New report by the World Health Organization.
We have also learned that COVID has a very low transmission factor on surfaces. Further, the fatality rate for younger people and those without any co-morbidity factors is extremely low.
My take: In retrospect, the wholesale cancellation of certain events may not have been necessary (emphasis on may not).
I get the “better safe than sorry” logic though. A wait and see approach still makes the most sense whenever possible, however I understand that the ramp up time for RAGBRAI is long. Smaller rides though (fewer than say 500) with much simpler logistics? I don’t understand the need to cancel those several months in advance.
OK, so I know this is a hot-button topic, so let the slings and arrows fly. I can take it.
