Is Dr. Fauci Canceling Thanksgiving?


Dr. Anthony Fauci is not having Thanksgiving dinner with his family this year. However, contrary to media reports, the 79-year old scientist is not "canceling Thanksgiving." Fauci said his decision not to have Thanksgiving is not a mandate against the gathering. "That doesn't mean everybody should be calling Thanksgiving off." He stated that many should consider it. Fauci and the CDC's Dr. Robert Redfield have already warned small gatherings are driving an uptick in coronavirus cases around the country. "That's the exact scenario that you're going to see in Thanksgiving," he said Ultimately, people have to weigh the risks of coming together for Thanksgiving this year for themselves.

But the nightmarish conditions haven't stopped the state's Republican senator from keeping his Thanksgiving holiday plans on track. Business Insider reports Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted an insensitive graphic depicting a turkey with the words 'come and take it' below it. The tweet suggests he has no intention of following the advice of health officials this coming holiday.

  • How To Celebrate Thanksgiving More Safely In A COVID-19 Pandemic

    As Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and other winter holidays approach, the US is battling a record-breaking surge of coronavirus infections. Business Insider reports Dr. Anthony Fauci says small indoor gatherings are driving new spread, so people should consider avoiding them. You get one person who's asymptomatic and infected, and then all of a sudden four or five people in that gathering are infected. That's the exact scenario that you're going to see in Thanksgiving. Dr. Anthony Fauci Most public health experts generally agree that time spent together should be limited, and masks should be worn except when eating and drinking. If the gathering can't be held outside, the room should be well-ventilated and fitted with a HEPA filter. Finally, drive to your destination instead of flying or taking the train. You'll be able to control your environment better that way. Happy holidays!

But according to Business Insider, the daughters intend to stay right where they are, in various cities across the country that aren't low in COVID-19 cases. Fauci said in a webinar hosted by American University that his daughters want to protect him from the novel coronavirus. The seemingly tireless doctor is 79 years old.
