Quadruple-vaccinated Dr. Anthony Fauci has tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing “mild symptoms,” it has been revealed.
The Biden administration’s chief medical advisor tested positive on a rapid antigen test according to a statement released by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
“He is fully vaccinated and has been boosted twice,” said the NIAID, meaning that Fauci has taken four shots of the “safe and effective” vaccine.
“He is currently experiencing mild symptoms. Dr. Fauci will isolate and continue to work from his home,” the statement added. “He has not recently been in close contact with President Biden or other senior government officials. Dr. Fauci will follow the COVID-19 guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and medical advice from his physician and return to the NIH when he tests negative.”
Although he has repeatedly insisted that Americans should continue to wear masks, last month Fauci attended a crowded pre-party for the White House Correspondent’s Dinner and took maskless selfies with Don Lemon.
The photos underscored Fauci’s hypocrisy because he said he wouldn’t attend the event itself due to COVID.
During an interview last month, Fauci admitted he had “flip-flopped” on COVID policy by constantly changing his mind, but that this was a good thing.
Back in April, Fauci acknowledged that the “pandemic phase” of COVID was over, but that hasn’t stopped him from hinting that restrictions could return at some point later this year.
During an appearance on MSNBC, Fauci let the truth about lockdowns slip – that they are theatre designed to scare people into getting vaccinated.
“You use lockdowns to get people vaccinated so that when you open up, you won’t have a surge of infections,” he said.
