I expect the panic to be over by then
The number of new cases in China has been dropping the past two-three weeks, so we should start seeing it drop by late spring.

I worry that the at Army game might be affected.
New York. Army cadets traveling in the summer. US kinda slow in reacting might result in some problems still being around in 6 months. I hope not

Yes I,m hoping so. We also are doing a lot more to prevent
the spread than China did. But my concern is, we must remove the travel ban sooner are later, & it coming back.

...my concern isn't with how it affects fans at sporting events as much as it is for toilet paper.

Went to Sam's Warehouse today to buy some,...

COMPLETELY SOLD OUT!!!

Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot?

I think it will be over by then, at least all the panic.

I listened to some guy talking this morning, a doctor that is supposed to be an expert tracking diseases and he said a couple interesting things, as far as China goes he said expect those numbers to go up because they have kept everything locked down but at some point people will be able to move and that will start the spread all over again.

the other thing he said was people are treating this like it's a blizzard where they all run out and buy bread and milk and in a couple days it's all past but instead of a blizzard we should think of it as winter that could last 3 to 6 months.

will football be effected? right now i'd say probably not, but I would have called anyone crazy a few days ago if they would have said concerts and sporting events would be canceled or played in front of empty seats, so who knows at this point.

all this talk of social distancing if the numbers go up in this region is there a point where you say 80 to 100 young men, coaches, trainers in close quarters for spring ball isn't the safest? There is already talk of online classes after spring break I suppose they think kids will go home and return with the virus, if you don't go to class can the team be together or not?

Don,t worry David ole fly will help you out. When I lived
in south La, when we were in the woods hunting or fishing
& the urge came on to poop we would just pull some of the
Spanish moss from a tree & use that to wipe. It really does work good. You just have to make sure there is no spiders in it. I can always call cousin Freddy to send
us some.

10 times deadlier than the flu, with vaccine 12 to 18 months away. Not a major killer but more a social interrupter to prevent the spread.
Add a little panic and you get toilet paper sold out. Just wash your hands and do all the things you need to, but save that big trip until the crazy slows down.
It is already causing big sports disruptions.
(And I am making 2 trips in the next six weeks to keep grandkids-that is in the need to category)

considering the crowds we've had for some games we may be ready for this.

seriously though, this is going to be strange, games with no fans, never thought i'd see this, think of the hit money wise lost ticket sales, concessions, hotels, restaurants ect….

If it behaves like other viruses, it will die down in the heat of the summer and then pick back up in the late fall.

Speculation is that one of the Utah Jazz tested positive for coronavirus. That is why the Thunder game was postponed. May have been a wise move.

Aho my Chinois brother. Not to worry, a good corn cob will make you forget about TP. Leaves will work in a pinch, but the corncob is the gold standard for those who dont have TP.............

...NBA SUSPENDS ENTIRE SEASON!
Economic impact be damned.

Will MLB follow suit?

Will the NHL?

Will the NCAA suspend the 2020 College Football season?

Say it ain't so! :shock:

Pretty sure at this point the OKLAHOMA Spring Game will be cancelled. :?

One of the more interesting events thus far in the 21st Century.

FEAR is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master!

10 times deadlier than the flu? Where did you get this information? From everything I have seen the flu is killing many times more than this new virus.

The above is hopefully the way it will playout. When the daily high temperatures rise at some point the virus will die. That has been the path previous Virus' has behaved. So, we can hope for "global warming" comes early this Spring.

Here is a graph that shows the ranking and other statistics of the highest 20 population countries.

The US is 20th in percent of the population in the number of cases. This pretty much indicates that the US has handled this virus has been pretty good.

Mathematics indicates that the percent of the US population that has contracted the virus is at 0.0004%.

I heard the same thing on the news last night people with this virus are 10 times more likely to die than those with the flu, which was a big jump up until yesterday the mortality rate numbers were flu at something like .05 percent and Corona at between 2 and 3 percent.

Actual doctors and specialist in infections diseases are saying that the fatality percentage of those getting the COVID-19 is higher than the flu. Exposure to flu is much higher right now, so a higher number die, but lower percentage. That is why it is important to limit exposures and wash hands.

...at this point my real concern is the economic impact.

As closures and cancellations continue to rise,
as the stock market continues to roll down hill like a boulder down the side of a mountain,
as people more & more decline to go out to eat, go to a movie, or take vacation trips,
the economic dominoes fall one after another in a chain of monetary destruction.

(i.e. Have a family member with a personal account in the stock market that had $15000 value in it 6 mos. ago, now has $800 in it.)

At the current pace, you reach a tipping point SOONER rather than later. Can't really extrapolate where this ends up, but you can clearly see the potential economic devastation. Country could become a nation of shut-ins.

I'm not an alarmist!

Happiness is a choice you make.

I have plenty of bullets & beans.

Most of us are going to be fine.

But, might be a completely different society than anyone could have imagined just 6 months ago.

The Chinese character for crisis is the same one for opportunity.

On this cheery note, have a great day!

I hate to bring this up but you all know there's no prevention or cure for the "common cold" or the "common flu", and thousands of people die from the flu each year even though we have annual flu vaccines, however in any given year it is only about 55% effective. This to will pass and be managed by our health professionals, the media needs to report more positive results and people need to stop buying truck loads of TP. I just hope they don't cancel fishing this year!
