A friend of the blog emails:
Wow! Think the media will report Covid19 at our military academies in the coming weeks. No distancing, many with masks not covering their faces.
Nothing to see here, right?
Another friend of the blog pointed out that the cadets and midshipmen were all parts of training cohorts that were pretty much together all the time anyway. Which to me introduced the question – if we take the information civilians in GenPop are given, doesn’t that still mean that the service academies are “superspreaders?”
That being said, I wasn’t too concerned, given that everyone involved is young, healthy, selected in part for a lack of pre-existing conditions, largely sequestered away from those that aren’t, and part of a demographic cohort with roughly a 100% survival rate.
And as neither was the NDSU Bison, it didn’t rise to the level of a priority for me anyway.
