Anthony Fauci will retire soon

After decades of work fighting various pandemics, including HIV and more recently covid-19, that have rocked the United States and the world, Dr. Anthony Fauci, now President Joe Biden’s principal advisor on Covid-19, announced (August 22) in Age 81 that he will leave office in December. The famous immunologist will also retire on this date from his position as director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which he has held for 38 years. It’s not quite a retreat. “I plan to pursue the next phase of my career with all the energy and passion I have left for my field,” he said in a statement. President Joe Biden immediately sent him his “profound thanks”. “The United States is stronger, more resilient, and healthier because of him,” he said in a statement. In 2020, this doctor – already famous in the world of infectious diseases and especially in the fight against HIV, but unknown to the general public – was thrown into the spotlight by joining the presidential cell of Donald Trump’s coronavirus. His simple messages, tirelessly repeated during countless daily media intrusions, made him the reassuring figure America needed and made up for Trump’s mistakes. “I will always be grateful that we have a public health leader like just once in a generation to guide us through an epidemic like just once in a century,” former President Barack Obama said on Twitter. If he has been hugely successful with Democrats, American conservatives hate him. It is the preferred target of anti-vaccinators and opponents of mask-wearing, in the context of the very strong politicization of the health crisis in the United States. Anthony Fauci is now forced to live surrounded by an enhanced security system. He served under seven different American presidents, beginning with Ronald Reagan. Under Republican President George W. Bush, Anthony Fauci was the architect of the Pepfar program, which has saved the lives of millions of people exposed to or living with HIV. He was honored in 2008 for his efforts in the fight against AIDS. “Thanks to the power of science and investments in research and innovation, the world has been able to fight deadly diseases,” Anthony Fauci wrote. “I am proud to be a part of this important work and look forward to helping continue to do so in the future.”
