Don’t worry, kids, Santa Claus will still make his magical trek around the world on Christmas Eve. And he would become a superspreader in the process, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
According to USA Today, Dr. Fauci has determined that Ol’ St. Nick “has a lot of good innate immunity,” making him protected from coronavirus and unable to spread the virus.
While Fauci has said the holiday season this year should be celebrated without traditional family gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID among us mere mortals, the nation’s leading expert of infectious diseases gave the okay for the Jolly Old Elf to slide down chimneys to deliver gifts to good girls and boys.
Fauci did not comment on the dangers to Rudolph and the other reindeer.
