: : : : : : : : : : Secondary consideration. God help us.
: : : : : : : : : :Mortality rate continues to drop as cases go up. The mortality rate has dropped incrementally every day in the U.S. and California since May 7th. If protecting lives is the goal, then things seems to be getting better. Hopefully everyone can understand these numbers but I'm guessing no one will feel safe until a vaccine is released.
: : : : : : : : :The majority of new cases are being found in people under 40 years old. The timing of this makes sense considering the the mass protests here in Southern CA a little over 4 weeks ago. Also, the spike of cases from last Thursday thru Sunday has dropped from 9k per day to 6k per day. Let's stay positive knowing mortality rates continue to drop and we're closer to a vaccine every day.
: : : : : : : Let’s not forget that everyone thought the Covid took a vacation and wasn’t around on Memorial Day weekend. People were every where acting foolish. If you want basketball though, Dinos Trigonis is still pimping kids out and hosting tourneys.
: : : : : : Even though the mortality rate is dropping, this is likely due to people having a higher resistance in the summer as opposed to winter. Brazil is going through their first winter and flu season with Covid-19, and their daily deaths have topped a thousand 23 times over the last six weeks.
: : : : : : Vaccines for respiratory illnesses that mutate constantly are wishful thinking. Most likely scenario, a shot is developed to at least take some of the "novelty" out of the virus, and give our immune systems a head start with antibodies. But small infections in the summer probably won't grant a person immunity in the fall, when the virus will be circulating in larger quantities and infecting people whose resistance is run down.
: : : : : : Even if the virus kills relatively very few during this summer, that will only lead to more complacency and more comparisons to the flu, and our guard goes down. If Fauci is right and new infections top 100k per day, God help us indeed. Basketball would be limited to a few poorly lit games in warehouses equipped with portable rims.
: : : : : : He doesn't know anything about sports. More than half of what he says is wrong ! Wake the hell up.
: : : : Fauci? What we gonna do? Chop him up like the Saudis do?

: : This mentality is exactly what has cause this to worsen! A bunch of yahoos think they know more than the experts or simply claim their rights have been violated and think it is ok to go to bars, beaches, gyms and Trump rallies and the number of cases increase. Listen to the experts even if it means “shelter in place” indefinitely and this thing will slow down so we can have basketball.
: Did you just say Trump rally and not BLM protest...stupid Moron.
Ten of thousands have demonstrated in close proximity , many without mask,many making contact, my adult daughter was out in support of one for BLM and supervised to see people high fiving.
After LA, reported a record 3,187 new coronavirus cases on Friday, the highest daily total since the start of the pandemic, and almost 10% of the nations tolal,according to health officials on Sunday.
Mayor Garcetti reversed course and explained that Dr. Barbara Ferrer a Democrat, Los Angeles County's director of public health, explained that the protests have added to the number of cases in the area. They can tell that by plotting out that new cases with the protest in the area, there is a direct correlation, even though medical personnel are forbidden in most areas to ask if the individual has attended a protest.
Garcetti said, "We do believe there is a connection, we don’t believe that everybody has been doing this safely." .
Even Governor Andrew Cuomo, told New Yorkers , “If you were at a protest, go get a test, please.”
So as long at protest are continuing in close proximity, we shouldn’t be surprise there is spread.
