(RAIR FOUNDATION) – Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAD) addressed the John Snow Society for their Annual Pumphandle Lecture on September 8, 2021, hosted by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and moderated by Professor Jimmy Whitworth.
Fauci said that there has been an “increased transmission in gymnasiums” as well as an “increased transmission in choirs within churches”, which have been exposed, he said via “clinical experience”: "And as we now know from clinical experience, the risk is greatest in enclosed spaces with poor ventilation and during behaviors such as exercise, hence the increased transmission in gymnasiums; Singing, hence increased transmission in choirs within churches and prolonged indoor exposures. ..."
Available studies backing up his statements are scant, at best.
