LSU football coach Ed Orgeron said Tuesday that most of his team has contracted COVID-19.
“Not all of our players, but most of our players have caught it,” Orgeron told reporters. “I think that hopefully they won’t catch it again, and hopefully they’re not out for games.”
Asked later for further clarification, Orgeron said he didn’t know the exact percentage of players who have had the coronavirus.
“Hopefully that once you catch it, you don’t get it again,” he said. “I’m not a doctor. I think they have that 90-day window, so most of the players that have caught it, we do feel like they’ll be eligible for games.”
I remain surprised that they are still planning to hold these college games and predict that this will only spread the virus to a wider demographic.
I understand wanting to get back to some semblance of normalcy, but I really think these people are being incredibly short-sighted.
I also have to wonder what the rigors of training will do to a body trying to recover from even a mild case of Covid-19?
