NBA All-Star Curry Holds Instagram Q&A with Fauci About COVID-19
More than 50,000 people watched Golden State Warriors guard and two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Steph Curry talk with NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci about COVID-19 on Instagram Live. The event took place Mar. 26.
During the chat, Curry asked Fauci several questions, including one about what needs to happen before people can attend large gatherings again.
“You need to see the trajectory of the curve start to go down,” Fauci told Curry. “We can start thinking about getting back to some degree of normality when the country as a whole has turned that corner and started coming down. Then you can pinpoint cases much more easily than getting overwhelmed by cases, which is what’s going on in New York City.”
Before the chat, Curry tweeted, “Hyped to talk all things COVID-19 with Dr. Fauci of the @NIAIDNews tomorrow.” He encouraged his followers to submit questions using the hashtag #SCASKSFAUCI.
