Bridge week, a leading infectious disease specialist in the United States Anthony Fauci expressed concern about the MLB League.
“This could jeopardize the season,” Fauci said at Good Morning America, according to news agency Reuters.
“I don’t think they need to stop, but now we just have to watch this and see day by day what’s going on with the other teams.”
The MLB regular season was originally scheduled to start in late March, but due to the corona pandemic, the season only started last week. There are now significantly fewer matches played in the regular season, only 60, compared to the 162 matches normally played.
