Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. has theory on coronavirus ‘agenda’

  Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. has theory on coronavirus ‘agenda’ Porter also claimed he has never received a vaccine in his life. Murray noted that the University of Missouri, where Porter played college ball, requires all students to be up to date on certain immunizations. However, there are medical and religious waivers. Porter Jr. ended his response to the question with the following: "It is a serious thing. It's a real thing but this is being overblown." — Clevis Murray (@ClevisMurray) July 29, 2020 It’s possible Porter Jr. hasn’t been vaccinated. According to the University of Missouri website, students can apply for a medical or religious waiver.

The Phillies announced Thursday that one member of the coaching staff and one home clubhouse staff member have tested positive for COVID-19. No players registered positive tests. The club has canceled its scheduled workouts indefinitely.

While it’s obviously possible that these infections occurred elsewhere, it is impossible to ignore the possibility that they came about during the series last weekend with a Marlins club that is now riddled with coronavirus infections. It had been hoped that the virus had been contained to the Miami organization.

The plan had been for the Phillies to resume play on Saturday. Whether that is now in jeopardy isn’t known. The organization has already dealt with some infections earlier this year, but managed to avoid further spread within the club.

This is worrisome news on several levels. First and foremost, it’s concerning to see two more individuals in the game carrying this disease. Hopefully they’ll both make a swift and full recovery.

Beyond that, it’s obviously concerning to see that spread (presumably) occurred between the teams. Fortunately, the Phillies have not had further contact with other organizations since the series against the Marlins. But it seems quite possible that other members of the Phillies organization could still be harboring infections that haven’t yet triggered positive tests. It’s also hypothetically possible that transmission could’ve occurred from the coach and staff member to others, though one would hope the team has exercised stringent caution over the past few days.

NHL has had zero positive COVID-19 tests since teams entered the bubble .
Just one day before players return to the ice for meaningful games, there is some good news from off the ice: There have been zero positive tests for COVID-19 since teams entered the bubble cities in Edmonton and Toronto last weekend. © Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports The NHL hasn't recorded any positive COVID-19 tests within the past week. Testing has ramped up over the past few days as Dreger notes that 1,500 tests are being conducted on a daily basis.  If that number seems high, it’s not just the players for each team who are being tested, but other team officials and executives are as well.
