Det påstås även i olika konspirationsteorier att han varit med att skapa viruset.
Det är framförallt republikaner och konservativa politiker som skuldbelägger Fauci och pekar ut honom som en skurk.

Jag tror inte att det var meningen, och det i sig säger en del, men det fanns en rejält märklig och stötande passus i statminister Löfvens tal till nationen den 22 november om coronaepidemin. ”Vi vet hur man ska göra för att platta till smittspridningskurvan. Vi har gjort det förr. Vi gjorde det i våras”, sa statsministern.
Förunderligt nog hade han mindre än en minut tidigare sagt: ”Låt oss komma ihåg att över 6 000 människor i Sverige redan har dött med covid-19.” När dessa rader publiceras, blott tio dagar efter Lövens tal, kan dödstalet tyvärr snarare beskrivas som närmare 7 000.

Personal som jobbar i andra människors hem där det finns konstaterad eller misstänkt covid-19 ska få ha andningsskydd. Det står klart efter att Arbetsmiljöverket beslutat om nya riktlinjer. Att jobba i ett hem där någon drabbats av covid-19 innebär särskilda risker för att smittas av viruset.

Det är en förändring jämfört med det krav på visir och munskydd som gäller i dag.

In an hour-long interview with a popular alt-right activist on May 10th, which has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, Prof Dolores Cahill promised to “debunk the narrative” of the pandemic.

On 25 January, as France’s third pandemic wave gathered force, Christophe d’Enfert, scientific director of the Pasteur Institute, appeared on national TV with a grim duty: explaining how the venerable institute, named after vaccine pioneer Louis Pasteur, had given up on its most advanced COVID-19 vaccine candidate.
Around the same time, French drug giant Sanofi said its own contenders were delayed—and that it would cut hundreds of French jobs. Today, France remains the only nation on the U.N. Security Council without a viable vaccine. To d’Enfert, it “brings into question our capacity not only to do very high-level fundamental research, but also to transform this into innovation.
French politicians have reacted with dismay to news that the prestigious Pasteur Institute is abandoning its main coronavirus vaccine after disappointing test results. Researchers at the institute said clinical trials on its vaccine had shown it was less successful in combatting the virus than hoped.
It had been trying to adapt an existing vaccine used against measles, in partnership with the US company Merck.

Public confidence in vaccine rollout hurt by AstraZeneca fears: Italian health official
Two legislators’ hands were caught deep in the cookie jar — contracts for supplying anti-virus face masks. It seems that they were moved so deeply by early shortages that they used their business connections, cultivated despite public service in the Bundestag, to arrange very lucrative deals from friendly producers. Friendly enough for little “Thank you” gestures for the sales — 250,000 euros for Nikolas Löbel, 35, CDU, and 660,000 for Georg Nüsslein, 52, CSU.
Don’t screw up the lockdowns, don’t screw up the financial relief, don’t screw up when acquiring masks, or ordering untested vaccines, or re-opening schools, or during the second lockdowns. Don’t screw up, and let more of our loved ones get sick and risk death.
