Dr. Anthony Fauci Finally Reverses Course, Agrees Keeping Schools Closed During COVID was ‘mistake’; Fauci Brags About Turning Down $7 Million-Per-Year Private Sector Job, and other C-Virus related stories

Dr. Anthony Fauci finally reverses course, agrees keeping schools closed during COVID was ‘mistake’:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top adviser to two presidential administrations during the COVID-19 pandemic, reversed course in a Tuesday interview and agreed that shutting down schools for more than a year due to the virus was a “mistake” — while also arguing the initial decision to close classrooms was correct.
“Keeping it for a year was not a good idea,” the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) told “CBS Mornings” co-host Tony Dokoupil while talking about his new memoir “On Call: A Doctor’s Journey in Public Service.”
“So, that was a mistake in retrospect?” Dokoupil asked. “We will not repeat it?”
“Absolutely, yeah,” Fauci responded.
Fauci, 83, has previously stood by the recommendation that forced children out of classrooms and into remote learning alternatives — both in sworn congressional testimony and remarks to the press.
During summer 2020, as many schools were considering reopening, Fauci butted heads with former President Donald Trump — touting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines that forced closures based on spread in the broader community.
“I disagree with @CDCgov on their very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools. While they want them open, they are asking schools to do very impractical things. I will be meeting with them!!!” Trump posted on Twitter July 8, 2020. --->READ MORE HERE
Dr. Anthony Fauci brags about turning down $7 million-per-year private sector job:
Dr. Anthony Fauci bragged in a recent interview that he spurned multimillion-dollar job offers from major corporations to keep his plum gig as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Fauci, 83, retired from his NIAID post in 2022 as the highest-paid government employee, earning $481,000 in his last year on the job, and with a reported net-worth of more than $11 million between him and his wife.
“So, at the time that I was getting offered it … I was making $125,000, $200,000,” President Biden’s former chief medical adviser said in an interview with “CBS News Sunday Morning,” which will air in full on June 16.
“Then I would get offered a job that would get me $5 million, $6 million, $7 million a year,” the infectious disease expert claimed.
Fauci indicated that the private-sector overtures were made by pharmaceutical companies and “private equity,” but that he turned them all down because he felt his work in public health was “priceless.”
“[I] really felt what I was doing was having an impact on what I cared about, which was the health of the country and, indirectly, the health of the world, because the United States is such a leader in science, medicine and public health that what we do, indirectly, spills over onto the rest of the world,” he said. “And to me, that is priceless.” --->READ MORE HERE
