Steph Curry interviews Dr. Anthony Fauci, with a surprise visit from Barack Obama

Nobody started this year expecting to see "Steph Curry" and "Dr. Anthony Fauci" in a headline together, but, well, here we are. In an Instagram Live session on Thursday morning, the Golden State Warriors star interviewed the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases as some 65,000 people — including former President Barack Obama and Justin Bieber — tuned in.

"This is serious business, we are not overreacting," Fauci emphasized to Curry about the COVID-19 outbreak. "I'd like to get the people in the country to realize that we're dealing with a serious problem."

Obama, in the comments, chimed in to agree: "Listen to the science," he said. "Do your part and take care of each other."
