Corona Virus

What's on your mind?

This is why they shut things down. Kids gets an autograph, gets the virus- who else did they have contact with? How many over 60? The kid will be fine, but did he have contact with Grandma and Grandpa?

I love softball, I love sports- in fact I love going to restaurants and bars, but it is going to make sense to take a break from all of them until this passes

It sucks and I feel bad for the athletes, but I feel worse that people might wind up in an ICU(or worse there is no room an Drs have to make some nasty triage decisions- like Italy)


Well said!

OK I really feel like I've got my finger on the pulse of this thread so I'm going with this softball related observation:
The first 30 days after people return to work there will be a spike in divorces.

Any word from PGF or TCS as far as spring season possibly being over and cancelling PGF nationals? There has to be some sort of drop dead date. Teams might not even be able to practice till May or June at this rate...most schools are all cancelled till May and rumor is the school year could be over soon.

PGF won't have enough weekends to catch up on qualifiers either.

I don't see them having a tournament especially with the Olympics pushed out a year. Just not enough time to get things together once things start back up. Maybe a small invitational, but I doubt it.

A few other things that may change is in the supply chain. There were many local supermarkets that were better supplied for food than their larger chain competitors. That was because they used more local suppliers for meats and produce. I think you will also see more manufacturing move closer to markets. Some "just in time" supply chains may go back to more traditional(less efficient) warehousing. I think you will see countries(& companies) stockpiling and setting up strategic reserves of materials and equiptment. Hopefully they will look at other potential problems and not try to prepare for the last war.

Not that I think we should all become super preppers- I think we have all learned that it is not a bad idea to have a decent reserve supply of key items just in case

I think the real question is if the president does open the country up and declares victory over the Corona Virus. Is everyone going to go back to normal? or will states and local govt stay at home?

I think most Americans will get COVID 19, and it will mutate to a less lethal strain as it permeates society. Being healthy will be part of life, just like in "Future Dystopian" movies where everyone is fit and thin.
A vaccine will be developed, but you will still have those anti-vaxers out there, not herd-immunizing and affecting businesses and schools.

Here in California we always talk about being prepared for an earthquake even have it taught in our schools.....um..not many are prepared as shown this past few weeks. I agree with you JR hopefully this will teach everyone to be prepared next time, but I am not so sure.
