Dr. Anthony Fauci has been the lone shining star during the coronavirus pandemic, but I feel like he’s been sort of cast aside recently (at least from a media perspective). This is unfortunate, as he is probably one of the most reliable public figures in terms of information on COVID-19.
It has been a while since I last heard from Fauci or read his most recent comments, but I recently stumbed upon this article on Business Insider. In the article, Fauci touches upon his daily habits, his thoughts on the coronavirus, and how he thinks we should be acting for the foreseeable future.
In the article, Fauci mentions how it will probably take until the spring of 2022 before everything returns to relative normalcy. He believes that we could have a vaccine soon, but that it will be a year or so before it can be properly administered and fully effective. This makes logical sense, even if it is frustrating to hear for people.
What I really enjoyed reading about is Fauci’s schedule, although it makes me feel pity for him. He is almost 80 years old, yet he is still working 18 hour days during this pandemic. It is unsustainable, although I am grateful for all the work he and his team are putting in through these times. He has such an important job, and I think everyone should recognize the sacrifices he is making to help the US throughout this time!
