Kansas Secretary of Health Dr. Lee Norman definitely did his best to lighten the mood amid concerns of the coronavirus after someone compares his appearance to Colonel Sanders.

“Here’s what I get for being serious,” Norman tweeted Monday in response to a picture of him on Twitter that compared him to the famed Kentucky Fried Chicken colonel. (RELATED: Here’s A List Of How Every Country In The World Is Responding To Coronavirus)

“And no finger-lickin’!” he added. “No, I won’t share my recipe of the 11 secret herbs and spices!”(RELATED: LIVE UPDATES: Here’s What Every State In America Is Doing To Combat The Spread Of The Coronavirus)

The comments came in response to a picture on Twitter that read simply, “Why is no one talking about this? Is Colonel Sanders really the doctor for the state of KS?” (RELATED: REPORT: Coachella Potentially Rescheduled To October Due To Coronavirus Fears)

And the photo they used, we have to admit, is quite convincing.

It all followed a recent press conference held by the Kansas Secretary of Department of Health and Environment about the positive cases of COVID-19 in the state and as well as steps the state was undergoing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Norman labeled health care workers in the state “unsung heroes” over the weekend for their response to the pandemic.

“Unsung heroes of public health,” the doctor wrote. “Coronavirus lab samples don’t run themselves. These people do. 16 hours per day per person.”

“Coronaviruses don’t fall onto a swab,” he added. “People mask and gown up to gather samples. Day/night. Putting themselves at risk. I am grateful for their devotion.”
