where are all the dead athletes across US sports? there must be a few hundred reported infections, and as far as i can tell zero reported deaths.
Maybe because athletes aren't 80 years old? I read about all these college football players who test positive but not yet, not once have I seen one that actually felt sick.

Is a pro football player good enough for you? Look up a few posts.

Of course young people in peak physical condition are going to fare much better against the virus.

I like that logic. It's a wonder why we have tests for cancer and HIV. What a waste.

At night office south. 8 patrons inside with only 1 following the mask mandate. Also had nearly as many people sitting outside. I guess they were the smartest and safest (yet smoking) as it was 111 Fahrenheit.

I didn't realize rona was fatal if untreated like cancer or HIV. Also didn't realize symptoms never develop in cancer or HIV.

Besides totally missing the point, it seems like you've been living under a rock. Many have died with treatment. Many more would have died without access to medical care. You learn something new everyday I guess.

There have been people who had no symptoms with HIV as well.

He did say he didn't realize these things. Though we know he was just being an idiot.

I heard an official from the Texas hospital system (I forget who or where I heard it, but it was the actual hospital admin speaking) saying that we are always going to have 90ish% usage of ICU, because that is our target usage. If we get more beds open than desired, we put the next worst patient from genpop into ICU. Simply the best use of resources.

I wonder about the threshold for hospitalization. Prairie's ordeal sounded just as bad if not worse than many who went to the H.

That's the variance in all this. It'll depend on bed availability and the person you're talking to.

There's probably 1 time that I should have gone to hospital - one night my O2 levels were mid 80s for more than an hour.

In better news, my doc is clearing me for "light" activity. So that's pretty sweet.

Would you guys play in a home game right now where you would project your hourly at $300/hr? It's going to be covid central though with people flying in from across the country to play in it.

I'd be willing to risk it. As long as you don't live with elderly relatives who'd be at risk, I wouldn't be passing that up.

Re: Self quarantine: the LLSNL Coronaids thread

It appears you are in florida. If the game is in florida my answer is no. If you are unlucky enough to need hospital care you most likely will have serious issues. I follow fla. hospitalization and icu numbers closely. Availability has plummetted in the last 2 days. Im talking from 1250 down to 859 icu beds - and the number of hospitals with less than 10 available has also gone up. It looks like it is going to get real nasty in terms of bed space. Really scary what the potential is in 2-4 weeks. Then again maybe this is all a hoax


the fla numbers woman who got canned for not altering data has her own site - go to pg 2 health/hospitals

Re: Self quarantine: the LLSNL Coronaids thread

If you are in good health yourself and don’t frequently interact with vulnerable populations you’d be crazy to turn that down. You’re probably more likely to be harmed on the drive to the game than from the virus if you’re young and healthy.

I'm behind on your pgc. Didn't realize you were crushing 10/25.

If it isn't raked and they are providing food and booze, you're more likely to be shot during the staged robbery than getting covid. Don't bring more than 2 buy ins.

Sure it's "best use of resources," but best use assumes a certain level of variance that seems to be really easy to hit during this pandemic. And when the ICU beds actually fill up, and then the acute-care beds fill up, and then general beds fill up, it becomes a **** show.

Quote:
In San Antonio, hospitals are reaching the limits of their surge capacity, Mayor Ron Nirenberg said Friday. In Mississippi, five of the state’s largest medical campuses have exhausted their ICU capacity. “Mississippi hospitals cannot take care of Mississippi patients,” state health officer Thomas Dobbs said Thursday. And in Austin, a front-line doctor in the county compared the increasing hospital load to the Titanic hitting an iceberg.

Re: Self quarantine: the LLSNL Coronaids thread

Catching this disease is really playing a spin and go with your life:

1-3% of dying, 10-20% chance of getting hospitalized, another undetermined x% of suffering wacky symptoms/being saddled with some sort of health issue for the rest of your life and a high probability (60%+) of getting a mild form of the disease.

But how much EV do you assign to losing half of your lung? or the sense of taste? Or suffering neurological symptoms?

Because the payoffs/costs are so high and the probability is low but undetermined, I think the play is to be as conservative as you can.
