    There's now a nonzero chance that I will skip the 2020 WSOP.

    Way too early to say this, but it's also something I can't rule out.

    Does anyone have a clear picture yet of how dangerous it is to someone around 50 years old who isn't sick?

    Druff, you probably shouldn’t worry that the this virus will kill you, but you should consider the risk that you could spread to older members of your family, e.g. your parents, if you oic it up.

    What I read is it seems to kill older people at a much higher rate, they said kids seemed to be recovering from it.

    Figure it probably has half the mortality rate in the US as it does in China, so maybe like 1%.

    If I played WSOP, I would put myself in a couple week quarantine when I came home if it’s still around when WSOP starts.

    Literally best thing everyone can be doing is drinking a shit ton of water, dehydration is what gets people, it puts your body at a disadvantage when trying to recover and it’s so simple to avoid.

    What are the odds that someone out of 75,000 players has the coronavirus?

    You’re a non-smoker, so it is incredibly unlikely to kill you. That said, I’ve seen some cases of doctors and whatever that are in our demographic dying. Not just the one the Chinese may have killed themselves.

    You’d have to quarantine s yourself away for a few weeks afterward. Avoiding your parents would probably be easy enough but you get your girl or kid sick, even if minor, you’re going to feel horrible about it.

    From everything I’ve read, this isn’t just the flu. It is a much bigger pain in the ass. It may only kill maybe 1-2%, but it puts a lot of damn people in the intensive care and on a host of medicines if it gets to that point. I know you are really averse to taking a lot of medication.

    This thing isn’t the end of civilization of anything, but the incubation rates are growing wider. They’re talking 27 days. It lives on surfaces and shit.

    It’s killing the economy because this quarantine shit and 30% of a workforce out sick and all the logistical nightmares is a nightmare for getting shit from point a to b.

    If it’s only a few hundred US cases, fuck it I’d go. If it’s thousands, I’d probably skip in your spot. I’d go in a second if it was myself. Fuck it, I almost died at 30, this is all a free roll to me. Taking out elderly relatives though makes it a bad gamble if its at all widespread imo.

    I mean, you lost a grudge match to yebsite and the sidedish says people fear him more at the table now anyway, so you’re probably saving money

    So there’s reports that some people that tested positive and recovered have tested positive again.

    15% of people retested after going from positive to negative test positive again.

    It’s pretty much agreed upon that it takes the body two weeks to build antibodies, so if you get reinfected in that window you are basically fucked.

    The CDC should probably expand their criteria set for IDing people who should be tested for this virus.

    California coronavirus patient was not tested for several days; some hospital staffers told to stay home
    https://www.latimes.com/california/s...-uc-davis-says

    UC Davis officials said the patient arrived at UC Davis Medical Center from another hospital Feb. 19. But the patient was not tested until Sunday [Feb. 23].

    “Upon admission, our team asked public health officials if this case could be COVID-19. We requested COVID-19 testing by the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], since neither Sacramento County nor the California Department of Public Health is doing testing for coronavirus at this time. Since the patient did not fit the existing CDC criteria for COVID-19, a test was not immediately administered. UC Davis Health does not control the testing process,” the medical center said in a statement.

    On Sunday, the statement added, “the CDC ordered COVID-19 testing of the patient, and the patient was put on airborne precautions and strict contact precautions, because of our concerns about the patient’s condition.”

    The positive test results came back Wednesday, the medical center said.

    The fuck you say?

    I have been very disciplined by not sports wagering NBA .... patiently waiting for preseason Japanese baseball at 5am.

    I saw Yankees Red Sox last year when it was 35 degrees. I put down my gloves in the men’s room and forgot them. I thought I’d have to go home such was the risk of frostbite. Indoor stadiums are faggot.

    Add Italy to Iran when you’re talking about countries with way more cases than they realize. South Korea is all i trust as far as being accurate, organized, and transparent. Cases popping up all over Europe that have have Italian origin. More bodies in Iran and Italy have dropped than SK. I’d guesstimate 10x the reported cases in Italy and 50x the cases reported in Iran.
