  1. In the first 15 minutes: They compare the number of COVID-19 deaths currently to the hundreds of thousands to millions without mentioning the time scale of said model predictions. They do not mention if they tested 5000 random people or 5000 symptomatic and/or exposed people and likewise for the testing numbers of the various states and countries. Important for the extrapolations they make. Compare COVID-19 deaths in three months to flu deaths PER YEAR Gloss over the 4x difference in the percentage of positive cases between Norway and Sweden and the 5x difference in deaths per 1 million people. They just imply both numbers are very small and, thus, the differences are "statistically insignificant". That is not the definition of statistically insignificant. Why should we trust these two guys, whose job is to treat and stabilize people in an Emergency Departments over epidemiologists whose job is to perform statistical analyses like the one these two haphazardly tried to do?
  2. Appropriate for me trying to work at home while alone with my one year old.
  3. I think that is why he quoted the Case Fatality Rate
  4. Hey now....this is definitely not social distancing. At least wear gloves, er, a glove.
  5. Fair enough. If this testing is beneficial, fine. However, in New York City and Colorado, health officials have already stated that the time for testing everybody has passed and social distancing should be priority. I understand other regions of the country may not be at that point yet.
  6. The goal is to slow the spread to keep from over overwhelming the health care system, right? Pushing for everyone to get a test, even those with mild symptoms and no risk factors, seems counter productive to that goal.
  7. 1.) why do think that is? Perhaps, the steps China took to limit the spread had an impact. What say you? 2.) what’s your point? It is in other countries now. They aren’t out of the woods once China is.
  8. Once it is cancelled, UCF will declare themselves National Champions
  9. He had to have symptoms at some point. Why else would they test him for URI, influenza, strep, and, then COVID19?
  10. Said poster generally posts that way. I think the Pack was going to go undefeated in conference play the previous two seasons.
  11. Also, I responded quickly. Didn’t want to come off as combative. Cheers.
  12. If Nevada doesn’t keep turning the Aztecs over, don’t think they hold the lead.
  13. Haven’t they also overcome halftime deficits at home against Nevada and Utah state and still had 12+ point leads in the second half of those games? If they lose this game in blowout fashion I may have doubts. Though, I don’t see that happening.
  14. Flynn has been incredible. Pack offense has also been very good, defense not as good. Also, methinks you all are confirming the Aztecs demise a bit prematurely.
  15. I think the 3-way tie breaker is only applied to break the initial tie, which would go to Nevada. From there 2-way tiebreaker would be used for UNLV/CSU.
