Seems to point to death not being the only problem with getting COVID. Lifelong physical issues are in store for many.

Maybe supplementing with a small taurine supplement will help these guys a bit.

You have to search with the full text, the blue highlited stuff does not work right...don't know how to fix that issue.

So, is being a student attending live classes safe? Why cancel sports and not classes if we are so worried about students?

If effective treatments like HCQ + Zn + AZ where not restricted, how would that help people recover from the virus quicker and avoid more long term damage?

Will need to compare them with athletes from other nations where these treatments where more open to public use to find the impacts.

Athletes do get a lot of things measured and probed, do make for good cases to study with a lot of available health science evidence.

Great point I'd love to see the comparison. The charts already suggest countries using it are doing much better.

My position on it is this:

They're going to be under 1 of 3 scenarios.

1. They get sent home to work out as best they can under who knows what family conditions and supervision with whatever medical care the family can provide.

2. They become students on campus at large livin' the college kid life. They have whatever medical care they can provide under those circumstances like the other students, and they work out as best they can.

3. They continue as student athletes under constant testing and medical supervision, including tight cardiac monitoring to guard against whatever conditions my arise, because the university athletic department can implement those strict protocols and the structure that comes with them and provide the very best care.

None of those three scenarios are going to keep them safe from the virus. COVID is out there no matter where they are or what they are doing. The only difference is who is ultimately responsible for their care when they get it.

Incidentally, if you want to know how college kids do college ...

My cousin's oldest get back to school, and took off to party at two or three of the state schools with her roommates. They all got the COVID.

Now my cousin and his wife are telling her she can't come home and bring it with her because they none of them need it.

Of course, she doesn't have a serious case (already pretty well over it) or things would be different, but they're not taking a bullet because she was stupid.
