They can afford it but it’s not cost effective. Why have some big pit setup for one weekend a month. If was more of a world cup vs Europe cup they might.

The Doctor's letter is very interesting. But raises another question for me:

As stated in letter above, infection was extremely serious and so one assumes the patient followed the prescription made by the doc. As such it being issued on the 10th of March, the course of 7 days should have finished on the 17th/18th.

I read that the half life of probenicid in the body is hours to a day depending on dosage.
So does this mean that it would be undetectable in a test after more than ~24h after the last dose was taken?

If the above question's answer is yes...then why was it detected on the 24th of March, 6 days after the last dose and detected again on the 31st almost 2 weeks after the last dose...???

Half-life: the time required for any specified property (e.g. the concentration of a substance in the body) to decrease by half.

It's totally reasonable to expect that detectable amounts would remain in his system for a long time after the last dose was administered.

If i remember my stupid science bitch stuff, half life is reverse exponential (is that logarithmic?). Where for its halflife the amount of the specified property is constantly halved. So if it theres 100 pieces and the halflife is 1 minute, after 1 minute there is 50, 2 minutes,25 3 minutes 12.5 or something along those lines, until its all gone.

Its also very easy to detect traces of these substances.

Exactly this regarding half life.
