Doctors warn Santa at risk…..
Christmas 2020 will be unlike any other, but good boys and girls can rest assured that Santa Claus will still visit after he has been given the all clear by the doctor to fly across the world to deliver all the presents.
Professor Emer Shelley, the dean of the Faculty of Public Health Medicine at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, said travel restrictions would not apply to Father Christmas and he can visit as usual, even if people have to have smaller family gatherings.
“Everybody is asleep when Santa Claus calls, so he’s not going to come across anybody when he travels all around the world from Lapland,” she told ITV’s Good Morning Britain programme.
“Secondly, he travels so quickly that even if a part of his entourage were to have the virus attached to them, there is no risk of transmitting the virus to anybody … so at least that’s some good news on the public health front.”
This will come as very good news to every child across the world who will be awaiting his visit come Christmas Eve.
