Apparently a number of athletes have had heart damage from the virus.  While it's normally temporary, it does carry elevated risk until it heals.  And the story is the colleges weren't comfortable putting athletes in harm's way.

But it begs the question I keep asking - if that's the case, then how do you justify having ANY kids on campus...to go to virtual classes?!?

Is this a new form of myocarditis or similar to the past myocarditis that has always been caused by viruses?

COVID effects the young at way to high of a percentage, society doesn't want football to exist without a vaccine, the numbers for 18-30 year olds having critical exposure is way too high, don't see how to expect football ever again, influenza also comes every year and people get sick, with most Americans being  metabolically broken, we can't risk anything anymore

Is this fourth wave of virus worse than the first three?

Organizations will soon realize the jury pool has seen way to much mass media and decide the courts will not be favorable for participation in team sports, not worth the risk

I’m not counting on winning the division. The Twins are good.

I feel the team needs to finish in top 6 to avoid NYY & MIN in the first round

Dewine should have made an appointment, then not taken the the test, then get a call later that his test was positive despite not taking the test to inflate the numbers

Since I was already exposed to the virus for weeks prior to the government shut down in mid-March, I'll wait as long as possible to avoid side effects

Both. 

Deaths, people in the hospital, and cases are down yes. Good news and I hope it continues to go down. 

 However, we are still above 1000 deaths a day and over 160k in deaths. 

I would have thought it would have been higher than half the number of deaths due to heart disease per day

It's probably a chemical explosion like China had a few years ago. 

Ammonium nitrate was the cause in that one. Wouldn't surprise me if it were something similar this go around.


I think the China one was way worse than this one, but it's hard to say. The Chinese one happened in the middle of the night and it was dark. They claimed 173 fatalities in theirs.


Bingo

I was more so thinking "mandate" as in they can't force anyone to take it.  I did not think about the schools/businesses/etc angle. 

If anyone is familiar with HIPAA, could businesses or public services (i.e. metro) require people to provide proof they have the vaccine? 

If you want to be able to stand in line to obtain your government bread, you better be able to show your documents that you had the vaccine

Having a vaccine is all well and good but we have flattened the curve and need to get back at it fully.


We will see a vaccine around November 4th

Agree on that date for an an announcement, then on January 21st, the terms are set for the unproven mandatory vaccine

Great News All! The Serum Institute is shipping the unproven vaccine with unknown side effects so the .0003 (or .03%) can be protected!!!

At some point, we are going to have to accept the risks to society of COVID - much like we do many other things.  No one wants anyone to die.  But the human condition is such that there are going to be things that come along and get some of us.  But we collectively weigh the cost / benefit of avoiding said risk.  In the case of COVID, the costs of keeping kids out of school is going to cost our society immesurably for years to come.  Online learning is not even close to an adequate substitute - even when carried out flawlessly (which it is not).  We are punishing our children by not only retarding their educational progress,  but by showing them the example of not fighting through something that is challenging, yes, but not something we can work through collectively.


Don't we need an unproven vaccine that makes some software billionaire even more rich to protect the .04% ( or .0004 for those who don't understand percentages) that do not recover because they have underlying conditions?   I'm sure the mental health of all of our youth is just fine because of this

Idk. I really think until the vaccine is rolling out, how does life go on. It’s good and fine that people are asymptomatic while having it, but you can’t really tell them to keep going about life normal with it. Odds are they’ll eventually give it to someone who won’t be fine.

I really hope that all these schools closing cause the teachers unions to lose power.  There are plenty of us back doing our jobs and working closely around others.  You know what?  That's life - that's part of providing for others.  Are there risks in that?  Sure.  Specifically from COVID they are very, very small.  Life ain't risk free though.  No one is asking teachers to make any greater a sacrifice than many, many other professions have been making these months.

Toledo Public does not think so.  Society waiting on this vaccine that will have no side effects whatsoever to reduce the risk from that 99.96% recovery rate.  Can't have the .04% non-recoverable, push the vaccine now, someone needs to make money off of this
