No College Football. I've been wearing one for months. What say you?

    It's true that scientists are looking into people having immunity that were negative for antibodies. It makes sense with how well the northeast is doing after the terrible peak they had. With that being said, if the rest of the US catches up to the death rate in NY (160/100,000) it would lead to 528,000 deaths nationwide. Be careful what you wish for.

    Does anyone have any connections to people in the know as to whether there will be a season at all this year? Seeming less likely by the day

    Interesting that Covid hit at the end of Australia’s Summer. A country of 25 million only experienced 103 deaths to date. It’s now Winter in Brazil and deaths are soaring. The sun is a beautiful thing.

    Matching the rate of NY seems highly unlikely. We won’t come anywhere near to those numbers again. Population density like NY’s isn’t replicated anywhere else. The virus is not only weakening, it is also running out of nursing homes to raid.

    NYC experienced a very high rate of infection during the lockdown and even Cuomo questioned his decision to keep people confined, Plus he ordered nursing homes to accept infected covid patients, resulting in an enormous and unnecessary loss of life.

    It is also pretty interesting that various locales around the World locked down at different times, and not necessarily relative to the arrival of the virus. Some acted quickly. Some delayed their response. What was consistent was the corresponding spike in deaths in each locale resulted right after the people were told to stop their active lifestyles and forced to stay indoors, rather than get out in the sunshine.

    Vitamin D is essential for a healthy immune system. Your body produces it by being out in the sun’s rays. The sun is also a great sanitizer. NOW is when we need to see people out and about instead of shutting them up again until the cloudy days of Fall and Winter. If you keep everyone out of the sun all Summer then we are going to be more likely to see the second wave take a more serious toll, simply because staying inside has cumulatively unhealthy effects on the body.

    This is along the same lines as the research starting to show that a sedentary lifestyle is worse than smoking, diabetes, or heart disease. “Sitting is the new smoking.”

    It's more like the our Spring, right? Same as we had when things started.

    Unless there's a vaccination in the next 60 days then there won't be a normal season, if any at all. Just off the top of my head:

    1. What happens when 20 players on a team are infected right before a big game?
    2. How long will a player who had the virus have to wait to come back after testing negative?
    3. Who is going to be in charge of testing all these players? You can't just have schools police themselves.
    4. Do players that have come in contact with a player who's tested positive have to self-quarantine? For how long? How do you enforce that? How do you even practice without risking that you're exposing your entire team?

    Without accepting the fact that players will get sick and infect other players, I just don't see how it's going to happen short of a vaccine. But one thing is for certain; Athletic Directors and conference officials are getting paid a lot of money to try and figure that out and they're a lot smarter than I am.

    Don’t remember exactly I’m thinking like 85 during the day and cools off at night. So more like our current weather. If humidity helped the spread that would make hella sense in Brazil.
