Well, this is…sucks. That wasn’t what I initially typed, but that’s the more friendly for work version. My work, not yours, since you’re probably on your couch right now.

Experts are saying that it could be the fall of 20-freaking-21 before mass gatherings like concerts and sporting events will be safe to attend because of COVID-19.

Agreed, cartoon swearing guy.

Zeke Emmanuel,  the director of the Healthcare Transformation Institute at the University of Pennsylvania, told the New York Times that the economy would have to be reopened up in a small drip, rather than opening up the faucet all at once. Concerts and sporting events will be the lowest priority, apparently.

“You can’t just flip a switch and open the whole of society up,” Emmanuel said. “It’s just not going to work.  It’s too much.  The virus will definitely flare back to the worst level.”


At least we have everyone’s shaky cell phone footage of old concerts on YouTube to tide us over.
