    Surprise

    Quite surprising. Lindsey was pretty popular and was quickly becoming one of the “faces” of the Suns.

    It is surprising she was furloughed with the season starting up soon.

    Your point just shows you haven't been personally touched by anyone who has actually died from this virus. I'm not saying there isn't hysteria here in America, but minimizing it as "political" is a terrible mistake.

    I personally know several people who have died. My Mother in law and father in law in their nineties are recovering from it. My wife and son both have it and are quarantining from it away from me. I have not seen them in weeks. I can vouch this is real! Wear your mask so it covers your nose and mouth! Wash your hands! Be safe!

    Uhmmm, I have had it, my wife had it. My mother in law is one of the main medical directors in the nation. If she said it’s political it’s political.

    Have 11,331 died in Romania from Covid? Romania is one of the poorest nations in Europe. They get 35,000 euro a pop for putting it on a death certificate. Audits show less then 500 have died from the Virus itself 2020 isn’t any higher for death rates in Romania from infectious diseases for the past ten years. I’m not a Covid denier but I’m also not a Covid fear monger. It’s hear it can be deadly but is on par with other respiratory diseases of the same nature.

    It’s political worldwide? Well that seems an ill-informed comment.

    Ah the pay for Covid fallacy that paints the healthcare system that is struggling against the pandemic as greedy corrupt individuals. Well played . . . four months ago when that idiocy tried to gain traction amongst the conspiracy theorists.

    No of course not, but harsh measures are political. Each nation has there own policies on it, you have Sweden which has causally no policy other then to be mindful and wash your hands, to England which is dranconian to Romania which has strong measures that few follow.

    Those aren’t “political” - those are different approaches to the pandemic. Some more effective than others. I think you’d likely label most of Asia’s countries measures as draconian but they’ve been effective.

    We have social medicine it’s not about individuals at all they could care less. It’s about keeping the revenue to keep the system alive. I’m not familiar with any conspiracy theory surrounding this.

    I prefer to follow the science.

    I'm not into conspiracy theories. COVID-19 is a pandemic. That means it's worldwide. Why would the whole world make it up for Romania to get some Euros?
