1/6 SPORTS ARE NOT A PRIMARY VECTOR OF COVID-19

Somehow it has still not gotten through to journalists and politicians that athletic competition rarely spreads CV19.

This has been shown at practices, in games, and even in the stands.

2/6 Across professional sports, @williamfleitch notes:
“...there hasn’t been a single documented instance of a player getting COVID from an on-field event.”

“…leagues are starting to... [put] spectators in seats. This hasn’t led to any mass outbreaks...”

3/6 At the H.S. level, even indoor, contact sports like basketball saw almost no issues with practices.

A survey in Illinois indicated that during fall practices only 9% of 546 schools had a CV19 case and only 0.3% had more than 2 players get CV19.

There R 104 MILLION people in the US under the age of 25.

29,486 in this age group died from Feb through July.

270 of those deaths are Coronavirus.

We don’t stop life for 104 MILLION people due to 29,486 deaths. Don’t stop it for 270. It creates death via abuse, ODs, suicides.
Mid March to mid July, there were FIFTY THOUSAND non-Covid deaths in the US above usual levels!

Cause?

You tell me!

Healthcare spending in the US April-June was 24.3% lower than April-June 2019 despite Covid spending.

Context: Economy overall was down 9.54%
