We are witnessing history every day.
Many footballers have been diagnosed, the five major leagues have been suspended, and the once-in-a-century historical scene has appeared in our lives. You will be caught off guard, you will beat your chest and your feet, what can you do if there is no game to watch.
But in the face of life, football obviously has to take a back seat. Champions, winning streaks, and wonderful goals are no longer important.
Juventus defender Rugani is like the first domino, and his diagnosis has caused a huge response in European football. Since then, many footballers including Arsenal coach Arteta, Chelsea player Odoi, and Sampdoria's Gabia Dini have been diagnosed. Not only in European football, but also in the NBA arena. Jazz players Gobert and Mitchell are also unfortunately "successful."
The rapid spread of the epidemic has forced countries to attach great importance to it. The successive suspension of matches has become a helpless but necessary decision for all leagues. On March 13, the Premier League officially announced the suspension of all games before April 4. Then the Bundesliga announced the suspension of the current round of the league. UEFA officially announced the postponement of all the UEFA Champions League and Europa League matches, and the draw was also postponed.
So far, we are "fortunate" to witness the historical moment when all five major leagues have been suspended.
Because athletes are in close contact in locker rooms, buses, conference rooms and other places, they may also share water bottle towels and other items, and the possibility of mutual infection is far greater than the general population. In a stadium with a relatively closed game environment and a high population density (such as the NBA), the speed and scope of the virus will be even more terrifying.
As Juventus conducted an in-team training on the day of the incident, the entire Juventus team and its staff were quarantined because of Rugani's diagnosis. At the same time, after the game between Juventus and Inter Milan, Rugani, who did not play, also participated in the celebration in the dressing room, during which there was also the possibility of infection.
And Gobert's diagnosis not only directly suspended the NBA, the NHL North American Professional Hockey League may also be suspended. Because the NBA and NHL share playing fields are not a few teams, the Jazz have visited Boston and Detroit before, and the NHL Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings share the home arena with the Celtics and Pistons respectively.
In addition, the Jazz's previous away game against the Knicks, the Madison visiting team locker room they used was also used by the NHL team New York Rangers.
Arsenal coach Arteta reported on social media that he is safe; Chelsea player Odoi said on his personal Twitter that he has recovered from the new crown virus and will need to be quarantined in the next week; Gabiardini 13 In an interview, Ri said: "I don't have a fever anymore, but my throat hurts a bit."
阿森纳教练阿泰塔（Arteta）在社交媒体上报道说他很安全。切尔西球员奥多伊（Odoi）在他的个人Twitter上表示，他已经从新的冠状病毒中恢复过来，需要在下周进行隔离； Gabiardini 13在接受采访时，Ri说：“我不再发烧，但我的喉咙有点痛。”
However, the current safety does not mean that there is no possibility of further development of the disease. Many fans have begun to worry: Will the new crown pneumonia affect the players' sports career?
First of all, there is a misunderstanding that needs to be explained, that is, professional athletes do not mean that immunity is always strong. Athletes maintain systematic high-intensity training for a long time and have strong bodies, but all beings are equal in the face of the pneumonia epidemic, and they are also susceptible. In addition, long-term intense high-intensity exercise can increase blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and suppress the immune system. Therefore, players need to rest fully after the game to regain their immunity.
Earlier, there were rumors online that the lung damage of patients with new coronary pneumonia is irreversible. Wang Chen, deputy dean of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and expert in respiratory and critical care medicine, said: Our limited observations show that lung function will repair and grow by itself and fully recover. Of course, further and longer-term observations are needed. I think everyone Don't worry too much about this.
In an interview with CCTV, Wang Jing, the chief physician of the Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine at Beijing Chaoyang Hospital, expressed a similar view: After the recovery of mild patients and ordinary patients, there will be no sequelae in the lungs, and the cure effect is basically a complete recovery.
