    Wow.

    It's mind-boggling how "political" this disease is.

    Good luck, America.
    Current PRs: 25m-:16.8/50m-:36.0/100m-1:19.5/200m-2:55.5/400m-6:14/800m-12:50/1600m-26:37

    2020 goal: Break at least one of the above pre-covid PRs!!

    You are SO fortunate to be in Canada right now (and to have been there over the past few years...)!

    Gull,

    What I thought or did not think 4 months ago is irrelevant now. However, I found an article about this specific virus that laid out it's biology in a factual and complete manner - something the media has not done. Go to this link to read - https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01315-7. After reading this article and some of the latest WHO info, I don't plan to do into crowded areas without my "Ethyl alcohol 360 degree aerosol mister" going full bore (aka a can of Lysol to spray at anyone within 6').

    I mention this here because this article casts serious doubt, because of the COVID-19 virus' biology, about a vaccine being developed quickly that will be effective. I don't expect our pools to open before mid-Fall if then.

    Paul

    If we could develop an air filter for water use, we would all buy and use it in our pool and open water workouts.

    According to Emory University's top expert: "COVID-19 is 20 times more deadly than the flu." So, for all of you who previously stated that the coronavirus is no worse than the flu, you are incorrect.
