Fauci, Curry talk on Instagram, as Obama watches

Kramer Phillips By Kramer Phillips | 7 months ago

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors held a half-hour talk on Instagram to discuss all things related to the coronavirus with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

More than 50,000 viewers were logged in for much of the talk — among them, former President Barack Obama, a very big basketball fan.

Curry asked Fauci when it might be time to start thinking about sports again. Fauci told Curry “when the country as a whole has turned that corner,” and the curve that shows how the virus is still spreading nationally starts coming down.

That, Fauci said, is when “we can start thinking about getting back to some degree of normality.”

Obama added his thoughts by posting in the comment section during the talk, saying “Listen to the science. Do your part and take care of each other. Thank you, Steph and Dr. Fauci.”
