Just because someone doesn’t die doesn’t mean this virus isn’t causing serious hospital stays with potential lifelong damage.

Edit - I think local lockdowns are better than statewide ones. I can get behind not doing statewide shutdowns anymore.
That is correct, but hospitals have not come close to being "overwhelmed" anywhere in the US at any point. In Houston, where much was made for a couple of days about the high % of ICU beds occupied, it turned out only 27% of them were for Covid, and the others were full largely because of people recovering in ICU from surgery as they are trying to catch up with the backlog of "elective" procedures banned during the lockdown. Keep in mind that "elective" does not mean minor. These include things like cancer and heart surgery and even transplants. Meanwhile, the Covid field hospital the Army Corps built, with 250 beds ready to go and the capacity to expand to 2000, sits vacant.

The fact that younger people are not as affected by this disease goes way beyond mortality rate. They don't get nearly as sick, and when hospitalization is required, it is generally brief.

I totally agree that decisions on shutdowns should be local.

The media is banking on the fact that most people don’t understand that hospitals and their ICUs typically run at 90-95% capacity.

But wouldn't that make a spike in bed usage even more noticeable?

Luckily Maryland has handled this thing really well but states like Airzona, California, Florida and Texas are seeintg large increases in hospitalizations which could overwhelm some systems in those states. Local health officials need to monitor that and make sound choices. Statewide mandates aren't the way to go though. That, I do agree with.

You are both wrong. The new mantra is “Stop The Spread”. “Flatten The Curve” is sooo April 2020 :lol:

I don't know if anyone has a clue as to what the ASUN will do with Fall sports, but I would not assume it will be cancelled because there is a Covid surge in Florida. If you look at the breakdown as to where the cases are, it is almost all in the greater Miami area, far away from the Florida ASUN schools. Jacksonville, Ft Meyer and Deland are in pretty good shape, and in fact so are pretty much all of the other areas in other states with ASUN schools.

That's almost 4 years old.
It is. But that’s not going to be relevant to some/many. Look at the reactions people are having over statements made longer ago than that. The difference is those people don’t have multiple National Championships as the Clemson football coach.

I didn’t know where else to put this and Dabo. It’s The Rona silly season so I figured this was the best place

Somethings up fellas. :dontgetit
Do you know that Liberty is testing players? Or are they just screening?

Also - as a private university, Liberty is not held to the same reporting standards as publics.
