Major League Baseball’s postseason bubble succeeded as a defense against the novel coronavirus.

I know nothing about baseball, and I wouldn't normally comment on a baseball-related article. But I have to say, that must be some bubble. When you look at how things have been in the wider community in the US, or you look at the UK and Europe where there's always a footballer or two testing positive or having to step out because of having been in contact with Covid-19, how does the MLB do it?

There were no positive tests among 3,597 samples samples collected in the week.

And who are they testing now? There have been only two teams left since Monday. Even if you add up the (less than) 60 players, the coaches, the team staff, their families in the bubble, the press, and the workers in the mostly empty stadium, and tested each of them each day, you'd be hard pressed to come up with 3600 samples in a week.
