- For the first time, Dr. Anthony Fauci has publicly talked about retirement
- He said he would stay on until the end of the pandemic but claimed the pandemic might be over
- This comes as Senator Rand Paul introduced an amendment to remove Dr. Fauci from his position
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s time at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases might be coming to an end sooner rather than later.
During an interview with ABC News, Dr. Fauci officially spoke out on retirement for the first time.
Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke about retiring from public life as demands for his termination have grown louder this week.
Fauci, 81, told ABC News he is “certainly” thinking of retiring as President Biden’s top medical adviser. Suggesting he will stay on until the end of the pandemic, Fauci noted the pandemic might already be over.
“I have said that I would stay in what I’m doing until we get out of the pandemic phase and I think we might be there already, if we can stay in this,” Fauci said regarding the Democrats’ decision to lift coronavirus mask and vaccine mandates without a change in the science of transmission.
“I can’t stay at this job forever. Unless my staff is gonna find me slumped over my desk one day. I’d rather not do that,” he added.
Fauci has never hinted so strongly he may retire. There may be a reason for that. This week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced an amendment to remove Dr. Anthony Fauci as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
