Season suspended

based on the article, the pct points idea sounds fair.

 

if not that, I would think they set a format where all teams play the same number of games. If you take this route, how do you accomplish this? Do you just have the team with a lower number of games played finish up while the other teams just sit and wait? im not sure that is fair because it would be like giving those teams tune up games going into the playoffs. but then again, these could be crucial games that knock them out of the PO picture,making it a moot point.

Plus, you'd have to have only teams that haven't hit 72  play each other.  Then you still don't have even up opponents. 

 

The warm up thing is more troubling.  But I guess none of it is ideal so go with whatever.

When the curve flattens. Two pictures for you: Italy vs South Korea below. Very different trajectories. South Korea appears to have it under control, Italy does not. Stories coming out of Italy, at the hospital level, are not good. They recorded 250+ more deaths today. There will be more, lots more.

For those who want the sobering numbers, I crunched them:  (Since I don't have any hockey stats to crunch.)

 

Here are the figures:

 

132,913 cases

4,965 deaths

69,847 recovered

 

That's what the site gives.... but more important is what they don't give. (See below.)

 

If there are 132,913 cases reported and 69,847 have recovered, that means 132,913 - 69,847 = 63,066 have NOT recovered.

 

Of those, 63,066 - 4,965 = 58,101 are currently INFECTED by the virus but they haven't reached an outcome yet, so we don't know whether they will live or die. That means we need to EXCLUDE the group of 58,101 people who are still alive but battling the virus right now. (Their story hasn't been written yet so to speak.)

 

That means that out of all the Coronavirus cases that have run to conclusion (where we know the final outcome) we have 4,965 deaths out of: 4,965 + 69,847 = 74,812 people.

 

Thus, the virus is killing 4,965 / 74,812 ~= 0.066 or roughly 6.6% of those people infected.

Those percentage numbers are deceiving because you are not counting the people that are still infected but not dead or dying.  NOT ACCURATE.

 

EDIT:  Those numbers don’t include people that are or were infected and have not been tested or diagnosed.

I don't know what the figures are for influenza but I think the kill rate for the flu is way lower. Probably less than 1%.

I'm guessing he checked out because of the Sabres and not this Coronavirus.  I hope we don't lose anyone here in the forum and that nobody loses any loved ones. 

 

It's amazing how quickly this "got real" and became the defining story of our times. 

 

I just turned 42 yesterday. Time flies! Mandarin restaurant was nice. Not too busy but not empty either. Had a nice albeit subdued birthday with family.

I imagine when people die they probably get tested for cause of death. For those that have it but don't know they have it, they'll eventually show up as more reported cases. If someone gets it and recovers from it without ever being tested, we'll never know.  Can only go by the data we have.

Interesting.  Werent you the guy yesterday who was upset because this was interrupting your ability to watch hockey and Austin Matthews quest for 50 goals?

 

I dunno, maybe this puts things in perspective.  Maybe the NHL did the right thing

Yes, and I'm STILL upset!  I want to drop-kick this Coronavirus off the planet. 😡

 

(I also want this thread in the general NHL area lol.)

Well considering the entire world is now on PAUSE I guess so. The bigger question now is whether there will be an NHL next season. Could be an NHL minus about 15 teams that go bankrupt. Even when the Coronavirus thing blows over and the final body count is tallied, the economic damage is not something the world is going to instantly recover from.

The mortality rate for 1918 H1N1 pandemic was approximately 1-3% worldwide.

 

The mortality rate for 1968 H3N2 pandemic was approximately 0.03% worldwide. 

 

The mortality rate for 2009 H1N1 pandemic was approximately 0.001-0.003% worldwide.

 

The mortality rate for 2002 SARS-CoV outbreak was approximately 9.5% worldwide (NOTE: 8089 people were diagnosed with SARS and 774 died from it)

 

The mortality rate for the MERS-CoV virus since 2012 was approximately 34% worldwide (NOTE: 2519 people were diagnosed with MERS and 866 died from it, mainly limited to the Middle East.)

 

Far fewer people appear to be infected by past coronavirus outbreaks (SARS and MERS), but the mortality rate is much higher than the influenza virus.

I think the true numbers of COVID-19 are probably lower, because there has been such poor testing in some countries (USA I'm looking in your direction). I've read some reports where they think the mortality rate may be actually closer to 1% because some people may have had it and thought it was the flu and never got tested. But that's still a lot of people dying.

 

That's the thing that's frustrating working in public health. People are scared, and we try to make reasonable recommendations about hand washing, social distancing, and self-isolation to calm them down. But then you get a "leader" who basically flaunts all of our recommendations because he's worried that he'll look "weak" or his Nielsen Ratings will go down.

Lets not jump off the ledge. I expect the NHL to do everything it can to have playoffs this season. Next season will be fine and no teams will fold

      You must reasonable about this.   It is NOT just about the kill rate. Right now--at present--the kill rate is still less than flu. Legitimate expectations are still 1.X%. That alone is not worth panicking about.   But that is not the whole story. 1.X% of WHAT? How many people are expected to get infected is an important stat in figuring out what the appropriate level is to react to this. If 2/3 of the country eventually get infected, but the virus still kills 1.X% of 2/3 of t

      CDC.gov.....(if you "trust" the government that is   (this is a HUGE problem in our society right now. People's inability to find sound scientific or medical information from trained professionals...like doctors and pH.D scientists and such. STOP GETTING YOUR INFORMATION FROM FACEBOOK PEOPLE!!!!)   (That was not "aimed" at you fly4ever! good luck making your decisions.)

      The mortality rate for the seasonal influenza is around 0.1%.    They’re estimating the mortality rate for COVID-19 to be about 3-5%.    Pretty significant difference.

      Sorry for my earlier snappage.  I just didn't like being called an idiot and a pet-peeve of mine is when people create topics of general forum interest in the Flyers section because it totally ignores the rest of us. This forum really needs representation from other teams too.
