WHO: Santa Claus can still distribute gifts "immunized against the novel coronavirus"

On November 14th, local time, in a shopping mall in Pennsylvania, a piece of resin glass stood in front of Santa Claus, and the children took a group photo with Santa Claus interactively through the glass.

Chinanews.com, December 15 According to foreign media reports, on the 14th, Maria van Kohoff, technical director of WHO’s health emergency project, said that although Santa Claus is old, he can still travel around the world and distribute gifts at Christmas because of his “immunization against the novel coronavirus”.

In response to questions from reporters during the same day’s press conference, Kohoff said, “I understand the concern about Santa because he is old”, but she said Santa Claus is “immunized” to the novel coronavirus and “we had a brief conversation with him and he is in good condition”.

But she also stressed that children should not forget to socially distance themselves with Santa Claus.

According to the statistics of the website of Johns Hopkins University in the United States, December 15, 72.66 million people have been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus and nearly 1.62 million people have died.
