    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    The NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) announced that Junior College football and any fall contact sport will be moved to the spring.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Portage Township school board voted to go virtual learning for the first nine weeks. That’s three in about 24 hours, all large districts. Have been hearing several local schools that are starting to get positive cases among their athletes. Schools started practice about a week ago. Know of four schools that have stopped practicing and another that will be doing so probably tomorrow.

    No problem. The CDC site says that the average lag time varies between 1 and 8 weeks and in the example I gave above, there were over 500 at the minimum that took longer. FWIW, the CDC doesn’t put out a yearly death total until around June of the following year because of the lag.

    The problem is you are comparing final death numbers to preliminary nimbers for 2020. Those monthly totals for the first six months will increase as data comes in to the CDC. Here is an article on that very topic. https://healthfeedback.org/claimreview/mortality-in-the-u-s-noticeably-increased-during-the-first-months-of-2020-compared-to-previous-years/ They cite an example where the week 10 only deaths measured in week 18 were 500 lower than they were listed in week 19. That’s not new deaths — those were simply ones that hadn’t been recorded and that was just an incredibly small sample.

    North Central and Indianapolis Washington have both announced they will be coming back in the fall virtually only.

    I'd be interested to see actual tracking data as opposed to a survey as the percentage of people who actually wear a mask into places like stores. For instance, my 74 father who has a history of pneumonia will look you in the eye and tell you he always wears a mask. Actual observation of him tells a different story. I doubt that when you go into places where masks are not mandated you are going to see 80+ percent of people wearing masks.

    What is so surreal to me right now is that in Indiana sports teams are practicing. Big difference is that high schools don't have the $ to test like college and football teams. I expect there will be a ripple effect and if college football is not a go, high school football will follow.

    That's what gets to me......people who wants things to return (like sports) but don't care about case spikes or wearing masks. The bottom line is that increased case numbers could very well remove some of the things that opened up or what we want to open up.

    Denmark. Germany. Finland. Maybe you want to be a defeatist and simply throw your hands up and say “well, people are going to die, so don’t do anything.”

    And even his crummy comparison fails his own test. His 'as soon as you open everything up, the cases spread'.....he mentioned that Illinois went to their final phase on 6/26. On May 26, their 7 day rolling average of cases was 1800+. Hasn't been at that point since despite more people being out with the weather and Memorial weekend and July 4th.....and throw in more tests.

    OT - Bloomington, a city on the brink?

    Serious question, not trying to be a pain, stuhoo — but you said that you took ‘from the I stated it’ that I meant arrested until trial from when I said detained....I didn’t mean that but I’m also not seeing how I even implied that. What we had were a bunch of drunk, violent bunch of guys looking to start trouble....that to me says they should have been detained in order to sober up and clear their heads.

    https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/arrest-vs-detention-how-tell-whether-you-ve-been-arrested-simply-detained.html My point was there was a group of men that were drunk and disorderly (on what sounds like public property) and acting violently....I don’t know why they would have not been detained to at least cook them off.

    I agree, although I think it may be that an effective vaccine gets figured out before that occurs.

    Quite a strawman argument. Not sure why you continue to get on people who are doing things to try to help slow the spread.

    New high number of cases by 10,000 over Wednesday’s high as we have topped 71,000...and it’s not just increased testing. Number of deaths increasing as well as the rolling seven day average of deaths has increased over 20% in just one week.
