Dr. Megan Ranney, an emergency physician and associate professor of emergency medicine at Brown University, said there are concerns that President Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday could be a “super spreader event.”
“I know the arena was only about a third full last night, but unfortunately that did not seem to be because of social distancing. As you showed, those folks were packed together,” Ranney told CNN today.
Ranney pointed to the six Trump campaign staffers who reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 prior to the rally, and said that it is likely we will see new cases arise from attendees.
“If there were even a couple of cases in the arena last night, we’re most likely going to see a spread among folks that attended. And then they’re going to go back to their states and it’s going to spread further,” Ranney warned.
