Coronavirus Chief Dr. Anthony Fauci Faces Grilling from … NBA Superstar Steph Curry?
FAUCI: "Well, with other viruses like seasonal influenza that we get confronted with every year, and other coronaviruses that are more benign, typical common cold, what you said is true. As the weather gets warmer, viruses tend to do poorly in warm, moist weather, and do quite well in cold, dry weather. And that's one of the reasons why in addition to the fact that in the warm weather you're more outside and not confined in a room, that these kind of respiratory viruses tend to go down as you get into the summer months. The only issue is, Steph, we don't know whether this is going to happen with this virus because this is the first time we've veer dealt with this virus. So it's not an unreasonable assumption to think that it's going to go down but you don't want to count on it."
