    If we can get rapid widespread testing, sports returning in the fall may be both possible and beneficial. If you test everyone before they're allowed in the stadium, every city would know tens of thousands of people and be able to quarantine the sick ones.

    I do not think this is possible or even a good idea what about all the people they would get in contact with before they got to the testing center

    do you think there will be shelter in place orders through the fall? people are going to be tired of being home. businesses will eventually need people to return to the office. the only way to combat the virus is to conduct widespread testing and sports are an avenue that enable that.

    So you think the way to combat the virus is to hold gatherings of 100,000 people in order to test them at these gatherings?

    Me, nervously trying to blend in on the sports website: “I always like to go to the municipal stadium and stand in the single file line for entry. Sometimes I’ll have a mead in the parking lot before getting in line.”

    but then asymptomatic carriers are in close proximity with tens of thousands of other people

    And anyone person testing positive which will definitely happen will cause tens of thousands of people that person may have been in contact with to quarantine

    by this logic, society is effectively shut down until there's a vaccine, right? so 18-24 months? i don't believe people or businesses can/will last that long distancing. the entire country doesn't need to shut down when you know who is actually sick, e.g. japan, sk, hk, singapore, etc. if sports leagues, businesses, etc. can rapidly test people, then things will be okay (though changed; probably no tailgating and perhaps people have different entry points and start times to limit exposure, etc.)

    18-24 months seems like an extreme timeline if the idea is just to make sure that the people who get sick can be cared for :idk:

    all i know is what i've been reading in the past couple of days so take it fwiw

    What does “rapidly test” mean to you, and what happens when that’s multiplied by 60,000 people?

    also it seems like there's a middle ground between shutting everything down and gathering in groups of 60,000 where everyone is touching the same concession counters, using the same bathrooms, etc

    the timeline i've always read is a minimum of 18 months for development (so maybe 16-17 month now?) and then time to produce and distribute the vaccine. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_vaccine

    something that takes a couple minutes, max.

    https://techcrunch.com/2020/03/27/a...ab-and-can-produce-results-in-just-5-minutes/

    that one is 5-15 minutes. i'd assume there can be further development towards something even quicker, though maybe there's a limitation here that i'm unfamiliar with.

    If all of the tests took 5 minutes and you set up 1000 testing sites at a game (which wouldn't happen lol it'd be like 6) it'd take 5 hours to test everyone

    Let’s say that we can get it down to 2 minutes. I have no idea if this is medically feasible, just offering it as a guidepost.

    That means you have 120,000 minutes of loitering to account for for a 60,000 seat stadium. Now split that between 6 gates, with 10 lines at each gate and two people doing scanning at each gate. That’s 1,000 minutes of waiting per line.

    So sure, feasible if people start showing up 15 hours ahead of time.

    Agree with this. I think quarantines start lifting in May and we get sports, albeit with smaller crowds (limited to essential staff, family, etc.)

    18 months would be a pretty rapid timeline for having a vaccine ready to be used on the public at large.

    i'm talking about in terms of the overall goal. if it's just to make sure that everyone who gets sick can be cared for, then it's not even close to 18 months. it's more like 2 or 3 (?). at least from what i've read.

    Also I assume test production will be up bigly by then, but burning 2.5 million tests every Saturday so people can watch college football in person seems off to me.

    UVA has a quick test of their own and their goal is to get it down to 2 hours when the test is done in house.

    They are rush approving treatments in NY. This administration rush approving vaccines to save the election, err economy, err people, wouldn't surprise. Drug makers are going to want to cash in as so many of the older and sicker customers will have died. I'm not that convinced historical timelines will apply to this case unless finding the vaccine proves very, very difficult. I don't trust this administration to want to wait for a safe/effective/proven vaccine instead of just rushing through the first one.
