The NFL is also trying to reach an agreement with players as the NBA struggles to restart the regular season,media BGR reported. However, the new crown pandemic remains a continuing concern across the United States. What’s more, the number of new crowns in many U.S. states is already reaching record levels. As a result, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Thursday that this year’s NFL season may not happen.
“Unless the players are basically in a bubble,” Fuchs explains, “it’s hard to see how the game can be played, isolated from the community and they’re tested almost every day.” “
“If there’s a second wave,” Fuchs added, “it’s certainly possible, and it’s going to be complicated by a predictable flu season, and this year’s football game probably won’t happen.” “
Coincidentally, Fauci made the comments just days after some prominent NFL players tested positive for the virus. Earlier this week, Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott tested positive for his new crown. Other Cowboys players also tested positive. In addition, there have been reports that THE COVID-19 has recently begun to spread among some players in the Houston Texans.
Similar to the Utah Jazz players received a positive diagnosis, the NBA season was suspended, the same thing may happen in the NFL. Media said that given the NFL team’s crowded locker rooms and the nature of the game itself, it seems impossible to prevent the coronavirus from spreading throughout the team as long as one player tests positive.
Given COVID-19, the NFL has come up with a list of teams’ safety measures, and while league officials are optimistic about the NFL’s 2020 season, the unpredictability of the new crown virus could lead to the cancellation of this year’s season.
