NBA to continue amidst COVID-19
To contain the spread of coronavirus, global authorities have canceled or postponed all sporting events until it is safe to resume. This has stumped sporting fans all over the world who look forward to seeing their favorite teams competing for the winning trophy each year.

Well, we have some good news for them!

After months of debating, the NBA has announced the continuation of their season with the playoffs starting from July 31st.

In normal circumstances, the month of June is reserved for the NBA finals. However, to ensure the safety of players, officials, and the spectators amidst COVID-19 – the basketball game was called off in March.  But now, the NBA is planning to bring the games back.

According to news sources, the top 22 teams – from the 30 in the league – would be invited to come, live, and play at the World Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The teams will play 8 seeding games to fill the 16-team playoffs bracket, after which the playoffs would start.

As a coronavirus safety precaution, coaches, players, and staff would be required to keep themselves quarantined for the duration of the games. Regular COVID-19 tests will also be conducted for the individuals involved with the game.

However, the officials have not announced the protocols that would follow if any positive case of the virus was detected. Nevertheless, the NBA assures necessary precautions will be in place to safeguard their members.
And this goes without saying that the NBA would be played without any crowd.

Similarly, the Bundesliga in Germany was also resumed, after rigorous testing and precautionary measures were followed. Instead of a live crowd, the officials used virtual noises to motivate the players. On the other hand, NHL has canceled their season for this year and is hopeful to resume play next year.

Other games such as baseball and football in the U.S. are still contemplating if they should continue the game without spectators or call it off.
