The coronavirus pandemic should’ve been taken seriously from the get-go. But, professional sports has reached a level of serious concern after the NBA suspended its season shortly after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for COVID-19. Even though a majority of the world opened its eyes to the outbreak, there are still those who are downplaying the virus in a blind and downright arrogant manner. Most of us were thinking about it, but NFL Network’s Kyle Brandt used his national platform to take a shot at those “corona tough guys.”
There is a social pandemic going on, too. The Corona Tough Guy.

Well said, Kyle.
This isn’t the common cold or flu. The coronavirus is something much more serious than that. And those individuals who scoff at it, saying that “it only affects older people,” Brandt poured water on the flames of that ignorance. Excuse us for not wanting to put our family members in danger, especially those who are senior citizens. This is scary stuff.

You can use this message from Brandt to navigate through this pandemic. Be careful when out in public and if you don’t feel well, please stay home for the betterment of yourselves and millions of others.
