Almost everywhere apparently. In addition, hospitals have a financial incentive to classify deaths as China Virus related.

Not sure that the 2 examples given to change one death in Alaska and another by a couple is concrete examples of widespread inflation. The article was poorly written, but I thank you for the interesting link. It did lead me to an article regarding miscalculation of deaths that clarified how it occurred and how it was fixed.

Regardless, I think that there can be collegiate sports in the fall, albeit with some adjustments. Much, much more widespread testing would help--it would also likely show that while deaths have risen, new infections and recoveries have risen by a much larger number, which would bring the death toll in percentage terms down. Further, it would allow for some comparisons, say like flu season to see what the differences are and drive some better public policy decisions/guidelines for people to use.

Well here we go with the lockdowns again. I have a feeling we are about to go back to zero sports for a long while. ESPN has been trying to get rid of football for a decade now & they may get their wish. By this time next year they may look like 1980 version once again if they are even in business.

Where are you getting that about ESPN? If they don’t have football what are they going to show all fall?

I heard the entire Kansas State team is boycotting the season -there should be a thread for this.

I hope we get those bastards on the schedule again soon.

The people "doing" ESPN are concerned with one thing. I'm $ure you can figure out what it might be if you think really hard.
The people “doing” espn are 1000’s of individuals. I’m sure you can figure out that they might have many concerns if you think really hard.
