They are calling the group the Bulls are in the Delete Eight.

That's good. Someone should make t-shirts.

That's 5% of the league

Does this include the ones who tested positive initially or is this in addition to it?

This is a leak of medical info so not certain, but this sounds like it was one of the rounds of "Test everyone all at once" done before the league started its 14 day pre-season quarantine done on June 23. I think this is just right now.

Edit: nvm, not a leak, here's your official version.

Does this mean active infection or is this an antibody test?

Those are active infections right now, thank Florida.

Would be curious - is the NBA also doing full antibody testing (I would think at a minimum teams would want to get a good perspective of who may have immunity - albeit who knows how long it lasts). Also would be curious, if you got it initially and it was asymptomatic, does that mean the next team you get it, it would also be or not.

Do you mean “next time” or team? That last sentence is a bit odd.

If you mean “next time”, we don’t know but we hope so. We’ve seen that there are some examples of people actually getting it a few months apart in this country since it’s spreading rapidly enough that people can actually be exposed a couple times, but no real way yet to do any sort of statistical analysis of those cases. One was reported from Dallas this week. It probably will be less intense if you get a second infection because the body knows how to fight it, but some of the severe cases are because the immune system overreacts, hard to know how common those would be on a second exposure (think about severe allergic responses for that, if you’re allergic to bee stings, the second time you get stung often triggers a more intense immune response than the first).

Yeah - I meant next time they got infected.
