  • With Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch of the Washington Nationals home opener against the New York Yankees, President Donald Trump hosted Yankees’ pitching legend Mariano Rivera at the White House Thursday.

    Trump is a golfer, but a big baseball fan as well, and the two men played pitch and catch on the South Lawn of the White House while a number of school-age baseball players from different teams did the same.

    “It’s an honor to have you at the White House as you’re my friend and a very special person, great athlete,” the president said.

    When asked by a reporter if he was concerned that Juan Soto, an outfielder for the Nationals, has tested positive for COVID-19, Trump said the Nationals would be able to handle it.

    During Trump’s daily briefing on the coronavirus, he told reporters that Yankees’ President Randy Levine had invited him to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on August 15th.

    “I’ve agreed,” the president said.

    Many U.S. colleges have announced they’re scaling back, or eliminating, their fall sports schedules due to the outbreak, Trump applauded professional sports Leagues for resuming play.

    “It’s a tremendous thing psychologically for our country,” Trump said.

    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.
