The 1918 flu epidemic was estimated to have killed 50-100 million worldwide. I asked my oldest Oklahoma relative who were kids of parents living in 1918 if their parents ever mentioned the 1918 flu epidemic. No they said they never heard their parents say anything about the 1918 flu epidemic. Perhaps it was because they lived in country far away from easily available news source. They only went to a small town 7-8 miles away when they needed a few staples. They received the Kansas City Star once a week by mail.

I don't even know what this means. It's said like its some kind of dig, but they are allowing the kids to play if they want to. No one is losing eligibility this year, so they are letting each individual decide for themselves. WTF more could the college do?

That makes zero sense. If our death count from COVID was double what's been reported, that means that other causes of death have plummeted by the same amount, and according to the CDC's own website, we're trending just slightly above where we should be right now (was higher in April/May, has been coming in line ever since).

Michigan students are placed under a stay at home order, while Michigan athletes are specifically exempt from stay at home orders. basically it is trying to say the Student athletes are being treated as "essential employees" and the stay at home order doesn't apply to them

Has any one on this board actually had Covid-19 before (I'm not reading 700 pages lol)? I'm currently recovering, and to be honest it has not been anywhere near as severe as the media has portrayed. I understand people react differently, but for me it felt like little more than a sinus infection. Based on my experience, continuing or reinstituting shut-downs is pretty difficult to stomach.
My dad has it right now, is completely bed-ridden. Thankfully he doesn't have the breathing problems so far.
