Just more fear porn.............
College ball ain't happening this Fall. Our students have to go to classes. It's basically impossible logistically to make it work. Plus, the 2nd wave will hit Oct/Nov and put the kibash on things again.

The prudent thing to do is postpone things until the Spring. Hopefully, we'll have treatments, and/or a vaccine/cure by then. Or, hey, maybe it just simply disappears.

If we're lucky, NFL should be a go this Fall. No fans though. Given where we are now, I'll take it.

We're never going to have a cure or a vaccine due to the nature of the illness. We've already identified some effective treatments. Fewer people are dying and the infection rate has "skyrocketed" largely due to an increase in testing. Here in Oregon, for instance, I have personally monitored the state's official website almost daily for the past several months. The number of confirmed cases has doubled over the past several weeks, but so has the number of people being tested. The percentage of negative test results has remained constant at about 96.5%. That means only about 3.5% of those who are judged to be in need of testing are actually testing positive.

We were always expecting there to be more cases. The quarantine was meant to ensure that we didn't overwhelm our resources at a time when we did not know how bad it might be and we needed time to prepare to deal with it. Now we have more cases and a declining death rate, which is exactly what we need. Hurd immunity is the way out. Those at greatest risk should continue to quarantine, of course. But the rest of us need to get on with our lives, while continuing to take reasonable precautions.

The lockdown worked now it's we have to stay inside until there are zero cases or a vaccine..that was never the purpose... hospital admissions never got over 60k at one time, now that the virus has morphed, death rates and admission rates continue to fall 20200704_075810.jpg

Where do you come up with all this BS?

(1) Your suggestion that we'll never have a cure/vaccine isn't supported by any mainstream science organizations that I'm aware of. If you have a link to some quack, go ahead and post it;

(2) Your claim that the percentage of people testing positive isn't increasing is wrong regarding the states where CV19 is out of control (FL, TX, AZ, CA, etc.);

(3) Thus your claim that infection rate has skyrocketed largely due to an increase in testing is similarly wrong; and

(4) It's not (Jalen) "Hurd" immunity, it's Herd immunity, as in a bunch of cows in a field.

Look, man, I don't mean to beat up your post to be a jerk about it. Just do everyone a favor and stop spreading unsupported garbage to rile up folks. Let the scientists do their job (find a cure), politicians do their's (lie), and we do ours (wait).

Spring FB vs all the other sports that are in the Spring ? NCAA Basketball T - -- lots of games would end up not televised one way or the other

Wave? Has the first one ended?

People thought the Summer would kill this things for a bit. NOPE!

11,000 new cases just yesterday out here in California. And it is HOT out here. Has been for 6 weeks now.

Vaccine sure. Cure for a virus? Hasn’t happened for thousands of years.

What is your definition of “out of control” in Texas?

To date, we have 195,239 cases out of 2,371,709 people tested (8.2% positive cases) in TX. There have been 2,637 deaths from the positive cases (1.35% of cases or 0.0091% of the state population).

In Tennessee, there have been 51,431 cases out of 895,796 tested (or 5.7%). There have been 646 deaths from the positive cases (1.25% of cases or 0.0095% of the state population).

New Cases
There were 3,449 new TX cases and 1,291 new TN cases on July 5. If TN had the same population of TX, the new case number would have been 5,506 in TN.

Hospitalizations
Currently, there are 8,181 COVID patients in TX hospitals and 2,871 COVID patients in TN hospitals. If TN had the same population as TX, the hospitalization number would have been 12,244 in TN.
