I hope the young man is okay. I am concerned about what COVID 19 can do to other young athletes.

This is why I continue to state, WHY ARE WE PLAYING SPORTS? AND I want to see in the next 2 to 3 years the effects of COVID on those students that got the disease.

that's all...   :tiptoe:

Like most of his teammates, Johnson tested positive for COVID-19 during the summer. Although the cause of Johnson's ailment was not immediately known, the coronavirus can lead to myocarditis, a viral infection of the heart muscle.

Florida's Keyontae Johnson placed in medically-induced coma after collapsing during game Saturday

Johnson remains in critical but stable condition and is still hospitalized after the incident on Saturday
           
Florida star Keyontae Johnson remains hospitalized and is in critical but stable condition after collapsing on the court Saturday in the first half of the Gators' game against No. 20 Florida State. Johnson's grandfather, Larry DeJarnett, told USA Today that his grandson is in a medically-induced coma which doctors are hoping to bring him out of on Monday afternoon. DeJarnett also said Johnson was transported to a hospital in Gainesville, Florida, on Monday after receiving treatment in Tallahassee, the location of Saturday's game.

I pray this young man pulls through. I know one thing, when his family sues, they'll own the University of Florida

Why would they sue? The families are just at fault for allowing and pushing these students to play all Summer long knowing FULLY well the consequences of this disease. Sue all they want. It will not go anywhere.

that's all...   :tiptoe:
