NCAA Assessing How Covid-19 Might Impact Wrestling Championships

3 weeks ago Italy had 3 infected now they have over 10,000. They acted exactly as we are now. They went about their daily lives and few measures were taken. Now the country is in lockdown. There are not enough hospital beds, respirators, or staff and they have to ration care. A ER doc said they will no longer even assess patients who are over 65 or those with significant comorbidities.

At this point the majority of Americans will get infected but if it’s spread out the healthcare infrastructure can handle it. If a lot of people get infected at once, hospitals will be over run and the system will collapse. 

There is also a chance even the athletes do not compete. An athlete under scholarship or a coach under contract would basically be forced to go and could hold the NCAA and university responsible if infected. As soon as liability outweighs the $$$ the NCAA will cancel. This assumes they even have a choice.

 

 

30 - 60 days from now many will be wondering why so many took this so lightly.

There was no "swine flu" and yes folks did freak, the pork industry lost $1 billion due to freaking on this "swine" thing, just like covid-19 impact on Corona beer, plain silly.  It was H1N1 and even after experts corrected media that there was no connection to swine the media was still calling it "swine flu."

By your #s above, very very low mortality rate.  Also, R0 for H1N1 about 1.5 much lower than what currently seeing for covid-19.
