The NFL is set to postpone multiple games due to a COVID outbreak.
The National Football League is set to postpone several games this weekend due to a surge in COVID-19 infections, according to CNBC.
The move comes as COVID infections and hospitalizations are rising once again. “The cases are going up,” Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday.
“We have an average of about 117,000 cases. We have an increase the percentage of hospitalizations. Deaths are still over a thousand. Then you have, looking over your shoulder, the Omicron variant, which we know, from what’s going on in South Africa and in the UK, is a highly transmissible virus,” Fauci said.
The two games that have been rescheduled so far are:
Seahawks vs Rams
Eagles vs Washington Football Team
The NFL is highly vaccinated.
As of Dec. 15, the NFL’s COVID-19 vaccination rate was 94.6% of NFL players are vaccinated; nearly 100% of NFL personnel are vaccinated.
