Tulsa's health director among other medical professionals has raised concerns over Trump's campaign rally being organised in the state when COVID-19 is still a threat to the society.
Dr Anthony Fauci has previously encouraged people who choose to attend President's rally to wear a face mask at all times but noted that the best thing to do is to avoid crowded places.
Even though President Trump's reelection campaign has denied taking any responsibility if rally visiitors contract Coronavirus, its manager Brad Parscale has listed some precautions that have places for event.
Before entering the venue, each guest will have to get their body temperature checked, along with complimentary hand sanitizers and face masks. Brad mentioned that more than one million people have already requested tickets for the MAGA rally and informed that there will be arrangements for the bottled water and precautions for heat.
Moreover, while health experts have repeatedly warned that sudden resurgence of COVID-19 infection could occur in regions where the Coronavirus cases seem to decline, Dr Anthony Fauci has assured that the United States might not witness the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
