Dr. Anthony Fauci – the man who has President Donald Trump’s ear – says sports could resume soon only under limitations.
Fauci made the comments to Snapchat’s Peter Hamby saying “Nobody comes to the stadium. “Put (players) in big hotels wherever you want to play. Keep them very well surveilled… but have them tested every week.”
Fauci’s comments come a week after 72% of Americans polled by Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business said they would not attend if sporting events resumed without a vaccine for the coronavirus. Just 13% of Americans said they would feel comfortable attending games the way they had in the past. A second poll this week had a slight plurality, 46% to 36%, saying the NFL season should not open as scheduled in early September.
