The completely vaccinated and double-boosted Dr. Anthony Fauci has actually tested positive for COVID-19 for the first time since the start of the COVID panic. Fauci, 81, tested positive on June 15th and was stated to be experiencing “mild symptoms.”
Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Contagious Illness, which is a department of the National Institutes of Health. He likewise functions as Biden’s chief medical consultant. According to a statement from the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Fauci has not been around other senior government officials, consisting of President Joe Biden.
“Today, Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, and Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden, tested positive for COVID-19 on a rapid antigen test,” the statement said. “He is fully vaccinated and has been boosted twice. He is currently experiencing mild symptoms. Dr. Fauci will isolate and continue to work from his home. He has not recently been in close contact with President Biden or other senior government officials.”
The agency added that “Dr. Fauci will follow the COVID-19 guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and medical advice from his physician and return to the NIH when he tests negative.”
“Each of us, in our own personal way, has to make an assessment of what risk you’re willing to accept about getting infected,” he told CNN. “In general, the risk is low, but I made a personal assessment. I’m 81 years old, and if I get infected, I have a much higher risk.”
Fauci has actually been the propped-up public face of the American COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions since the panic was started in 2020. He has received a mixture of both sickening hero praise and biting criticism for his action, depending on which side of the aisle you’re on.
During a recent interview with CNN, Fauci stated that he would not continue to work as a White Home medical advisor if President Donald Trump reclaims the White Home in 2024.

“If you look at the history of what the response was during the administration, I think, you know, at best you could say it wasn’t optimal,” Fauci said. “And I think just history will speak for itself about that.”
