Epidemiologist Anthony Fauci (pictured) said in an interview with the American Politico website that he intends to retire before the end of the current term of President Joe Biden..

Since 1984, Fauci has directed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the main US government agency dealing with the issue. He has served under seven US presidents (Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and Biden).

According to one of his close relatives, the epidemiologist intends to leave the head of the institute in January. The department’s budget now stands at US$6.3 billion (R$33 billion), second only to the US National Institutes of Health’s cancer division, according to Bloomberg.

During the Covid epidemic, the doctor came into conflict with Trump and came under strong pressure from the then president, who several times adopted a denialist position and suggested using unproven treatments against the coronavirus.
