Re: soccer soccer soccer

8 UCL games happening today, and USMNT in the starting lineup for 2 teams (Pulisic-Chelsea, Dest-Barcelona), and on the bench for 2 more (Reyna-Dortmund, Adams-RB Leipzig), and would be a 5th if McKennie didn't have COVID (Juventus). I won't stand for this Ethan Horvath erasure. Neither did he - ni...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Ok, then look at the hospitalization and death numbers. They aren’t remotely the same as they were back then. Euhm ... according to yesterday's graph for hospitalizations (source: Sciensano COVID19 daily report page 4) we are already back to end of march levels, and rising sharply. Same for daily d...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

What has changed to make the graphs look so different? That’s what we’re discussing. The level of testing seems to be the obvious answer (to cite our local numbers: we went from 4,000 tests a day mid march to over 50,000 a day now) - the testing strategy has also evolved; as a result, comparing cas...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

The recent surge in Europe hasn't been reflected in a surge in deaths. Yet - deaths are starting to trend upwards though. As the head of the largest university hospital in Brussels put it: there's a 10 to 14 day interval between each of the phases of the surge 1. positive test numbers explode 2. ho...

Mexico is playing The Netherlands in Amsterdam today (and leading 0-1 with 15’ left) - not sure why the USMNT isn’t playing a game somewhere.

Exactly; Newcastle were horrendously bad but Spurs failed to put the game away, thus setting themselves up for being robbed by a fluke penalty at the very end.
