Dr. Anthony Fauci said about the Supreme Court’s ruling that New York can’t restrict capacity at religious gatherings to 10 or 25 people that it would cause “considerable risk for acquisition and spread” of the virus.
Fauci made the comments on ABC’s “This Week” after Martha Raddatz asked how concerned he was about the impact of striking down these rules.
“There’s nothing I can do about it,” Fauci said about the courts striking down restrictions.
“I just keep saying when people ask me for opinions on specific things, rather than comment on specific things, I can say it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are when you have congregate settings, particularly indoors when people are not wearing masks that is a considerable risk for acquisition and spread of infection,” he said. “No matter what the circumstance is, that’s a risk.”
While Fauci is only concerned with the spread of the virus, religious leaders have other considerations, like the spiritual health of their participants.
