National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Dr. Anthony Fauci will be joining children’s channel Nickelodeon this weekend for COVID-themed “Nick News Breaks.”
Not one to miss an opportunity to deliver propaganda to adolescents, Dr. Fauci agreed to film four one-minute segments designed to discuss COVID-19 with children.

Nick, TeenNick, Nicktoons and Nickelodeon’s social media will all be airing the clips. According to The Hill, in one video, a 6-year-old girl named Ella asks Fauci when she can play with her friends again.
Instead of telling her she can play with her friends now because her age group is not at serious risk from the novel coronavirus, the doctor said, “You know Ella I would hope that by the time we get to the late spring and early summer you could start having play dates. So hang on a little bit longer. We’re going in the right direction.”
