CoronaVirus - Cancelling or moving Olympic Games

Recommended Posts

Cancelled fans from NCAA's wonder if they'll do the same for Trials.

Due to concerns over the spread of coronavirus, NCAA championship events, including the NCAA wrestling championships in all three divisions, will take place with no fans. Only essential staff, athletes and coaches will be able to attend.

@Jaroslav Hasek I am afraid it's game over.  Olympics will be postponed.

I hope I'm wrong!

NBA just suspended it's season. not looking good for the Olympics at the moment. I definitely underestimated this virus.

You and many others, including those who actually could have done something to stop it. It was probably because of the rampant "this is no worse than the flu" misinformation that was spreading around via the government and media. And what's sad is just how predictable this was-anybody with a basic understanding of immunology understands the difference between seasonal flu and a recombined virus.

stop what?
the unstoppable?
and in a few months it will be an afterthought regardless...
that is the point... 
but, agendas and all that...
100%... what is it 2% fatality rate? You mean I only have a 98% chance of survival? ... this flu is blown so far out of proportion

the fatality rate is the best statistic to spread fear and hysteria... also the most overblown for obvious reasons...

but, again...

agendas...

There are more things…likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality.

Its not a matter guaranteed death when contracting it. It's a matter of contracting it and giving it to a others or loved ones who (elderly, sickly, etc...) are vulnerable to dieing from it.

would i?

i am... i booked this this morning... without one concern at all...

no one can run from this virus... just like every other air born virus... eventually 99% of us will have this in our bodies and it has already proven to be very small concern for anyone healthy... 

so, the rest of you run and hide and still get the sniffles... i'll take my kid to washington to qualify for fargo and have a great time doing it...

airborne may be a strong word and used by me in layman terms... if someone sneezes from 10ft away and their infected mucous flies through the air and gets into poor little johnny, i kinda call that airborne...

my sincerest of apologies...

my point stands... you guys stay home and still get it eventually... me and mine will continue to live our lives without any unnecessary stress...

I am sharing this from a Facebook posts by someone in Italy

I am writing to you from Bergamo, Italy, at the heart of the coronavirus crisis. The news media in the US has not captured the severity of what is happening here. I am writing this post because each of you, today, not the government, not the school district, not the mayor, each individual citizen has the chance, today to take actions that will deter the Italian situation from becoming your own country’s reality. The only way to stop this virus is to limit contagion. And the only way to limit contagion is for millions of people to change their behavior today.

If you are in Europe or the US you are weeks away from where we are today in Italy.

I can hear you now. “It’s just a flu. It only affects old people with preconditions”

There are 2 reasons why Coronavirus has brought Italy to it’s knees. First it is a flu is devastating when people get really sick they need weeks of ICU – and, second, because of how fast and effectively it spreads. There is 2 week incubation period and many who have it never show symptoms.

When Prime Minister Conte announced last night that the entire country, 60 million people, would go on lock down, the line that struck me most was “there is no more time.” Because to be clear, this national lock down, is a hail mary. What he means is that if the numbers of contagion do not start to go down, the system, Italy, will collapse.

Why? Today the ICUs in Lombardy are at capacity – more than capacity. They have begun to put ICU units in the hallways. If the numbers do not go down, the growth rate of contagion tells us that there will be thousands of people who in a matter of a week? two weeks? who will need care. What will happen when there are 100, or a 1000 people who need the hospital and only a few ICU places left?

On Monday a doctor wrote in the paper that they have begun to have to decide who lives and who dies when the patients show up in the emergency room, like what is done in war. This will only get worse.

There are a finite number of drs, nurses, medical staff and they are getting the virus. They have also been working non-stop, non-stop for days and days. What happens when the drs, nurses and medical staff are simply not able to care for the patients, when they are not there?

And finally for those who say that this is just something that happens to old people, starting yesterday the hospitals are reporting that younger and younger patients – 40, 45, 18, are coming in for treatment.

You have a chance to make a difference and stop the spread in your country. Push for the entire office to work at home today, cancel birthday parties, and other gatherings, stay home as much as you can. If you have a fever, any fever, stay home. Push for school closures, now. Anything you can do to stop the spread, because it is spreading in your communities – there is a two week incubation period – and if you do these things now you can buy your medical system time.

And for those who say it is not possible to close the schools, and do all these other things, locking down Italy was beyond anyone’s imagination a week ago.

Soon you will not have a choice, so do what you can now.

The NBA, NHL, and MLS suspended their season, NCAA cancelled all winter and spring sports including the biggest money maker of them all the Final 4, the PGA canceled the Players Championship after the first round and all tournaments until April, and you're not concerned that those events might not happen?

Edit: And if you think those events only got canceled because of ESPN, scroll down to "Events" on this link and check out all the things that say cancelled - https://www.washingtonstatewrestling.com/page/show/1514882-calendar
