Fauci Hints at Retirement While Legacy on the Hotseat



Unnamed (2)Dr. Anthony Fauci, the long-serving director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a special health advisor to the Biden White House, is dropping hints that he may soon retire.

“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,” he told ABC’s “Start Here” podcast on  March 19.  “I can’t stay at this job forever. Unless my staff is going to find me slumped over my desk one day, I’d rather not do that.”

Fauci, 81, who came to personify the nation’s response to COVID-19, has been mired in many of the controversies surrounding the federal government’s handling of the coronavirus, including the restrictions on personal freedom and the overall effectiveness of the measures taken to stem the disease’s spread.
