Beaten but not broken

I'm guessing they were told by someone way more important than them to do so. Why? Not sure, but I'm guessing some important people are aware what widespread panic/disturbance can accomplish and decided it's to their benefit to encourage it.BTW to any social-distancing doubters out there - do you think the NBA, NHL and other sports leagues suspended operations out of the goodness of their heart? Do you really think billionaire team owners are concerned about public health? They made a business decision, as usual.
They were faced with two options: 1) suspend now and try to nip this in the bud as quickly as possible, or 2) act as a major vector of infection and potentially have to suspend operations for a year or more later down the road.
These people care about your health insofar as they need to extract as much money as possible from you.
Coronavirus Update (Live): 156,536 Cases and 5,835 Deaths from COVID-19 Virus Outbreak - WorldometerLive statistics and coronavirus news tracking the number of confirmed cases, recovered patients, and death toll by country due to the COVID 19 coronavirus from Wuhan, China. Coronavirus counter with new cases, historical data, and info. Daily charts, graphs, news and updateswww.worldometers.info
It's now at 93% of the cases are mild. Of course the recovered cases has gone below the 50% number that it was when I posted the above but I believe it will gone down further since once tested I believe many more will have it but time is all that is needed! Didn't have it but looked up that 60 million Americans had the swine flu meaning 1 in 5 persons! Wow!And 90% of the active cases are MILD! Bottom line is it's "flu", a BAD one indeed but just a flu just like the swine flu 10 years!
I understand they/you are saying it will overwhelm the system. Not sure there's any evidence of this. What's overwhelming the system so far is panic. If every idiot with a cough is trying to get tested and buying up all supplies from stores, that's the bigger problemThat was over several months.
The issue is the transmission rate! FFS, why is that so hard for some of you to understand?
I want my NHL playoffs ASAP! Stay home!
