Fauci: Santa Claus will not bring any infectious diseases to anyone.
“Santa Claus will not bring any infectious diseases to anyone.” The coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, Fauci, the top infectious disease expert in the United States, said recently before Christmas.
Recently, Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told USA Today: “Santa Claus will not be affected by this, because Santa Claus has many good qualities. He is also very immune innate, so Santa Claus will not bring any infectious diseases to anyone.
The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States continues to spread, with more than 11.85 million confirmed cases and more than 250,000 deaths.
As the traditional holiday Christmas approaches, some people are beginning to worry about whether Santa Claus, who quietly sends gifts to children on Christmas Eve, will catch the coronavirus.
The traditional image of Santa Claus is a fat white-bearded old man, and some studies show that the elderly and overweight people are at higher risk of contracting the novel coronavirus.
