In such a gory situation, the only way we can help improve the situation is by taking care of ourselves and the ones around us. In fact, if just for a moment, we keep all the tragic events aside, the pandemic has taught us the importance of good hygiene and looking out for each other regardless of our backgrounds.  We’ve all become more empathetic, which can be seen as the silver lining to this dark cloud.

Syracuse’s response to Jim testing positive

Syracuse University was reportedly quite sad about their head coach, Jim, testing positive. The athletic director of the University, John Wildhack, issued a statement that said that their top priority was the athletes, coach, and other staff members’ health. He further elaborated that after Boeheim tested positive, they conducted tests for players and found that one of them was also positive.

Wildhack added that looking at the state of affairs, they had to pause all basketball-related activities. He assured that the whole team was following ACC protocols and CDC guidelines and were working with the Onondaga County Department of Health to contain the virus.  

John Wildhack’s statement caused panic among the fans who were worried about the team’s performance. Syracuse is supposed to host Bryant University in a basketball match on the 27th of November, which will mark the beginning of the 2020-21 Season. Now with Jim testing positive, everyone is scared.
