WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 01: Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases listens as U.S. President Donald Trump speaks from the press briefing room with members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force April 1, 2020 in Washington, DC. After announcing yesterday that COVID-19 could kill between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans, the Trump administration is also contending with the economic effects of the outbreak as the stock market continues to fall, businesses remain closed, and companies lay off and furlough employees.

Move over, John Legend, there is another man coming for your crown. We all know Dr. Anthony Fauci is the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a White House advisor. During this entire pandemic, he’s been the go-to man on all the facts about coronavirus.

Well, now there is a petition circulating to also make Dr. Fauci People‘s new Sexiest Man Alive. On the petition page, it says, “His comforting and intelligent demeanor has helped to lessen our national anxiety. He speaks truth to power, a strength few have at this time. His kind face and manner of speaking bring calm during the storm.” And at the end, “For sapiophiles and many others, he is the definitive Sexiest Man Alive in 2020.”

So far, almost 5,000 people have signed the petition.
