Dr. Anthony Fauci found himself in the headlines as one of the go-to experts throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, with the year winding down, Fauci tops a list for the most memorable quotes of 2020 with his advice on a simple safety measure that helped flatten the curve in COVID-19 cases across the country.

According to the New York Post, Fauci’s “wear a mask” direction is the most memorable quote of the year.

The 74-year-old Fauci has been director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984 and one of the most respected voices during the coronavirus pandemic.

Fauci, who has advised six presidents, received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2008.

Other quotes to make the list include George Floyd’s “I can’t breathe” which sparked protests against police brutality across the country, Donald Trump saying the coronavirus would magically disappear, Joe Biden saying “you ain’t Black” if you vote for Trump, and much more.

The list can be seen below, via the New York Post:

  1. “Wear a mask.” — Dr. Anthony Fauci, CNN interview, May 21.

  2. “I can’t breathe.” — George Floyd, plea to police officer, Minneapolis, May 25.

  3. “One day — it’s like a miracle — it will disappear,” President Donald Trump, referring to the coronavirus in remarks at an African American History Month reception at the White House, Feb. 27.

  4. “I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning?” — Trump, in remarks at a White House Coronavirus Task Force news briefing, April 23.

  5. “I will never lie to you. You have my word on that.” — White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

  6. “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, statement from granddaughter Clara Spera.

  7. “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.” — Joe Biden, in an interview with “The Breakfast Club” radio program, May 22.

The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).

The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.

While a majority of the cases have been detected in the United States and China — with more than 14.8 million confirmed cases and 282,000 deaths in the United States — it has now reached many countries around the world. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.
