Following a new study released by the Centers for Disease Control suggesting a connection between the spread of COVID-19 and going out to eat, the top immunologist in the nation has called for continued shutdowns.

In an interview with MSNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci said bars and restaurants should remain closed until the spread of COVID-19 can be maintained in areas of the nation seeing rising cases.

‘When you have restaurants, indoors, in a situation where you have a high degree of infection in the community, you’re not wearing masks, that’s a problem,’ Dr Fauci said.

‘Bars are a really important place of spreading infection, there’s not doubt about that.’
