Fauci: Tooth Fairy is free to move about country, is immune to coronavirus
The medical expert took questions from a 7-year-old on Will Smith's Snapchat show.
The Tooth Fairy has some wiggle room when it comes to social distancing, according to COVID-19 expert Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Fauci shared the fact while chatting with a 7-year-old girl named Ava on Will Smith’s new Snapchat series “Will From Home.”
“Can the tooth fairy still come if I lose my tooth because of the coronavirus? And can she catch the virus?” Ava asked.
Fauci, who is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, promised Ava that she had nothing to worry about.
“When your tooth (falls) out, you stick it under the pillow, and I’ll guarantee you that that Tooth Fairy is not going to get infected and is not going to get sick,” Fauci explained.
