Coronavirus: Fauci, Jordan spar about protests amid COVID-19 pandemic

Jim Jordan on Friday repeatedly questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, about whether protests increase the spread of COVID-19 and if they should be limited by the government. Fauci would not answer directly, saying he is not in a position to determine “what the government can do in a forceful way,” but that crowding when not wearing masks contributes to the spread of the virus. Anti-racism protests have been occurring in cities across the U.S. following the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn., on Memorial Day.
