Coronavirus and teams cancelling fans at spring game

Post by mike1126 » March 11th, 2020, 6:03 pm

It seems like more teams are not allowing fans to the spring game. March madness will be played without fans (that's the rumor). My concern is for the regular season. I wonder how season ticket sales are going? And do you think the aggies will be playing football with no fans in the seats?

After looking at the statistically small number of people who have actually died due to this Corona virus, the current domestic response seems way too aggressive.

Yup.


You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

It's been suspended. They can still pick up the season later on.

I know this is sandbox material, but consider one teacher gets sick but doesn't die. The school that teacher works at would likely need to close down. So 300 (400?) kids have to spend their day at home. Let's say one of those kids' parent is a police officer. That police officer now has to stay home to take care of their kid, meaning that another police officer has to fill in for them. That PD is now understaffed and spread thinner than it was before.

Same goes for hospitals, fire fighters, EMTs, doctor's offices.

The big problem of pandemics isn't just about who lives and dies, it's about the overall effect that it has on the economy and people at large.

That's just my opinion. I think that no fans at the NCAA tournament is the best of both worlds (we still get to have it, but we limit the risk of a wider infection), and the suspension of the NBA is due to the fact that there are now five or six teams that have had contact with Rudy that have since played games with five or six other teams and it can get real out of hand from there. Makes sense to suspend for at least two weeks to get things under control and hopefully start again then.

That's true. And people can get a vaccine for the flu. Hopefully we get one for corona within a year. Should have been working for one since the SARS outbreak in 2002, but I guess that's why hindsight is 20/20.

Yeah. But flu vaccines are only ~66% effective, and one of the largest reasons for that is that each bug each year has tweaked its dna a bit, so that we're looking at a novel flu virus each flu season. I haven't had the flu in over 10 years, and I'm in an at-risk demographic these days.

On the bright side, my daughters college ended classes today and will do distance learning. She planning to fly home with her roommate to Hawaii to finish the semester, long distance.

So do they get a rebate on the balance of their tuition for this semester? My granddaughter has one more lab to work through and then she can put a wrap on classes. Speaking of labs,,,what about an adjustment on semester lab fees?

I call it the Moronavirus. Just put the M where the C is. Why? Just go to the store, any store and go to the toilet paper or water aisle. Moronavirus.

I hear you 21, yet how many individual levels of the flu are there, and how many people just carry on though the flue season as they historically have? Like McAggie said, insert an "M" for the "C" and you the makings for another ORSON WELLS Invaders from Mars scenario.

On another note, I've decided to abstain from picking my nose and to quit licking door knobs.

I get what you guys are saying. And I may be wrong, but I think that carrying on as if nothing is wrong is selfish. Sure, the flu may not be treating me too bad and I can likely power through it as if nothing has happened, but not everyone is so lucky. Thankfully, with the flu, we have a vaccine that is about 66% effective meaning that there is a good amount of herd immunity so I may not infect anyone, and if I do it likely won't be as bad. But what about those that can't get the vaccine because of allergies or other negative reactions?

Covid is even worse than the flu. There is no vaccine and there is no herd immunity. So if I get it and go about business as usual, I'm likely going to give it to someone else and it will eventually kill someone.

I know that sounds drastic, and maybe it is, but I just can't help but think that it is worth it. Hopefully I'm wrong and it all blows over.

On the note of the grocery stores, I think there is always a sense of panic in these situations. You see it almost everywhere during random blizzards or natural disasters. Some of it is panic, but I think some of it is due to profiteers hoping to price gouge and make a buck. I just read this article and thought it was interesting. Hope the guy loses money in the end.

Well noted and solid advice 78. I wash my hands so much more now that dry hands are a problem for me. Also of note, I've quit licking door handles just to be on the safe side.
