Anthony Fauci Offers Tooth Fairy 'Guarantee' To 7-Year-Old Worried About Coronavirus

The nation’s top infectious disease expert reassured the girl on Will Smith's "Will From Home" series.

Dr. Anthony Fauci had a reassuring response to a 7-year-old’s concern that the tooth fairy might be thwarted by the coronavirus pandemic.

A Los Angeles girl named Ava asked the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases if the tooth fairy would still come during the public health crisis, and whether the fairy was at risk of contracting the virus, in the latest edition of actor Will Smith’s “Will From Home” series on Snap.

“I gotta tell you Ava, I don’t think you need to worry about the tooth fairy,” Fauci responded. “So, when you get 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.”

Jacinda Ardern, the prime minister of New Zealand, offered similar reassurance earlier this month. She confirmed during a coronavirus briefing that both the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny are considered essential workers.