In other words, if the condition of players such as Rugani, Odoi, and Gabiyadini does not deteriorate and remains at a mild stage,
For severe and critically ill patients, it will definitely cause serious damage to the functions of the entire body in the short term. The overreaction of virus or autoimmune function will directly cause damage to the lungs. The intuitive effect is that lung capacity is reduced, and some pulmonary fibrosis may be left after recovery.
In this case, the player's cardiopulmonary function, running ability, and confrontation ability will be greatly reduced, and whether they can adapt to the rhythm of professional football is also questioned. Therefore, if the confirmed player's condition worsens to severe or even critical illness, their athletic ability must be weakened.
Seventeen years ago, we mainly relied on injecting hormones to resist the virus, which would cause long-term complications and sequelae such as femoral head necrosis. Nowadays, antiviral drugs are mainly used in the face of new coronary pneumonia, which are relatively less harmful to the human body. At the same time, many comforting treatments are currently used, including infusion to supplement electrolytes and taking Chinese patent medicines, which are less harmful to patients.
In previous reports, we can also see that many mild patients can rely on immunity to achieve self-healing. Therefore, there will be scenes such as collective square dancing, reading and learning in the square cabin hospital. A doctor who has been participating in the treatment on the front line said: “In fact, the most important thing for mild patients is to adjust their mentality. Do not impose pressure on your own. At the same time, our doctors will also organize and practice Baduanjin and other aerobics to treat patients psychologically. It is very helpful for their recovery."
More than a month ago, the pneumonia epidemic broke out in China on a large scale, and my country adopted a series of strict measures including the lockdown of the city. Now that the epidemic situation has finally improved, the number of new people added every day is in single digits.
Recently, European countries have ushered in an outbreak period, and the spread of the virus is shocking. In the past two weeks, the number of cases outside of China has increased 13 times. On March 11, Central European Time, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tan Desai announced that the new crown epidemic can be assessed as a "pandemic."
Under the current situation, the prevention and control of the epidemic is no longer the task of a single country. Under the community with a shared future for mankind, the whole world is the same. This requires the countries affected by the epidemic to adopt strict control measures as soon as possible to prevent the spread of the virus. All citizens must strengthen their awareness of self-protection and try to avoid gatherings.
On March 12, at a press conference held by the Information Office of the People's Government of Guangdong Province, Academician Zhong Nanshan stated that the epidemic may end in June, provided that other countries, like China, attach importance to the new crown pneumonia epidemic at the national level. "I have communicated with many countries and regions, and after the exchanges, I found that there are still gaps in our views."
Zhang Wenhong, director of the Department of Infectious Diseases at Huashan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University, also said: “It is difficult to copy internationally. In fact, no country has the courage to use the most resolute means and strictest discipline at the cost of economic shutdown for two months. Isolation (closure of the epidemic area, nationwide suspension, and community blockade) for 2-4 weeks to completely suffocate the infected, and the final effect is that the virus is completely suffocated."
Previously, Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund's Champions League knockout match was held empty, but before the start of the game, a large number of Paris fans gathered in the city center, singing and dancing waiting for the upcoming game. During the game, the fans gathered outside to cheer for the home team were shown on the big screen inside the stadium. After the game, Kulzava also joined the fan carnival team.
France has previously banned group activities with more than 1,000 people, but the relevant authorities still approved the request of the fan organization, on the grounds that these 2,000-3,000 fans are "natural" activities and are not organized and organized in the stadium stands. Gathering, therefore, the “prohibition of collective activities with more than 1,000 people” does not apply.
Fortunately, as the epidemic situation further intensified, European and American countries and people realized the seriousness of the problem and successively adopted blockade measures. Italy, where the epidemic is severe, has been blocked across the country, and Spain and the United States have also declared a state of emergency.
After experiencing the life and death test of World War II and witnessing the cruelty of the war, Liverpool's legend Shankly once left a famous saying: football has nothing to do with life and death, football is higher than life and death. According to the legend of the Red Army, football has been sublimated into people's spiritual totem in the cruel years of war.
In the face of a vicious virus, physical health always comes first. Football has nothing to do with life and death. It should take a back seat at this moment; and in these difficult years,
