Interesting article. Mentions right up front myocarditis is confronted with the common flu, and is not something people don't recover from.

The report I referred to earlier indicated that the incidence rate of myocarditis in B10 football players tested this fall was not outside the bounds of normal. This is where the consultant lady made the then quoted statement (paraphrasing) "I think one athlete with myocarditis is too many" - playing up the narrative that what was being seen was something abnormal.

I think it's fair to say that COVID-19 has become a literal (and humongous) political football. But go to the data - and there's nothing in the data that suggests college football players are at greater risk from C-19 than any of myriad other health issues. And it's instructive that so many are gravely concerned about 21 yo world-class athletes handling a coronavirus, but have no problem being entertained by them beating each other's brains in each fall. My son plays college basketball, and I have zero concern for his health re: COVID-19 beyond the normal concern for a flu bug ... because he's not over 65, he's not morbidly obese, and he is not immunocompromised.
