CNN’s Jake Tapper thinks that despite a coronavirus vaccine on the horizon, Christmas should be canceled.
Tapper announced his opinion in a recent interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who, implied that even with the deployment of an effective COVID-19 vaccine, Americans must continue wearing masks and following public health orders.
“We can’t abandon fundamental public health measures,” he said. “You can approach a degree of normality while still doing some fundamental public health things that synergize with the vaccine to get us back to normal.”
While Tapper originally asked Fauci about safely planning holiday celebrations, he ignored Fauci’s answer that “it depends on several factors,” and continued to push the issue.
“So not until the second or third quarter of 2021 though,” Tapper began. “Christmas is probably not going to be possible.”
