Reds place Hunter Greene on injured list with COVID-19 as cases rise in the region

Reds pitcher Hunter Greene won’t be playing a game for a little while. He was placed on the injured list Thursday due to COVID-19.

The team made the announcement Friday morning on social media.

COVID-19 is trending upward in Southwest Ohio and Kentucky. New cases are the highest they’ve been since February, according to newly released data.

That sucks for them. I had to fly in first week of August and I wore a mask. The new flu except it's year round now.

I wonder if they are doing mandatory testing because a player would have to be crazy to be asked to be tested for fear something like this happens

I tested positive the other day... Even with two vaccines.

Hell I don't have a job like they do and didn't want to get tested, it's just not worth the headache of mandatory time off, fortunately a 3 day weekend, and a 5 day recovery is mandated (for my work) so I'm not missing out on much work.

(mind you my symptoms was basically one day of 102 degree temp, headache, shortness of breath with exercise (which has been an ongoing issue with me for the past year plus with my heart failure not sure if it's part of that or not) and other stuff that you don't mention in polite company.--- after that the temp dropped although it fluctuated a lot on the next day, since then it stabilized)

They ended COVID testing in 2022.

It's not over, people.

It may never be over.

Like war, it's over if you want it. At least it is if you didn't buy the con and get the covid shots.

It’s still an illness that can be pretty bad in some cases. We are living a completely normal life at this point, have been traveling extensively, etc. But my wife had COVID for the first time a few months ago and even if she hadn’t tested positive, I don’t think she would have been going into the office or visiting relatives given the symptoms she had. Knowing it was COVID we took some extra precautions, and I’m glad we did.

All I'm gonna say is that if you don't get the Gates/Soros microchip version of the vaccine ... you're missing out on a SWEET streaming deal ... MAX, Netflix AND the complete Disney package ... ALL for $11.99 a month.
Best part ... you don't even need a antenna OR even a TV ... you just close your eyes and the chip projects the video onto the back of your eyelids!

I finally got it for the first time (that I know of) about two weeks ago. It was pretty unpleasant! Really glad to have had plenty of vaccinations to avoid the worst of it.

The Harvard School of Public Health estimated about nine months ago that 94% of the U.S. population had been infected by COVID-19 at least once. I suspect the number is a little higher now.
So unless you live alone in the deep woods or something......

I made a smart move last summer - I've never missed a day of work in my life due to illness (I chose my parents wisely!), so I had figured in advance that if I got it, not to expect the worst of symptoms.

woke up one day with a slightly hoarse voice and a mild cough. that wasn't much, but I was scheduled to be part of a group work event that night - dinner for 12. Didn't like the sound of "Typhoid Howie," so I went to a clinic just in case.

Bingo ! The nurse sort of yawned, "well, you did test positive."
she started to mention that 3-day drug you can take that moderate the most horrific and dangerous symptoms - replacing those with different very unpleasant but less dangerous symptoms. I'm old enough to be in the "danger zone," supposedly, even having gotten vaccinated multiple times, but she said I probably didn't need to take it. so I didn't.

sure enough, I got no other symptoms and that was that.
I suspect I got it again this spring, but I never bothered to check. just hunkered down for a few days out of courtesy for others (I've been working from home for 7 years aside from attending occasional conference around the country).

did that covid thing with the red sox pitcher and his lungs ever have a happy ending? or is his career just ruined?

a wrestler named bray wyatt, who had covid earlier this year, passed away last week. he had pre-existing heart issues that were apparently exacerbated by covid, and his heart just gave out on him.

#10 are you talking about Eduardo Rodriguez and his heart issue (myocarditis)? Dude is 10-7 with a 3.11 ERA for the Tigers this season, so I think he is doing ok. He missed 2020 but since then has thrown 373 innings with a 110 ERA+

I've been Covid unlucky.

1st go round: Thanksgiving 2020. Worst I've felt since college when I had mono and strep at the same time, missed 2 1/2 weeks of work, should have been at least a week more because I couldn't function at 100% for another 3 weeks. As bad as I felt, I never entertained the thought of needing to go to the hospital (which is good, because if I remember correctly lots of people were still dying because they didn't have a grip on treatment yet).
2nd: January '22. Missed a week and a half of work. Not as bad as 1st time, but sickest I've been in a very long time (non-Covid division).
3rd: April '23. Early Paxlovid shot likely saved me from another awful week.

As for Covid being around for a while, I read once that the flu shot we get every fall is for variants of the Spanish Flu, so yeah it's probably something we'll have to deal with.

Yeah, COVID's real and not going anywhere.

covid will never go away because just when you think you now what it looks like it changes how it looks and the vaccine won't never be perfect just like the flu vaccine

but like Husband's doctor told us - the more vaccines you get the more antibodies you get

i know the rightys say covid doesn't exist so does this mean all the people i know who died from it are not really dead? are they just zombies? or is it that it does exist but so what if lots of people die who cares

i can't never figure them out

The funeral director in my home town (rural NW Ohio), deeply conservative guy in a deeply conservative town, said they didn't have anywhere to put all the bodies during the worst of COVID. He's a believer.

What I want to ask the non-believers is, if not COVID, how did all of these people die?

Is there really still anyone who denies the *existence* of covid?

I'm aware that there is a faction that says *long* covid isn't a thing, and of course there are differences in opinion regarding the proper public policy to deal with it, but blanket covid-deniers are pretty much confined to the extreme fringes at this point.
