January 25th – Fauci, the top infectious disease expert in the United States, recalled his work experience in the Trump administration in an interview with the U.S. media a few days ago, saying that he had received a threatening letter thinking that he would die.
According to Business Insider, Fauci recently told The New York Times that he received a letter containing white powder last year (2020), which quickly covered his face and chest when he opened it.
“This must be one of three situations: a scam, or anthrax (an acute infectious disease), or ricin, and I may be dead.” Fauci thought that the material in the envelope was scary.
“My wife and children are more uneasy than me.”
Fauci revealed that he began receiving death threats on March 28, 2020, when he first joined the fight against the novel coronavirus and appeared frequently at White House meetings and press conferences.
U.S. media further pointed out that this year, however, Trump and his allies often publicly despised Fauci’s scientific response to the epidemic, and the two often disagreed.
Fauci, who is currently the chief medical adviser in the Biden administration, said he is not sure how many years he will work, but he is not prepared to leave Washington or his office in Maryland soon.
“I hope to do so until we see us suppress this outbreak and people can return to normal life. “
