Cubs 360 Daily: Analyzing MLB’s possible plan to start season during COVID-19
Dr. Robert Citronberg, of Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, joined Len Kasper and host Cole Wright to discuss baseball’s plan to start the season during COVID-19.
Dr. Citronberg is skeptical on baseball’s plan to play this season.
“I don’t think it’s a realistic plan at this point. What I like to tell people to urge is that, I love sports we all love sports but sports are not nearly as important as the health of our population. In order to get back into a place where we have sports, we have arenas that are filled. We have to have the disease under control.”
Len Kasper asked Dr. Citronberg about a potential of facing another wave of the COVID-19 virus.
“The way I explain to people is the virus doesn’t move; people with the virus move. The way to prevent transmission is to keep people away from each other. We’ve already made progress but we have a lot more to go before we make enough progress so that we can re-enter society as we know it. I think the real risk of this second wave is relaxing the restrictions too early.”
Dr. Citronberg states that everybody should get tested for the COVID-19 virus.
