COVID-19 Coronavirus Discussion Thread

This is going to be significant for the next little while.

I figure I might as well start a specific thread to discuss all things virus-related.

Keep you and your loved ones safe, everybody!

Jazz Donovan Mitchell confirmed as well. Gobert is such an idiot.

As per ESPN,

Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell has tested positive for the coronavirus, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mitchell becomes the second Jazz player to contract the virus, along with Rudy Gobert, sources told Wojnarowski. Gobert's diagnosis led to the postponement of Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jazz players are privately saying that Gobert showed a cavalier attitude toward the virus with his teammates in the locker room, touching them and their belongings.

Another example of Gobert's attitude stems from Monday's media availability, when he was seen touching every reporters' microphone at the end of his session.

I wonder if this explained why he only grabbed 4 rebounds against the Raptors the other day, even though he logged reasonable minutes and ended up getting ejected near the end of the game.

I hope this teaches him a good lesson.

I guess Covid-19 only affects star players. Still having a hard time believing this whole thing. Don’t hold it against me as I’ll hold my judgement.

I would avoid travel for next 5-6 months. By projections this thing is gonna continue to climb in infected globally for next 5-6 months before declining. If ya sick stay home. Its the ones with mild symptoms that are walking around and infecting people cuz they not staying home. Wash your hands often.

March break and travel or vacation to places but especially USA.

Most of the cases coming in now into Canada are people who went to USA. That includes california, seattle, colorado, Las vegas, and Hawaii.

They are not testing in the USA for what ever reason. As of date they have done 4000 tests since January and have 1300 cases. If you are not testing you do not know the scope of the spread of the virus in the population. If italy who thought it was just the flu also and basically ignored it has over 12000 cases now with a population of 60 million. My guess in the USA they probably have 60-70 thousand cases just walking around and infecting people with a population of 300 million.

Travel to USA right now with them not testing is as risky as travel to Italy I would say with the number of Canadians coming back and testing positive from the states. More Canadians tested positive from coming back from States than Italy so far.

As well if ya get get corona in the states and get sick, just the Corona Virus test will cost you 3800 dollars in the states for 1 test. If ya gotta go to ICU unit in USA for a week that will run ya 1 million dollars American.

The Covid 19 is times times worse than the flu. And although most will have no symptom to mild symptom, you are still contagious while ya have it. And 15-20 percent who get Covid 19 require ICU care, that means ICU and ventilator. Those who do not get this will likely die. So although the death rate is only 3 percent, its higher if hospitals are overloaded and you cannot get a ventilator. In italy they are overwhelmed at hospitals and the doctors have to decide who lives or dies cuz they dont have enough ventilators. So people that can be saved normally with ventilator are dying in Italy cuz they dont have enough ventilators. And Italy has one of the best medical systems in europe.

As well that it only affects the elderly I think its a myth. Yesterday 13 americans went on a ski trip to Italy ranging from age 40-82, and over a week all 13 got the virus and got sick. 4 of them are in ICU at hospital. And the least sick of the 13 is the 82 year old.

Dont travel to the USA, because they didnt test , they didnt identify and allowed it to community spread. My guess at moment they probably have 60-70 thousand cases of people walking around infecting the population. Like that lawyer in new york city that was sick for a month and went to work every day to manhattan. He got sick so went to hospital a week ago and got diagnosed with Covid 19 and is in serious condition. But because he went around infecting people so far there is over 100 people who got covid 19 that are directly related to him. Plus he went on while he was sick to Miami in that month. That town New Rochelle in new york that got contained cuz of the 100 people there testing positive is directly related to him.

More NCAA basketball cancellations.

They stopped St. John's vs. Creighton at halftime.
Apparently, over the sound system at MSG, they played "Another One Bites the Dust".

MEAC and MAAC games still on, as of now.
