WASHINGTON, DC – According to reports, Dr. Anthony Fauci is planning on resigning in December from both the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and his role as serving as the chief medical advisor at the White House.

The 81-year-old NIAID director issued a statement confirming his intent to leave his roles within the governmental entity and the White House on August 22nd, saying, “While I am moving on from my current positions, I am not retiring. 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.”

Whatever Fauci’s “next phase” is exactly isn’t clear, as he didn’t elaborate on that aspect in his released statement. However, he did say that he isn’t “retiring,” which suggests that he’s going to be going somewhere, possibly in the private sector.

The aforementioned notion also appears to bear substance based on Fauci’s statement additionally noted, “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.”

Joe Biden also released a statement pertaining to the news of Fauci stepping, calling the NIAID director “a dedicated public servant, and a steady hand with wisdom and insight honed over decades at the forefront of some of our most dangerous and challenging public health crises.”

In early 2020, Fauci became a household name thanks largely to him becoming one of the faces – if not the face – of the COVID response. This newfound fame later turned sour among many Americans as more and more information came out about the virus and efforts to squander any talk that abstained from the official narrative.

But decades before COVID-19, Fauci was front and center at the response to another then-novel disease in the early 1980s – that disease being AIDS. And much like the COVID response, Fauci garnered well-warranted backlash for some of the theories he spun up about AIDS in 1983 and beyond.

While it’s common knowledge today (and has been for some time) that AIDS is caused by HIV, which is transmitted exclusively through exposure to infected bodily fluids such as blood, or by sexual contact, Fauci drafted a piece in the Journal of the American Medical Association that suggested: “routine close contact, as within a family household, can spread the disease.”

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
