Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors will partake in a Q&A session with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the immunologist who serves as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The popular doctor, who serves as a member of the White House coronavirus Task Force addressing myths and facts about COVID-19, will answer questions mailed to Curry regarding this global pandemic. The Warriors guard announced the event on Wednesday:
Hyped to talk all things COVID-19 with Dr. Fauci of the @NIAIDNews tomorrow. This is a conversation for YOU so submit questions with #SCASKSFAUCI and join at 10am PT tomorrow (Mar 26). Let’s get it! pic.twitter.com/7DC0dty6u6

The Warriors sharpshooter has made several local donations to support children and those in need due to the coronavirus outbreak that brought the NBA season to a halt, along with the city of San Francisco.
While Dr. Fauci has already been on national TV explaining what to do and what not to do to combat this worldwide virus, this Q&A with Curry will allow the NIAID an opportunity to access a different audience.
Fauci will reach children and basketball fans hopeful to learn about how to stay safe through Curry, one of the iconic players of the NBA. A lot of people look up to the Warriors star, so it’s great that he’s using this platform to spread awareness about this pandemic sweeping across the world.
Fauci has been the informative and transparent face of what has been a haphazard attempt to educate the public on how to combat the novel coronavirus, as cases continue to increase in the United States.
The immunologist’s words have gone unabsorbed by President Donald Trump, who has managed to contradict him at times during his addresses to the nation. Yet this chat with Curry will be strictly about how to take on the coronavirus as the two-time MVP takes questions from the fans to be answered during the live Q&A.
Their chat will go live at 10 a.m. PT on Thursday, March 26 via the NIAID Twitter account.
