Current job doesn't require me to travel at all.
If it did, my course count would be higher. They just send certain communications to the entire organization.

DGCR lists zero courses in India and China. Man, if someone really wants to grow the sport, that's a couple billion potential frolfers.

Yes Bogey, I'm sure you could have made travel plans to India with international disc golf layovers in Europe, etc.

On topic: As bad as the official case counts and death counts are in India, my understanding is that the real numbers are considerably worse, perhaps even multiple times worse.

Yeah, they have nothing on the North Korean numbers.

I wonder why those oscillate between one and zero all the time

On a vacation in Florida at the moment.

Perhaps it’s specific to the island we are on, but there was a road sign reminding people to mask as we entered town, and most everyone is still masking indoors. The grocery store had all the staff still masked, but restaurant we went to last night didn’t have the staff masked up. Still the tables were still separated, and the restaurant is basically open air anyway, with the doors open most of the time to the outdoor seating, fans going, etc.

I found it interesting given all the statements about Florida not having mask mandates, which is clearly separate from whether people actually end up doing it. There is a complex conversation to be had about what it takes to tip social behavior into a new mode, which then becomes resilient regardless of the precise details of all the specific locations.

Interesting report, thanks for posting.

There was a study early in the pandemic that showed people generally started taking precautions when cases spiked, often before state/local governments imposed mandates. So yes, social behavior is complex.

I hope people study this issue thoroughly so we have the tools to better next time.
