  1. Without an effective vaccine or treatment I don’t see any path forward for college sports to be played with fans present. The question is, will they allow college football, basketball, and hockey to be played without fans in attendance ? I’m not entirely convinced this will occur. I see almost no chance that the Nashville game will be held this year. They have basically already stated they won’t play the game without fans. The best hope for all sports getting back to normal is to find an effective treatment. I think this can be accomplished sooner than developing an effective vaccine.
  2. That’s just crazy talk. What kind a society would we have if that was the standard.
  3. There is anecdotal data that Leronlimab may be very effective as a treatment. There are double blind studies going on right now and I would assume the results will be known sometime in the next month or so. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/a-promising-drug-for-the-treatment-of-severe-lung-inflammation-in-covid-19-patients-montefiore-einstein-scientists-lead-two-trials-of-leronlimab-301063687.html https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1lbA4zlrguc
  4. Providing aid to states for Coronavirus damage is a tricky subject. How much aid is truly needed directly due to the virus vs state mismanagement of the virus and long term state failures in many other areas ? Every state manages things differently (welfare, aid to illegal immigrants, public pensions etc). Some states have limited or no state income taxes while others have extremely high taxes. I’m not sure the federal government should bail out states. I might be ok with providing loans to them. If you had a neighbor that made six figures throughout a long career, had new cars, boat, all the toys they wanted and then had nothing saved at retirement time, would you be inclined to help them out ? I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t. Just as people need to have personal responsibility for themselves I think each state needs to take responsibility. The states could have emergency funds set aside to handle emergencies. If they need to go beyond that the the federal government can become the lender of last resort, not a source of free money.
  5. I believe i heard it was one pill daily, so I assume 200 mg. Not much to get excited about.
  6. A mask is worn to help protect everyone around you. I doubt it helps the wearer much at all. The gentleman that didn’t want to wear a mask is not assuming any risk, he is adding risk to everyone around him.
  7. Has anyone seen any benefit from using Leronlimab ? There are antidotal stories on the web and I know trials are in progress. It appears that it could be a real beneficial. Long video but interesting: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xUboPq8vbUg
  8. Where are you placing the mask ?

  10. My sympathy for you and your family. Very difficult to see a loved one go through that.
  11. “This video has been removed for violating YouTube's Community Guidelines.” Not allowed to present data that goes against the official doctrine ? Wow !!! Am I living in China or North Korea now ?
  12. Some auto insurance companies are refunding some money to customers due to less driving going on during this shutdown. It appears that many/most hospitals are losing large sums of money due to the loss of non COVID19 patients. Should we expect medical insurance companies to refund some of the premiums being paid ? About the same likelihood of the Sioux name coming back.
  13. The drug Actemra (used for RA) appears to have shown some promise for reducing the cytokine storm in some patients. Has anyone heard of this ? To get back to some state of normal we need a vaccine or something that can treat the symptoms of the virus and reduce mortality. Without that I don’t see how we have a football or hockey season this fall (at least with fans in the stands). Hopefully someone will find a way to successfully treat the severe cases in the next few months. My sincere thanks to those on the frontlines that are battling this virus every day.
  14. Just curious if you are seeing any success in treating patients with any specific drugs ? There seem to be a few drugs that may help like hydroxychloroquine, remdesivir, and leronlimab. Good luck and thank you for all your good work.
