Warriors’ Stephen Curry to moderate coronavirus panel, with Anthony Fauci answering questions from fans
Sports
With the NBA encouraging players to learn more about the coronavirus outbreak through trusted sources, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has turned to one of the world’s most trusted experts: Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Curry will host a panel with Fauci at 1 p.m. ET Thursday on Instagram Live. Fauci will answer questions about COVID-19 from Curry and fans.

Fauci has become a household name during the pandemic, speaking almost daily during White House briefings on the coronavirus. And Fauci has not been shy about correcting President Donald Trump during those briefings.

The NBA was the first professional sports league to suspend its season due to the disease after Utah Jazz centre Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus two weeks ago.

Curry has also been involved with other efforts involving the coronavirus. The Warriors’ owners, players and coaches pledged to donate $1 million (U.S.) to their foundation to help with paying arena and concession workers. Curry donated an undisclosed amount of money through his foundation, “Eat, Learn, Play,” to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, which plans to provide more than one million meals to children while schools are closed.
