Both Democratic presidential candidates have canceled rallies as the spread of the coronavirus continues in the United States.
From March 10 testimony in the House Oversight Committee:
REP. GLENN GROTHMAN (R-WI): Is the NBA underreacting, or is the Ivy League overreacting?
DR. ANTHONY FAUCI, director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health: We would recommend that there not be large crowds. If that means not having any people in the audience when the NBA plays, so be it.
But as a public health official, anything that has large crowds is something that would give a risk to spread.
