Anthony Fauci has announced his resignation as Chief Medical Advisor to the President and NIAID director after holding the latter position for nearly four decades and seven presidencies.

“I am announcing today that I will be stepping down from the positions of Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, as well as the position of Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden. I will be leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career,” Fauci wrote in an official statement.

Indeed, despite being 81, serving as NIAID director since Ronald Reagan was president, and overseeing the response for everything from HIV/AIDS to COVID, Fauci doesn’t plan to retire, saying he wants to “inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders.”

“While I am moving on from my current positions, I am not retiring,” Fauci writes. “After more than 50 years of government service, I plan to pursue the next phase of my career while I still have so much energy and passion for my field.”

“I want to use what I have learned as NIAID Director 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 face future infectious disease threats.”

Over the course of the COVID pandemic, Fauci has had more than a few controversial moments, frequently contradicting his previous health advice regarding respiratory viruses and admitting that lockdowns are a tool of coercion to get people vaccinated — which he claimed would be effective in preventing transmission but never was.

Despite these blunders, which he’s only rarely been challenged on publicly, it looks like Fauci is tired of the spotlight, bowing out after two years of pushing a backwards narrative and health misinformation to hundreds of millions of Americans.
