Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on “Good Morning America” Tuesday that the packed Texas Rangers baseball stadium is "concerning" and "risky."
On Monday, the Texas Rangers played their home opener with 100% capacity at the ballpark. No other MLB teams are allowing more than 50% capacity attendance.
“That’s concerning,” Fauci told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos when shown images of the game. “We certainly want to see baseball start getting back into the style that we’re used to it, but you want to do that gradually, you know, a few thousand at a time. But to just start right off, just essentially pulling that plug, I’m a bit concerned about that. I mean they’re taking a chance. It’s risky. I hope we don’t see any deleterious consequences of that.”
