Dr. Fauci warns in opposition to Tremendous Bowl events: ‘simply lay low and funky it’
WASHINGTON (AP) – The nation’s leading infectious disease expert doesn’t want the Super Bowl to become a super spreader.
Dr. Anthony Fauci says when it comes to Super Bowl parties during the pandemic, people should “just lie quietly and cool off”.

During the television interviews on Wednesday, he said that now is not the time to invite people to guard parties as they may be infected with the coronavirus and make others sick.
Big events like Sunday’s game in Tampa, Florida between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers always give cause for concern about the potential for virus spread, Fauci said.
“You don’t want parties with people you haven’t had much contact with,” he told NBC’s “Today” show. “You just don’t know if they’re infected. As difficult as that is, at least this time, just lie down and cool it off.”
