyway, I wish I knew the ins and outs of what’s happening and what’s going to happen-but I don’t, so I just try and live in an intelligent manner and hope for the best. It’s really all most of us can do. I also would encourage Floyd to eat his broccoli :broccoli: :wink::shushing_face::smirk::smiley::grinning::smile:

Definitely at some point-maybe even in a year it can possibly mutate-but put a big question mark next to definitely :wink:

I would expact NY and Caly to be in the lime light, They all believe that the world revolves around them, have so since there was a TV audience. Why isn’t Atlanta, Dallas and Maimi in the news and have a 24 hour Cuomo hot line? All international hubs as NY. Hmmmmmmmmm.

I’m calling it as I sees it

Not sure about those-it probably comes out of contact with China. I read today that Italy does more business with China than most other countries and has been advised against their trade infatuations withe “the red dragon”. As of yesterday 80000 infections and 8000 deaths or at an incredible 10 percent. This comes from the :Epoch: news letter. That’s all you can do “call it like u sees dem”

Nope… the science says one vaccine will work. That’s a great thing!

I wonder if it’s the salt water in large oceans? Washington, California and NewYork. I’m waiting for the Statue of Liberty to get a runny nose… all disaster movies smash the lady.

It is a great thing but the jury is still out-you can’t pick and choose what opinion fits your desires-there is plenty of work left to be done

It’s clear though how it affects liberals and conservatives. Conservatives want to work and not be shut-ins doing nothing. Liberals love this because they get free money and closer to their socialist utopian society.

Does anybody really believe the numbers of reported infections and deaths in China? I don’t for a minute. I also don’t trust numbers coming from the World Health Organization. You can’t trust any information coming from China and in general I don’t trust international organizations… China’s numbers haven’t moved much in weeks and they are putting out the narrative that they have things under control. I don’t believe it because they put great controls on the outflow of information. There were around 80k infections in late Feb. with around 3200 deaths and now about 81k infections and not many more deaths. I would suspect their numbers are far greater than that and far greater than ours. China is an extremely densely populated country.

CNN is never correct about anything and yet you go to an airport and it is the only network that is on in the terminals… You go to other public gathering places that broadcast news and it is nearly always CNN. So why do their ratings always stink? Does anybody actually watch CNN from the comfort of their own home?

If you remember in 2000 CNN nearly got Gore elected by calling Florida before the votes in the western panhandle were counted. Those people were in a the central time zone rather than the eastern time zone and voted overwhelmingly for Bush. CNN was premature and their call probably cost Bush some votes in Florida because some people hearing their garbage on TV probably decided to not vote. Roger Ailes of Fox actually said it was too early to call Florida and he was correct…

I would expect you are right
