Is there an end in sight?

Recommended Posts

I was hoping someone with more knowledge than me could shed some light on when sports might resume? Without political or religious opinions. We have an abundance those!

As far as high school goes, I’m hoping football practice starts in August as usual. That’s the earliest I see high school athletics returning.

Surely the Chinese Virus will be gone by then.

I have a hard time seeing us back on the playing field for any sports this spring/summer.  I echo the sentiment above that I just hope we are able to start practicing on time in August.

Our basketball boys were on the court warming up for state when the cancelation came. And now we have lost baseball! Truly tough pills to swallow!

I'm starting to worry about football!

I hope you’re right. I think it will, but if i had said at the beginning of the month that we’d be canceling the state basketball tournament as well as all spring sports, not to mention the rest of the school year, I would’ve been laughed off of SDC.

I hope we can at least resume lifting in late June/July.

I believe the spring sports won’t happen as a precaution. Shame for the Seniors. Prom and Graduation ceremony will probably be out of the question as well. In Texas the death toll isn’t as bad, so being cautious is top priority.

China was shut down about 3-4 months? US started trickling recommendations to stay in as much as possible in early March? I hope the US would be back open for business by the start of fall practice in August. And this may be me just trying to make myself happy and skew things for my justification. 🥺

I truly believe we will be fine by August, but the longer this thing drags out now the more pessimistic I become.  While we may be fine in August, imagine how behind everyone is going to be with kids having to do their own workouts, not being able to coach them up on scheme, etc.  Could be an interesting fall! 

Everyone stay safe!

I think we can all agree that selfishly we want all these sports back and want them to happen, but I suppose if nothing else this whole thing has given more perspective to what is truly important. There are so much bigger things in life. God Bless you all

79 infected and only 7 deaths.  That's less than 1% of those infected, and only 0.000268 % of the population is infected.  Do you actually think it's top priority when it effects so extremely small of a percentage of our population ?

Those numbers have gone up just in the past hour. And they’ll continue to rise as more test are made available.

The fatality rate isn't nearly as bad as first thought. With treatments of the virus now taking place and the youth seemingly having little symptoms I firmly believe things will open sooner than later. Certain parts of the country are gonna take longer than others to get better. The next two weeks will be critical to the final outcome for us. As long as the treatments have positive results and we practice social distancing to curb the rate of the spread then I am optimistic

I work for Christus....who is giving us daily updates from corporate and the CDC.

And most of y'all know what a huge sports fan I am..... I'm really struggling.

But everything we are hearing..... this is still just getting started according to virologists.  We are still in the EARLY stages.

532 deaths in the US.... seems like a small number until it's someone you know/love.  It was just 130 just a week ago.  The growth is expected to be exponential.  That's scary.  Esp when we have large swaths of the population not heeding the warnings and precautions.  We have no idea how many ppl are walking around infected and not even know it.

 They are saying 8-10 weeks before we see this slow down.  That's late May/early June.  And a downward trend coupled with no idea where the infection count is at that point (and the death toll) still won't be a green light for UIL, NBA, NHL, or MLB to resume.

How late can they wait to finish those seasons?  Does the late finish affect the 2020-2021 season?

It's a mess.

But TBH.... my great love for sports pales in comparison to how I feel about this.  I'm a healthcare worker.... and if we can prevent ONE SINGLE DEATH by putting life on hold.... it's worth it.  And we all would probably agree it is saving MUCH more than 1.  

Stay safe.... stay healthy.

I'm in healthcare too.   This is just starting.   It is gonna come in waves as different sectors of the country get "seeded" and then 10-14 days later it takes off. Its gonna be a rough summer.  Everybody stay safe.....and take this seriously

500 deaths IS a small number. 

1.25 million per year, or approximately 3200 per day killed in us in car crashes.

Should we outlaw cars and auto travel? 

Opioid deaths are around 130 per day. Should we outlaw pain meds? 

Diabetes and other metabolic diseases - countless millions per year. Are we shutting down the Coke deliveries? 

 

All of those numbers are insignificant until you know one of them too.  

Huge overreaction in my book.  The elderly and the sick die in large numbers due to Flu, colds, GI bugs, etc.... We owe it to them to avoid all of these exposures as best we can, but CV-19 isn't that special or different.

I fail to see the correlations. 

Car crashes, opiates, and metabolic diseases aren’t contagious.  You can’t catch them by simply sharing a space with someone that has them.   You don’t get any of those because you touched a surface an infected person did.  You don’t inhale any of those conditions. 

You CAN help prevent diabetes by controlling your blood pressure, eating right, exercising. 

You CAN help prevent opiate abuse by correcting what’s causing the pain (surgery, rehab, homeopathic treatments).  

Not even going to mention the car crashes as that’s not even a medical condition.  But yes... there are ways to reduce those too  

What credentials do you have to decide what’s an overreaction?   Med school?  Statistician?  Epidemiologist?  Or because you read it on Briebart, Rush Limbaugh said so, or perhaps Fox?

This isn’t an American problem.   It’s a worldwide problem that is eliciting a similar response worldwide.  Americans aren’t being asked to do anything outrageous that other countries are asking of their citizens. 

Exactly what sinister agenda do you think virologists, epidemic specialists, and other doctors aground they world have other than to prevent further infection?  What’s so meanacing about that? 

Do you think any of those International disease experts care what political posturing is currently happening in the US????  Ridiculous  

Its still accelerating.  We were at 130 deaths a week ago. 600 this week.  How many have to die before we take this seriously, pray tell?  

What number Of deaths in your Christian view is OK before we inconvenience life in any way?  10,000?  100,000?  1,000,000? 

What’s the golden number for your compassion to kick in?  Your concern?  Raise an eyebrow?  I’m curious to know. 

I’m willing to bet it’s 1 more death than we have now if that 1 was your spouse, parent, child, family member, friend, neighbor. 

Then again.... probably not.
