    A “Fire Fauci” chant erupted at one of President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies, with the president quipping that he’d wait until after the election if he were to do anything. The chant, which started shortly after midnight Monday morning, was the latest development in Trump’s ongoing critique of Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who was once a prominent figure in Trump’s coronavirus response but who has since been marginalized. The crowd broke out in the chant as Trump complained about media coverage of the coronavirus as infections rise again in the U.S. Trump had not specifically raised Fauci in the moments before the chant. “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until a little bit after the election. I appreciate the advice, I appreciate it,” Trump replied. “No, he’s been wrong on a lot. He’s a nice man, though. He’s been wrong on a lot.” Trump has campaigned to fully reopen the U.S. economy and has rejected many public health measures designed to slow the spread of the virus. “He wants to lock down the country,” Trump said of Democrat Joe Biden at the same Florida rally. Biden is not advocating a lock-down. Biden has said he’d support lock-down measures if scientists recommended it, and that he’d do more to encourage mask-wearing. The White House criticized Fauci on Sunday after he warned in a Washington Post interview published over the weekend about the scale of the pandemic in the U.S.

    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.
