Dr. Sanjay Gupta explained on CNN the potential consequences of President Donald Trump’s upcoming indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma that is expected to draw 19,000 people:
The highest risk sort of scenario would be sort of the situation we’re talking about here. Indoors, attendees coming from all these various areas, difficult to practice physical distancing, and who knows about what the mask sort of wearing is going to be.
There’s no question. I mean, this is a contagious virus. Indoors is going to be far worse than outdoors. Not wearing masks a lot worse than wearing masks. Not keeping distance if they’re filled to capacity. There is no magic here. There is no scientific proclamation where you’re going to have some sort of revelation about this. That’s the worst-case scenario.
Basically if there is a person there who has the virus, the idea that it could spread and turn into a super spreading event would be a big concern.
