    Just STOP with the damnable fear mongering! The FLU spreads thru every venu and we don't LITERALLY KILL PEOPLE, by deciding to shut down the economy and allowing the government to decide who is essential! JUST STOP!

    "Sports fans are longing to return to the stands" Not really. Most avid sports fans digest events by streaming or on TV. I had no idea a virus could spread though…Amazing reporting.

    Just don’t go to sporting events! Watch them from home if you even like grown men wrestling over a oval ball.

    WSJ is NewsCorp. Fox News is NewsCorp. What gives with the difference in coverage?

    Two questions:
    -Should the virus explode in the fall, would you choose to be in the USA or Sweden?
    -Today, is more misery sourced from the virus or the lockdown?

    We are never getting to Stage 4 for churches, movies, and large venues everything as we know it has permanently changed. I hope MLB, NFL, and all other sports go bankrupt! The economy will survive if people dont attend dumb games.

    Talk about a public health nightmare! A stadium filled with yelling fans.

    You cannot hide forever. 85x of the population do not develop any symptoms or very mild symptoms. We hnow the virus now, we do have effective treatments and the public attending the sporting events are not the risk groups. The virus ravaged the old people homes not the sporting fields.
