The coronavirus, called COVID-19 by the World Health Organization, is a contagious virus that can spread from person to person. According to the Washington Post, there have been more than 20,000 confirmed cases in the United States as of Saturday. Of those cases, 10,356 are in New York. In a recent video, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones expressed his gratitude to everyone that’s going through this coronavirus pandemic, here’s what he said:
Since the season doesn’t start until September, the NFL hasn’t made a decision to postpone games. However, the coronavirus has had an effect on this year’s NFL Draft. The league has said that the draft will be televised but with no “public events”.
A majority of the NFL is having their employees work from home to help minimize the spread of the virus. In addition, The NFL Players Association has already announced that team facilities will be closed to players for at least two weeks.
As for Jones, his future with the Giants looks very bright. This past season, he completed 61.9 percent of his passes for 3,027 yards and 24 touchdowns to 12 interceptions.
