Coronavirus
« on: March 13, 2020, 11:19:28 AM »
Has any leagues been cancelled that some of you bowl in due to the Coronavirus ? A tournament I was going to bowl in pulled the plug. I'm in Ohio where mass gatherings of 100 or more are prohibited. Things are changing daily so it could be an adjustment after the 2 p.m. press conference.

IOC just announced the Summer Olympics have been at least postponed.

I'm guessing at this time, there won't be a USBC Open in 2020.
Canada and Australia have parted ways with the Olympics this summer of 2020. I'm guessing more will follow suit. Sure won't be the Olympics that people are used to if it even survives.

Countries will force their hand and theyíll have no choice but to cancel.

Funny when I said this a few weeks a certain ropedick that frequents this site thought I was wrong. Yet, here we are. EVERYONE is wrong and he and his flawed ďnumbersĒ are right.


I said it was the trendy thing to do so USBC Open should be safe.  I used the Joe Rogan show expert numbers and it appears he over shot it. Shocker.  Sorry your expert was wrong

Michigan is going to announce shelter in place/ stay at home at either 11am or 11:30am today.

Just confirmed a half hr, or so wow, this is surreal to say the least.

Welcome to the club!

We were "recommended" to shelter in place in Sacramento County 2 days after the bay area imposed it. Last week, California was shelter-in-place statewide. It's gonna feel eerie for a while.

think about it this way: As you already heard about Nevada being shelter-in-place, Gov. Sisolak here now has ordered the LEOs to enforce all non-essential businesses to close. And on top of that, an air traffic controller at McCarran International in Vegas tested positive for it. The entire tower is shut down, and flights are limited to 6-8 in and out every hour.

when was the last time you saw Las Vegas looking like a ghost town?

BL.


Thatís terrible man; Be safe, and my best wishes to you; And yes, I could never imagine Vegas ever being a naked ghost time, ever.

I work in healthcare in direct patient care. I, and everyone here including the doctors I have talked to all thought this was blown out of proportion until recently. We were all wrong. Sure, a vast majority of people will have no lasting effects, but the fact of the matter is that we donít have the capacity to handle how severe this could be. And with the risk of permanent lung damage, it is nothing to joke about. Iím not worried about myself catching it, but those I care about that are immunocompromised I am very worried about, and I honestly hope they shit down the entire US and only let the necessary people out until this all blows over.

Yeah, shut down the economy.

Throw millions of people out of work.
Put businesses out of business - the longer this goes on, the fewer will be back.
Collapse the stock mark.
Induce wide spread stress related illness.
Create panic and artificial scarcity

How many people are going to loose their homes? How many homeless is this going to create?

The data we have is junk, full of Selection bias .
Coronavirus is a common cold virus known for decades. No one ever tested it before, b/c no one ever cared.
Running PCR tests for a common cold virus and then blaming it for illness, is stupid and causality has not been established.
If we look at numbers of poor in poor health who die of flu and cold related illnesses each years, these is no pandemic.
If no one on China set off a panic, nothing would have even been noticed.

This is mass insanity. and anyone who thinks the whole country is shut down and stock market crashed an millions who live paycheck to paycheck in a dire financial panic - all b/c some people didn't want to run out of ventilators for a few elderly - well if you think that then you are delusional.

The illness and death caused by shutdown will far exceed anything that some coronavirus could possibly cause.

This is media induced hysteria.

Amazing, all the worlds medical experts need to be introduced to you. With your amazing knowledge on all things medical, how do you have time to inform us lowly boos on a bowling forum site?

Grow up.

I have to be very careful in what I say as 98% of the bowlers and residents around here are probably in that video, so all I can safely say is this...

The elderly have less of a right to the rest of their life. Got it.

I agree there is media induced hysteria. Thatís how the media makes money from a bad situation.

The corona virus has been around for decades... eh there is some truth to that, but it is false in the way you believe this. The corona virus is a type of virus. Covid-19 is a particular strain that was ever created or evolved which is more infectious and deadly than others in the past.

The stock market will not collapse. It will rebound, but it may take a couple years. In fact, historically it has boomed when it comes back.

If the government can get their shit together (I know, Iím laughing too) on this support bill, money may be tight for a while, but everyone will make it through.

As for the rest of your argument that is not backed up by the correct facts... my thumbs are getting tired from refuting your claims. It is not just some common cold. Yeah the flu is severe. Iíll give you that. But neither of them cause permanent lung damage in 20 year old people with healthy lungs.

They finally cancelled the balance of the Mixed Tournament and all of the Youth, Womenís and the Open Tournament in South Dakota.  Our teams were scheduled to bowl last weekend and we decided we would not bowl but they went ahead and held it for teams that wanted to bowl.
