Team Sports More of a COVID Threat than Classrooms: Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says team sports play a larger role in the spreading of the coronavirus among younger people than sitting in a classroom.

“We’re finding out that it’s team sports where kids are getting together, you know, obviously many without masks, that are driving it, rather than in the classroom spread,” the president’s chief medical adviser said Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CNN reported. “When you go back and take a look and try and track where these clusters of cases are coming from in the school, it’s just that.”

Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidelines for physical distancing in schools during the coronavirus pandemic, decreasing the recommended distance between children from six feet to three feet.

As of Tuesday, the U.S. has roughly 31 million coronavirus cases and 556,000 deaths — both tops globally — according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
