It is shown that the repulsive core present in realistic two-body potentials and in hard spheres leads to the rapid suppression of the effects of statistics in the second virial coefficient, except at very low temperatures. For hard spheres, an upper bound is obtained which goes down exponentially with temperature when the latter becomes large.
