College football insider Brett McMurphy reported that Kentucky’s football team, coaches, and staff were all tested for COV-19: they all passed.
While the results are good news (for normal people), there will be an audience hugging science to prevent sports from being played. America’s doctor, Anthony Fauci, has been on the record with caution over the return of sports.
Kentucky tested 166 football student-athletes, coaches & staff & none tested positive for COVID— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) July 13, 2020
“We all would love to get sports back to where it was normally. But we’ve got to remember we have a responsibility for the health and welfare of people. If we could do both simultaneously, that would be wonderful” Fauci said.
He concluded that “Sports were good for our country. They are good for our mental health.”
His claim checks out as physician Benjamin Miller estimates that suicide is projected to increase by an alarming 75,000 people.
Alarming numbers to see when we crandle science against a reopening of our sports.
Kentucky required face masks just four days ago and have been lax overall in their handling of the outbreak. These facts raise a serious question: How did 166 people on Kentucky’s football team, coaching and staff manage to stay healthy?
Some are arguing herd immunity.
Just a few days ago, our very own Clay Travis would share a few articles that implied that herd immunity should lead to the reopening of sports and our lives. The article from Offguardian’s JB Handley provided a graph showing death rates plummeting, regardless of what positive or negative tests show.
Kentucky’s negative tests should help start college football, but maybe the media has us focused on test results, when we should be zeroed in on our death rates.
According to science, it’s time to snap a beer open for football Saturday.
