    So, what benchmark should be used to determine when it is safe to open up the economy and lift the quarantine?

    The hospital my company is affiliated with, and most hospitals nationwide, we informed of the outbreak and led to believe they would be overrun like NYC.  They applied the NYC model to the entire country.  To date, our hospital has had a total of about nine Covid-19 patients and the county just reached 100 positive cases.  That is .5% of the counties population.  A "one-size fits all" model is not effective.  People have to take personal responsibility and make proper decisions.  

    Great point, the decisions should be made by state and local officials. One size doesn’t fit all!! GMG

    I don't know how we can trust the "experts" when their models have been overwhelmingly wrong. And before you say "yeah it's because we locked down" Then explain 2 things to me: Sweden and New York. Sweden didn't lock down and they're no worse off than any other country and NY has discovered that a majority of new cases are coming from people that are home. The point being....destroying our country is not necessarily stopping this virus.

    While data shows the coronavirus is on the decline in New York, the new survey results appear to clash with Cuomo’s prior assurances that isolation can reliably prevent transmission.

    One reason why the models failed is that they – just like most countries’ politicians – underestimated how millions of people spontaneously adapt to new circumstances. They only thought in terms of lockdowns vs business as usual, but failed to consider a third option: that people engage in social distancing voluntarily when they realise lives are at stake and when authorities recommend them to do so.

    If you're going to use anecdotal evidence from Ghana as a way to convince people we need to continue to shut down our country you have to use anecdotal evidence from Sweden as well. 

     

    I'm not saying we don't take the virus seriously....I'm saying the degree in which we are is excessive. My mom has pre existing conditions....I would take precautions before I went to her house and she would do the same. But let me decide how best to take care of my family. 

     

    Because most scientists error on the side of caution. Politicians politic.

    I don't think we can wait for a vaccine. It's very difficult to find a vaccine for a virus. We have been trying to find a vaccine for HIV for almost 40 years and still don't have one. I do not think people will stand for living in fear until a vaccine comes.

    I agree. Can you have college athletics without all the students being on campus? I don’t think so. This will be the measuring point.

    Why would any conference add teams right now? I don’t see any changes happening. 

    Only if you are consolidating teams regionally does it make sense to reduce cost.  Teams on the bubble financially are going to have to make a move Tulsa La Monroe and others. Revenue and Revenue sharing is going to drop dramatically In all sports. If we can’t get into the AAC then combining with SB would make sense. Set up an East and West Div along with a championship game. GMG
