Those of us who reported the unvarnished evidence on Covid risked being labeled ‘misinformation’ by various illegitimate so-called fact checkers.
The entire time, I am been swimming upstream against the social media campaign organized by covid czar and science godlet Dr. Anthony Fauci. As a reminder,
- Fauci insisted that masks were great protection (after initially denying their effectiveness).
- Fauci asserted that people should show proof of vaccination during holiday activities.
- Fauci appeared to use his position to hide links between his National Institute and Health and the “gain of function” research at the Wuhnan Institute of Virology, which I believe is the likeliest source of the contagion.
Still, I persisted.
So, gentle reader, while I normally take no joy in anyone’s illness, I hope I can be forgiven the schadenfreude I feel over reporting that Fauci now is dealing with a covid infection.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who President Joe Biden tapped as his pandemic tsar, has come down with covid.
The National Institutes of Health announced on Wednesday that Fauci, 81, tested positive for the virus on a rapid antigen test but has not had any recent contact with the president or any other senior officials.
Fauci is fully vaccinated against the virus, and has been boosted twice.
He currently has mild symptoms, and will continue to isolate from other government officials in the coming days. Fauci will only return to the NIH when he tests negative, it announced, and will continue to work from home.
The institute told CNN that he is being treated with the antiviral medication Paxlovid.
NIAID said Fauci found out that he was positive on a rapid antigen test. The director will work from home and follow agency protocol, returning to the National Institutes of Health campus only after he tests negative.
Fauci was scheduled to speak Thursday at a hearing of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on the status of the federal response to Covid-19 and plans to manage the pandemic. The agency said he will attend by videoconference.
Fauci has not had any close contact with Biden or other senior officials recently, the institute said.
Apparently, there is now a pandemic of schadenfreude that has just been unleashed.

Fauci has Covid. Good thing he skipped the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in order to avoid Covid.
