FAUCI PLANS TO RETIRE BEFORE THE END OF PRESIDENT BIDEN’S TERM

Chief Medical Advisor to the President Dr. Anthony Fauci says he will retire before the end of President Biden’s term, according to a Politico report published Monday.

Fauci, who spent more than three decades leading the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), became a household name during the coronavirus pandemic. His frequent media appearances earned him both praise and criticism, particularly regarding his recommendations for COVID-19 mitigation.

The report of Fauci’s planned retirement comes just days after he resumed media appearances following a battle with COVID-19, which Fauci says “rebounded” after he took the antiviral drug Paxlovid. Fauci’s latest advice to the American public is to wear a mask in “indoor congregate settings” to help slow the spread of the “BA.5” coronavirus variant.

Fauci recently defended the safety of COVID-19 vaccinations for children despite hesitancy from other medical professionals, noting side effects resulting from COVID-19 vaccines have been found to be “no better, or worse” than those elicited from “any of a number of childhood vaccines.”
