I have always thought that the virus would not be able to handle the heat and humidity because all the others that are like it have never been able to.I have linked a couple of articles already talking about this but this came from the Presidential briefing yesterday where this gentleman perform studies on how the virus would react to heat. The results were incredible and what you have to keep in mind is the temperatures listed in his slides are nowhere near as hot as it will get in the summer and the humidity(which is the real demon to the virus) listed is way low so I think going forward ,this is incredible news, and gives us a shot at playing in the fall. You have to go about 18 minutes into the briefing to hear him start talking about it.
Hope is good.
youdaman, you’ve been saying that all along. It looks like you might be right. I sure hope so.
We were in the 90’s here in Florida in mid March but okaay…
Yeah it will be 90+ here in Mississippi from June-September, humidity anywhere from 70-80% the humidity is what gets the virus because the particles don’t travel as far in the air
Well if this virus can make it through the summer heat especially in the south then more power to it because it will be the first one to ever have ever accomplish that.it’s a combination of both heat and humidity but if you do some studying on its you see that humidity is the one that really stymies it because the particles cannot travel as far in the air,which makes perfect sense…
I really believe we have to play in the fall or we won’t play at all…the springtime proposition to me is crazy because you’re starting in February and March which is right in the middle of a peak resurgence of the virus and on top of that it would just totally change college football too much.so let’s hope and pray that this virus dies out like the others half and the powers-that-be will see the opportunity that we probably can play in the fall with some tweaks and how the attendance is done
That has always been the thinking. That is why they are saying a second wave of the virus will come in the Fall. Meaning the summer heat will kill it but as temperatures cool off, here it comes again, That does not sound good for Football in the Fall.
As far as the high temperature conclusion, they think in countries like India, number of cases per a million of population is one of the lowest because they are experiencing unusually hotter months. But they were cautioning that citizens of India get a TB shot at birth and there is some research that shows it fights off this virus. So, they are not sure how much of it is high temperatures and how much is the TB shot.
No doubt that the heat and humidity along with somehow applying ultraviolet light and taking Lysol internally will be exactly what is needed to treat this virus.
When they say come back in the fall I I think it would be very late in the fall.,this did not really start until late November December and didn’t really start exploding until February and March. I think if we can start on time we have a great shot of getting the season in. But to start even in October I have seen some mention would put you playing the last month of the season in December and you run the risk of the virus. This will simply be a risk vs reward decision. I think the numbers will be way down by the end of July and I do believe students can come back to class… I’m not so sure we can have full attendance at football games though. They’re going to have to come up with some way to cut attendance in half so there can be spacing. But we will see
The key is that you “think” and I generally defer to those who “know” and that’s probably the way I’ll continue. I do not argue any of your points, just like I don’t argue those that are still scared of it. I don’t see anyone out there who says they “know” yet. And, that will probably be the case until they “know” they have a vaccine.
Clay has the correct assessment. We all want some sort of legit, scientifically supported breakthrough. Science leads the breakthrough, not the opposite. I can only imagine the news coverage when something legit is created and verified.
I have a feeling Clay that until a vaccine is found, those over 65 (maybe over 60) are not going to attend any large gatherings other than Church. But Youdaman’s glass-half-full take has some merit.
I certainly don’t know, all I’m going on is what has been proven about these type viruses in the past this is a new type virus so time will certainly tell for sure.
I was just sharing some scientific data that was tested and had success with it.
This I do know one thing…you don’t friggin want it. My wife and I both had it in mid March and are lucky to be here to talk about it. I am still trying to get my lungs clear. I had a heart attack 12 years ago and had to be revived twice. This virus caused me the most profound fatigue I have ever experienced, including that. I’m in my mid 60s and don’t want any part of it again. I donated and bought my tickets this year but will not be attending till there is a vaccine. This is nothing to mess with I promise. Everyone needs to consider what’s best for the players and the fans. I don’t think we have that knowledge right now. We need to be safe. Go Hogs!!
I agree, I’ve had a couple of friends go through it, what’s meant to happen will definitely happen and I’m okay with that.
Me too. I’m just suggesting to tread carefully.
When does normal life begin if science is unable to come up with a vaccine for the Wuhan-Chinese Corona Virus.
We don’t have a vaccine for H1N1, HIV or many other strands of the Corona Virus.
Unfortunately, we will have to adapt and learn how to live with this virus as we do many others every year.
The White House press core would ask what took so long to create the vaccine and when will 330 million doses be available?
They would also probably ask how certain the scientists are that this vaccine will actually be effective?
I’m quite certain this would be the type of coverage we can look forward to if what we see now is any indication. Good, fair journalism is almost dead in America and that’s extremely unfortunate.
I disagree good journalism is dead. It’s there. One has to be discerning enough to find and consume it, setting aside monikers such as “fake news.” Lots of brainwashing going on. There are still legit news sources.
I said “almost” dead.
Unfortunately, the majority of what the average American has at his or her disposal is completely politically biased one direction or another.
