Dr. Anthony Fauci Reveals Santa Claus Is The Only One Immune From Coronavirus

Dr. Anthony Fauci is giving us some hope for Christmas, and letting us know that Santa Claus might be the only one immune to coronavirus.

In a new interview with USA Today, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases revealed that the pandemic won’t stop St. Nicholas from spreading Christmas spirit around the world.

“Santa is exempt from this because Santa, of all the good qualities, has a lot of good innate immunity,” Dr. Fauci shared. “Santa is not going to be spreading any infections to anybody.”

Of course, while Santa might be immune, the country will look a little different as far as holiday gatherings go, as many officials advise families to celebrate with their immediate kin right now in an attempt to stop the spread and lower the number of cases.

“The tragedy that could happen is one of your family members, from coming together in a family gathering, could wind up hospitalized and severely ill and could die. We don’t want to see that happen. This year we’re asking people to be as safe as possible,” said the CDC’s Dr. Henry Walke.

Moderna's Coronavirus Vaccine in Almost 95% Effective in Early Studies

There is some amazing news this Monday morning – Moderna’s Coronavirus vaccine is almost 95% effective!

“These are obviously very exciting results,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, top infectious disease doctor, said (via CNN). “It’s just as good as it gets — 94.5% is truly outstanding.”

“It was one of the greatest moments in my life and my career. It is absolutely amazing to be able to develop this vaccine and see the ability to prevent symptomatic disease with such high efficacy,” Dr. Tal Zacks, Moderna’s chief medical officer also said.

The vaccine will begin to be distributed in December to health care workers and will be given to other high risk groups in terms of priority.

“I think that everybody else will start to get vaccinated towards the end of April,” Dr. Fauci added. “And that will go into May, June, July. It will take a couple of months to do.”

This news is similar to the news about Pfizer Inc’s COVID-19 vaccine, which has also been discovered to be extremely effective in preventing the disease.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Estimates United States Could Get Back to Relative Normality by This Date

Dr. Anthony Fauci is providing an estimated timeline on the United States’ relative return to normalcy.

The country’s top infectious expert opened up to CNN about estimated timelines on Sunday (November 15).

During the interview, he said he believed the U.S. could start getting back to relative normality by the second or third quarter of next year – around April or July of 2021. He also said gatherings could happen again dependent on a number of factors, including vaccines.

He discussed Pfizer’s announcement of a vaccine that has proven to be more than 90% effective.

“That’s great, but we have to get people to take the vaccine. So, if we get the overwhelming majority of people taking the vaccine, and you have on the one hand an effective vaccine, on the other hand, a high degree of uptake of the vaccine, we could start getting things back to relative normal as we get into the second and third quarter of the year, where people can start thinking about doing things that were too dangerous just months ago,” he explained.

He added that America “can’t just wish it happening,” adding that vaccines must be deployed and public health measures must still be followed.

It was recently revealed over a hundred of these White House-adjacent officers are either quarantining or testing positive amid the pandemic.

Kim Kardashian Organized a Zoom Call with Dr. Fauci & Lots of A-List Stars Back in April

Dr. Anthony Fauci participated in a Zoom call with dozens of A-List celebrities at the beginning of the pandemic and it was just revealed that Kim Kardashian organized the call.

Fauci told CNN that the stars “wanted to know about masks and social distancing and whether it was safe to eat take-out food.”

Among the stars on the call were Kim, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk, 2 Chainz, and more.

“It was a whole bunch of movie stars and some sports figures and they wanted to know about what they could do to stay safe, about wearing masks and avoiding crowds,” Fauci said. “I was impressed by the questions they asked, by their level of sophistication.”

The call happened at the end of April and Fauci says he agreed to participate because these people all have large platforms that they can use to spread information to fans.

“Each of them has enormous numbers of followers on their social media accounts. I could say to them, for example, it’s important to wear a mask, and they get on their accounts and say ‘wear a mask’ and it goes out to an additional couple of million people,” he said.

CNN sources says that Kim reached out to organize the call when Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said that he wanted Kylie Jenner to help people understand that the virus is serious.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Refutes Trump's Claims About Coronavirus: 'It's Not a Good Situation'

Dr. Anthony Fauci is speaking out against President Donald Trump‘s claims.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and member of the White House coronavirus task force warned that the United States is “in for a whole lot of hurt” amid spiking coronavirus cases, despite Trump‘s claims that the country is “rounding the turn” on the pandemic.

“We’re in for a whole lot of hurt. It’s not a good situation. All the stars are aligned in the wrong place as you go into the fall and winter season, with people congregating at home indoors. You could not possibly be positioned more poorly,” he told the Washington Post, as the country reached a record-breaking 99,784 new infections as of the past weekend.

While he said hospitals are “much better prepared,” “it’s much more about some of the states like Utah, Nevada, South Dakota, North Dakota, where … they never had a pretty good reserve of intensive care beds and things like that. I hope they’ll be okay, but it’s still a risk that, as you get more surging, they’re going to run out of capacity.”

“The idea of this false narrative that if you don’t die, everything is hunky dory is just not the case. But to say, ‘Let people get infected, it doesn’t matter, just make sure people don’t die’ — to me as a person who’s been practicing medicine for 50 years, it doesn’t make any sense at all,” he continued.

He went on to criticize the President’s strategizing and priority of “the economy and reopening the country” and revealed they no longer speak daily.

“Right now, the public health aspect of the task force has diminished greatly,” he said.

White House spokesman Judd Deere issued a statement to People in response: “It’s unacceptable and breaking with all norms for Dr. Fauci, a senior member of the President’s Coronavirus Taskforce and someone who has praised President Trump’s actions throughout this pandemic, to choose three days before an election to play politics.”

Trump also suggested Dr. Fauci‘s role might be coming to an end at a recent rally.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Reveals When Life Might Go Back to Normal After Coronavirus Vaccine

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the 79-year-old director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is revealing when there may be a sense of normalcy again after a Coronavirus vaccine is administered to the general public.

He’s projecting perhaps the end of 2021 or even into 2022 that life may resume as normal.

“If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year [2022], before we start having some semblances of normality,” Dr. Fauci said during a University of Melbourne panel (via CNN).

“When we were trying to open up the economy again, or open up the country … and I was very much involved with Dr. Deborah Birx and putting together these guidelines, which were a gateway of Phase 1, Phase 2 – to tell you how you can gradually safely and prudently open up the country.” he said. “If everybody had done that uniformly, I don’t think we would be in the position we’re in right now.”

Dr. Fauci added, “Masks in the United States have almost become a political statement, and I know that was carried in the news globally, it was really … very, very difficult. In fact, people were ridiculed for their mask, depending upon which side of a particular political spectrum you were at.”
