(RightIsRight.co) – The start of college football season has many Americans excited to be cheering for their favorite teams once again. However, the flip side to this fall season is that some people, like Dr. Anthony Fuaci, are voicing concerns that overcrowded stadiums will continue to perpetuate the spread of COVID-19 and any variants.
On Tuesday, September 7, Dr. Fauci spoke with CNN’s Jim Sciutto on the show New Day, to discuss coronavirus vaccination and the dawning of the upcoming fall sports season. When speaking specifically about college football crowds, Fauci said that packing in tens of thousands of people into a stadium isn’t smart. He also emphasized schools should be mandating guests receive vaccinations prior to these events, even though they’re outside.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) noted how quick Fauci is to condemn Americans for enjoying their favorite pastime again after his involvement in the Wuhan lab:
The same Tony Fauci who funded gain-of-function research at China's Wuhan Institute of Virology is now criticizing Americans for attending college football games.

As schools open again and many Americans try to get back to life as normal, so many still struggle with the best way to respond to coronavirus variants like Delta. While Fauci may not endorse large sporting events, many do require spectators to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test. Hopefully, spectators and college football fans can find a healthy balance between safety and life as they once knew it as this next season starts.
