Well I'm not talking about herd immunity as this virus appears very different - some people do acquire immunity some don't, which makes development of a vaccine very difficult. And I am well aware of what is going on, just at one point in time the life will have to start moving as I said this is not sustainable in a long run. The spread has slowed down and now it is the time to figure out how to move forward. The easiest way is to preach 'do nothing' and 'keep us locked down', it does require lots of effort to figure out how to KEEP THIS UNDER CONTROL, that's what flattening the curve means, and get us going. For those without any knowledge of microbiology and especially virology - any virus requires a living organism to multiply ie humans in this case and it DOES have a life span, on some surfaces it dies off quicker - read it takes 8-9 days on a plastic surface which is the longest time, so eventually with a proper containment and good testing it will eventually be placed under good control and die off. Eventually can be in years, not definitely tomorrow.
So Keberulz - the virus may eventually go away, not because of restrictions, but because of changed behavior and different practices. Restrictions are in place for a small proportion of population, those non-compliant ones, gives governments means to punish them.
Human race experienced pandemics in the past and it would usually come back strong and within certain time frame, usually 2-3 years.
My advice is to read what the Chief Medical Officer for Victoria stated today in The Age - bringing sport is one of the things on the agenda, however the large gatherings are still long way to go.
And for those not aware - there are flights to and from Australia but the entry rules are in place ie residents and citizens can return and those with a medical clearance can enter, all must comply with quarantine rules so the world is moving.
So Koberulz - if Euroleague can guarantee safety of players and staff by conducting daily tests and flying teams by chartered planes, play in empty stadiums, just to get it going - the borders will not stop it and I bet the countries will support it. Sports has always been something bringing the sense of normality, giving hope and that's why it is important to bring it back in some form rather sooner than later. And I'm not talking money here.
