A Fauci Fan Club? QuickTake by Bloomberg reported on how one American doctor has risen to prominence during the Covid-19 outbreak.
You’ve likely seen more of Dr. Anthony Fauci in recent weeks than your own doctor in a long time. As the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, he’s advised six presidents, helped America navigate AIDS, Ebola, H1N1 and, now, Covid-19. #Coronavirus #Covid19 #Fauci #AnthonyFauci
Since the crisis began, he’s become a major television star and everybody wants to speak to him, including NBA star Steph Curry. From cupcakes to T-shirts, fans of the Fauci Fan Club are selling merchandise with his face on it to raise money for good causes.QuickTake by Bloomberg
The turning point for many, was the subtle facepalm Fauci did during one of Donald Trump’s speeches when he made a “deep state” joke.

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.
