How Long? (will this have to go on) - Modifying the subtitle of a 1975 hit by Ace

Some very sad announcements have been made in the last 24 hours:

  • Major League Baseball is suspended
  • The National Basketball Association has suspended play
  • The National Hockey League has suspended play
  • There will be no NCAA Basketball Tournament
  • Broadway shows are closed.
  • Large gatherings are forbidden
The number of cases of Corona Virus infection is growing every day.  It spreads more rapidly than seasonal flu.  The rate of fatalities is also higher.  Drastic actions are necessary to protect the health and well-being of the public.

I have tickets to see the Tina Turner show on March 28th and the New York Mets on March 29.  It is obvious that those events will be canceled.

The big questions is how long will these restrictions be in effect?  Obviously, nobody knows.  I hope that the number of reported infections will go down dramatically so things will be normalized.
