Fear-mongers Joy Reid and Dr. Anthony Fauci will be begging for crow. You have lost all faith in your expectations about huge college football stadiums filled with thousands of people serving as COVID-19 super-spreaders.
The mid-season stage of college football is here, and COVID-19 epidemics have been declining in some states that boast the biggest stadiums. We have seen the worst of the predictions about the end of the world come true, with thousands of fans seated side-by-side at big college football games.
“As soon as I saw it (the opening of college football stadiums to fans in September), I thought COVID’s about to have a feast,” Reid told Dr. Fauci on NBC Today. “What did you think?” Fauci said, “I thought the same thing. I think it’s really unfortunate.”
What’s that? Dr. Fauci wrong? Is Dr. Fauci wrong again? He appears to be continuing his downward slide, according to those of the Left who seem almost to have bestowed sainthood upon him in spite of his poor track record.
NBC reporter Shaquille Brewster shot them both down with his report Saturday. “But it never happened,” he said of the drastic expectations. “COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths now all down nation-wide. Cases are in steep decline in every college football state across the south, including Florida, where hospitalizations fell 64 percent last month.” That’s despite as many as 90,000 fans packing the Florida Gators stadium for games and more than 100,000 fans attending games in other states.
The New York comedy group that created the Ron DeathSantis signs said Gov. DeSantis had been a scourge of Florida for his insanity. But they’re the ones looking awfully dumb now.
Brewster received confirmation from Dr. Hiren Pokharna who is an expert in infectious diseases.
Cindy Prins (University of Florida epidemiologist) said that TV footage of huge stadium crowds can seem frightening, but it’s not.
Brewster said that only three things prevented super spread: open-air places, vaccinations during the surge and natural immunity when the Delta Variant was introduced to younger people.
Brewster observed that indoor basketball season is now the focus of the story.
