It's an upper respiratory cold virus. It causes common cold symptoms, runny/stuffy nose, low grade fever, chest congestion, cough, etc. Yes, it can lead to pneumonia in people, and sometimes severe pneumonia and death. Right now that is 3% of the people who have tested positive, which is scary, but think about all the people who probably experienced mild cold symptoms and never went to the hospital, so that % is probably lower.
If anyone knows people who work in the medical field, there have been a significant amount of people hospitalized all Fall/Winter with pneumonia. Nationwide Children's was overflowing with cases, and the ICU was maxed out. Kids weren't leaving the ER because ICU was over capacity. They can receive the same care in the ER as ICU, so that is how they were managing it.
This was not on the news to my knowledge, no mass hysteria and panic, but it has already been happening with other viruses going around all Winter. I'm honestly wondering if this virus hasn't already been circulating without us realizing it.
Wash your hands people, stay home if you feel sick, but I agree that it's probably being overblown....at least I hope so.
He actually usually has guests on now, former players, recruiting experts, etc., so he doesn't have his friends chiming in like in the beginning. I think they are just support staff guys/friends/family that would say a few things here and there when they were first starting.
His podcast is really not bad, it's worth checking out. He does provide good insight into college football, and shared very solid analysis throughout the CFB season.
I haven't listened in a few weeks, but he is following Austin Mack through the NFL draft process, and is having Austin provide updates/insight.
I saw one comment that said "If you hated the Last Jedi, you'll love the Rise of Skywalker." I'm actually more excited to see it now that I know some of these critics did not like it.
PSU views this as their rivalry game, plus it will essentially decide who represents the East in the B1G championship, so they are going to come out swinging haymakers.
If OSU does not come out firing on all cylinders, they could see themselves trailing in the 1st half, and it could definitely be a close game going into the 4th.
Don't think it will be a blowout, but can see OSU pulling away in the 4th to win by double digits. Really hoping for a blowout though!
What is going on with our DEs this year? Has there been one game where they were all healthy? Not having Friday and Cooper could be an issue.
Also, how much time does one have to miss in order to be eligible for a medical redshirt? Cooper has played like 30 snaps all season.
