CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta explained why President Donald Trump's upcoming indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this weekend is "the worst-case scenario" for the spread of the coronavirus.

Gupta broke down the different levels of risk of contracting the contagion at gatherings in an appearance on Monday's broadcast of "The Lead," telling host Jake Tapper how the threat increases in relation to how many people attend an event, its location (indoors or outside) and guests' adherence to social distancing measures.

"The highest risk sort of scenario would be sort of the situation we're talking about here," Gupta said of Trump's planned campaign event at the 19,000-capacity BOK Center, which multiple medical professionals and public health experts have warned against attending.
