Anthony Fauci, the government’s chief epidemiologist, will leave his post in December

With the advent of the global Covid-19 pandemic, his face became one of the most talked about in the United States. Epidemiologist Anthony Fauci became the visible face of the US response to the coronavirus as one of the world’s leading experts on infectious diseases. He monopolized minutes and minutes of television and radio programs to resolve doubts and try to combat the misinformation circulating, for example, on social networks about the coronavirus and the pandemic in general.

Today, after many years dedicated to public service and science, the chief epidemiologist of the United States has announced his retirement. Next December he will leave his post, not to retire, but to continue learning and contributing to the advancement of science and public health. This is what he has expressed in an official statement, where he has assured that, despite his 81 years, he continues with energy and passion. “Although I am leaving my current position, I am not retiring. During the coming months, I will continue to devote all my effort, passion and commitment to my current responsibilities,” he stressed months after confirming in a U.S. media that he would continue to lead until the end of Joe Biden’s term.

Fauci was also director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and head of the US Immunoregulatory Laboratory. Both positions he will also be leaving next December to “pursue the next chapter” of his career.

“After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to move on to the next phase of my career while I still have as much energy and passion for my field. I want to use what I learned as director of NIAID to continue to advance science and public health and to inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to meet future infectious disease threats.”

Throughout his career, where he has been able to advise 7 US presidents, he has been confronted with health issues or infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, West Nile virus, Ebola, avian flu or Covid-19, the most recent. “I am particularly proud to have served as a senior medical advisor to President Joe Biden from the first day of his administration,” he concluded.

The U.S. president wanted to thank him for his work and to highlight the work he has done over the past 50 years. “Whether you know him personally or not, he has touched the lives of all Americans through his work. I convey my deepest appreciation for your public service. America is stronger, more resilient and healthier because of him,” Biden said.
