Dr. Fauci says Americans should skip this Thanksgiving

Dr. Fauci says Americans should skip this Thanksgiving”

"They themselves, due to their concern for me and my age, have decided they're not going to come home for Thanksgiving - even though all three of them want very much to come home for Thanksgiving", Fauci said.

"You might have to chunk the bullet and sacrifice that social gathering", he added, "except you are fairly sure that the individuals that you simply're coping with will not be contaminated both"-for instance, if they have been "very lately examined" for coronavirus or do not work together with individuals outdoors your loved ones".

"I mean, it's such a lovely tradition, Thanksgiving, of getting family together", Fauci added.

Fauci, who appeared impassioned while railing against the proposal, noted that 30 percent of the population has underlying health conditions that makes them vulnerable.

The 79-year-old top infectious diseases doctor told "CBS Evening News" on Wednesday that his three children will not be coming home for the holiday because his age puts him at increased risk.

During a campaign rally in North Carolina on Thursday, Trump nonchalantly quipped that Fauci is a "nice guy" before bringing up an imaginary quote attributed to him on mask-wearing. "There's a great deal of variability", he said.

Trump and his aide Hope Hicks, who was also recently infected with the coronavirus, did not wear masks today.

The president himself referred to as Fauci an "alarmist" throughout an interview with Chris Wallace on "Fox Information Sunday".

As for yourself, do everything you can to prevent getting-and spreading-COVID-19 in the first place: Mask, get tested if you think you have coronavirus, avoid crowds (and bars, and house parties), practice social distancing, only run essential errands, wash your hands regularly, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

With Thanksgiving just over one month away, health experts are anxious that as millions of people travel and gather to celebrate the holiday, the number of coronavirus cases will spike.

"He said, 'This is not a threat, this is not a problem, don't worry about it.' It's the craziest thing", Trump said.

"In the public square, we're seeing a higher degree of vigilance and mitigation steps in many jurisdictions", CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said.
