In a new interview that was published on Monday, Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed his intention to resign at the end of President Joe Biden's term. He expressed regret that Americans no longer listened to his suggestions regarding the use of masks or vaccines.
In an interview with Politico, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who serves as Chief Medical Adviser to President Joe Biden at the White House, admitted that the coronavirus will outlive his professional career in medicine.
“We’re in a pattern now. If somebody says, ‘You’ll leave when we don’t have Covid anymore,’ then I will be 105. I think we’re going to be living with this,” he said.
Although he did not provide a specific date, it is reasonable to assume that Fauci intends to step down at the end of Biden's first term in office.
He predicted that Republicans would begin an investigation into him if they took leadership in the House of Representatives in November, but he claimed that the reason he wanted to leave was not because of that possibility.
“They’re going to try and come after me, anyway. I mean, probably less so if I’m not in the job,” Fauci said.
He voiced his regret that Americans were no longer listening to his instructions on concealing one's identity or receiving vaccinations.
“It’s becoming more and more difficult to get people to listen, because even the people who are compliant want this behind them,” Fauci said, pleading for Americans to continue wearing masks in certain situations and getting regular booster shots of the coronavirus vaccine.
The newly discovered BA.5 strain is to responsible for the alarming increase in coronavirus cases.
During an interview that took place a week ago with ABC News, Dr. Fauci reiterated his stance on the significance of wearing masks.
“Just because people are not wearing masks is not a reason for you not to wear a mask,” he said. “You can still protect yourself very well with a properly fitted, adequate mask.”
