    Dr. Fauci Says These 3 Places Must Close to Avoid More COVID Surges

    Throughout the COVID pandemic, it's become increasingly clear that certain types of businesses in particular can pose a serious COVID risk: those that are indoors with poor ventilation where people tend to gather close together. And while most states have now reopened the majority of businesses, Anthony Fauci, MD, the nation's leading immunologist, is warning that three specific businesses should stay closed amid COVID.During an appearance on MSNBC's All In on Sept. 17, host Chris Hayes pointed out that Arizona, Texas, and New York benefitted from closing certain establishments. And Fauci said, "I totally agree" with that tactic."In fact, the CDC just came out—if you go on their website—with a figure that's really telling. It shows the odds of risk of different types of situations that give you a higher risk of transmissibility," he explained. The CDC study Fauci was referencing examined COVID cases across 11 U.S. health care facilities and looked at the ratio of patients who received negative versus positive COVID test results and where they'd been in the past two weeks. Read on to find out the three businesses that create the most COVID risk, according to the CDC and Fauci.

There's no doubt about that," Fauci told Hayes. "And that becomes particularly important if you happen to be in an area where there's a high degree of community spread."In the CDC study, 8.5 percent of people whose tests came back positive had been to a bar in the two weeks prior, compared to 5 percent of patients with negative test results. 3 RestaurantsThe CDC found that the biggest disparity between where positive COVID patients had gone versus negative COVID patients was restaurants: 40.9 percent of patients with COVID had dined out two weeks prior compared to just 27.7 percent of those who tested negative."When you have restaurants indoors in a situation where you have a high degree of infection in the community, you're not wearing masks, that's a problem," Fauci said. "So those are things that are crystal clear."

    NIH Official to Retire After He’s Exposed as RedState Editor Who Called Fauci a ‘Mask Nazi’

    William Crews, a public affairs specialist at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, will “retire” from his position after being exposed for writing online pseudonymous posts that trashed Anthony Fauci as a “mask nazi,” spewed misinformation about the pandemic and called for the public execution of health officials.“NIAID first learned of this matter this morning, and Mr. Crews has informed us of his intention to retire,” a spokesperson for the NIAID, Kathy Stover, said in a statement on Monday. “We have no further comments on this as it is a personnel matter.”Crews’ online posts were first revealed by the Daily Beast, which reported on Monday that Crews had been writing pieces for RedState, a conservative website, under the name “streiff” and was listed as the site’s managing editor. Included in his posts were comments that described Fauci, the director of the very agency Crews worked for, as “attention-grubbing and media-whoring.”Also Read: California Surpasses 15,000 COVID-19 DeathsIn another post, Crews also falsely said the pandemic was a “massive fraud perpetrated upon the American people by ‘experts’ who were determined to fundamentally change the way the country lives and is organized and governed.”“If there were justice, we’d send and [sic] few dozen of these fascists to the gallows and gibbet their tarred bodies in chains until they fall apart,” Crews wrote.It’s not immediately clear when Crews will “retire” and whether the NIAID will conduct an investigation into Crews’ conduct. Representatives for the NIAID did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.Read original story NIH Official to Retire After He’s Exposed as RedState Editor Who Called Fauci a ‘Mask Nazi’ At TheWrap
