    Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the top U.S. infectious disease experts during the COVID-19 pandemic, said on Thursday that he has not been advising president-elect Joe Biden or had contact with his coronavirus transition team and said he sees no reason to quit to join that effort. Fauci stressed he’s not a politician and does “public health things,” and stressed there was “absolutely no reason and no sense at all for me to stop doing something in the middle of a pandemic that is playing a major role in helping us get out of the pandemic.” The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases also discussed recent vaccine developments, including Pfizer and Moderna, saying it was a “home run for the Pfizer product,” and he has “every reason to believe” the Moderna product would be similar. The next big question, he added, will be ensuring safety of the vaccine but it was a good sign neither the Pfizer nor the Moderna trials had to pause to investigate safety issues.

    In This Story: Allergy

    Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

    Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

    Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

    Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
