I do not believe the 3.5 national value, who actually be that high here. If you notice, different parts of the world have much higher than 3.5 percent.

Any number higher than 1 is too many and we have already gone over that number in the US.

Thankfully, so far, with the 16+ cases in the DMV  do they expect any of those to die, nor has any.

Just because 30 million get the flu every year, mean, 30 million will get the coronavirus.

 

So far there have been 822 documented cases of the coronavirus in the United States causing 28 deaths.  That's a 3.4% mortality rate.  Since the flu and the coronavirus seem to be transmitted in much the same ways, I think it's prudent to plan for the worst and hope for the best.

They expect a lot more than 30 million to get it because unlike the Flu there is no vaccine and no one has immunity from getting it  previous years.   There is a higher transmission rate.  We are two weeks behind Italy. Just check out what is happening there and you will see two weeks into your future.

IF you are under 40 and in good health and you have no family that is over 50 or has high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, or any other serious problems you don't have much to worry about.  Those of us over 50 and those of us with close relatives in their 80's have more to worry about. 

Either way you slice it there will be a big recession.  No amount of tax cuts is going to solve it.  Who is going to have people renovating their home in the middle of pandemic?  I was going to have a kitchen remodel done but I will hold off on that now.  People won't be buying new cars.  No one going to concert or seeing sporting events.   People will lose their jobs.  This will effect almost everyone.

While I think those things are possible I think there's obviously still a lot we don't know about the virus.  From what I've read it's still possible that containment will mitigate the impact. From what I've read we don't know if new cases will be reduced as we head into spring.  This thread started by asking the question will "Could the Major League Season be cancelled or postponed."  I think it's definitely possible.  

In discussing this topic I think we have to be careful of straying too far into economics and government response, etc. because it starts to turn the thread political and that never works out.  Plus, there are plenty of other places we can do that.

It probably should go under the RANT thread?

No, it really she just be taken elsewhere as per the Hangout Rules and Policies thread under OH Information, Feedback and Help.  To wit:  

15.) No political or religious threads/discussions.

All University of MD schools have cancelled classes this week.  And will go remote after Spring break.  Loyola and Johns Hopkins go online only.

People say I am alarmist but evidently the colleges are more alarmist than me.

I think we are handling it more like Iran than South Korea.  I am not sure why the President is so much more interest in a stimulus package than working on containing the disease.  Stimulus package won't do anything for the economy if the country is closed like Italy is right now. 

I thought we had a policy against political posts.

I think you are just a stupid person, not alarmist.

I am sure that you understand and agree, Rick, but for those unfamiliar with the term...

Baltimore is NOT in the DMV.

The DMV is DC and its suburbs in Maryland and Virginia. It does not include Baltimore, the Eastern Shore or Western Maryland, nor most of Virginia.

It's very simple. Keep the politics or political responses out of it and address the facts.  Or really don't post in the thread. I'll have a quick draw.

"[The Seattle Times] BREAKING: To try to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, Gov. Jay Inslee is expected Wednesday to restrict gatherings of more than 250 people, including at sporting events and concerts."

Seems that the Mariners won't have fans at their games.

I would say fear-mongerer as well.

While watching the returns last night, they mentioned that the Governor of Michigan plans to do something similar. Though I haven’t been able to find a link.

The Seattle Dragons are scheduled to play this Friday.

Any idea how many people were in the stadium when the O’s played the White Sox?

    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
    • Oh man, there should definitely be a Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  That would be amazing!
    • This. I was always a MD Basketball fan first football fan second even though I like football more. Mostly because I grew up with Len Bias during the glory years of Lefty and then Gary Williams cam in and let them very relevent winning it all with an underdog squad. I could not be happier that Turgeon is gone as I've been off his bandwagon for a long time. He's an awful in game coach and his offense is stale, boring and basically resides around throwing up threes or letting his star be stars. Losing Wiggens and Morsell should have told Evans he needed to finally push him out the door, but now we have another lost year.  They need a splashy signing that will invigorate the recruiting and the program. I'll be honest, I tried watching a game or two but found myself disinterested and worse, I really cared less about the VT game where they just looked awful down the stretch. All I kept thinking to myself is more boring Turgeon ball. Either way, I wish there was some way to go back to the ACC but I doubt that will ever happen. MD football will always be irrelevant in the Big-10 because they will never be able to compete with Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State because they have huge packed stadiums every year and compete in major bowls while the Terps end up in Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  And yes, I had to look up a brand of douche! MD basketball should be good because of the local talent and facilities, but as was mentioned already, the college sports scene has changed with social media, one and done possibilities and the transfer pool. And that's doesn't even take into consideration the "likeness pay" is going to have. Both programs need big time coaches to ever have a chance but sadly, Evans is not concerned with making money rather than having success in the field/court.
    • I read them..but a lot of them don’t matter and/or don’t provide the advantage it used to.

    • If he is in a class of his own a la Adley was, let’s hope under slot isn’t a concern. I’m extremely excited to watch amateur ball this spring. 
    • That's a pretty broad brush to paint an entire generation. I just laid out all the reasons that makes UMD such an attractive job.  Seems like you're the one not paying attention. Gary Williams had MD as a top 10 program for over a decade.  It can surely be done again.
