The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

As the unfortunate news comes that an 82 yo NYC woman has succumbed to #Coronavirus #Covid19, I want to briefly revisit issue of case fatality rate (CFR). We STILL (even two weeks later) do not know.

Let's look at #NYState. It is one of the largest outbreaks. Today is 1st death from over 400 cases (0.2% CFR). The CFR may grow, as some active patients might worsen; but it is also a reflection that the outbreak occurred in a younger and healthier community, generally. 2/x
Much like Westchester, above, where the superspreading mostly occurred in NYS, there is similar concentrated outbreak among employees/visitors/contacts of Biogen, MOSTLY in #Massachusetts. NO deaths. And relatively few hospitalized. 3/x
