A new condition related to the coronavirus pandemic is sweeping the United States: Fauci fever. Dr. Anthony Fauci has become an unlikely celebrity in his role as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, where he has led the medical response to COVID-19 and tried to inform an anxious nation. Fans can buy doughnuts with an image of the doctor or “Fauci Spring” beer from a Georgia brewery. There's a stuffed Fauci doll with a superhero cape and a Fauci bobblehead. Money from the sale of each bobblehead is supposed to help purchase protective face masks for medical workers.
