Fauci on possibility of full NFL season: “The virus will make the decision for us”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said “the virus will make the decision for us” in response to a question on whether or not the NFL should expect to play out their full 2020 season.
In an interview with NBCSports, Fauci expanded that the NFL has the summer months to see how the virus narrative plays out.
“I think it’s feasible that negative testing players could play to an empty stadium. Is it guaranteed? No way . . . It’s going to depend. Like, right now, if you fast forward, and it is now September. The season starts. I say you can’t have a season — it’s impossible. There’s too much infection out there. It doesn’t matter what you do. But I would hope that by the time you get to September it’s not gonna be the way it is right now.”
