Top Medical Adviser Fauci Tests Positive for Covid-19

From a story on by Sarah Owermohle headlined “Fauci tests positive for Covid-19”:

President Joe Biden’s top medical adviser and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci tested positive for Covid-19, the agency said Wednesday.

The 81-year-old infectious disease scientist, who to many has become the face of the government’s coronavirus response, is experiencing mild symptoms, National Institutes of Health said in a statement. He is fully vaccinated and has received two boosters.

Fauci “will isolate and continue to work from home,” NIH said, adding he has not recently been in close contact with Biden or other senior officials.

Fauci’s Covid-19 case comes days after Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra tested positive again, three weeks after his initial infection.

The doctor is taking the antiviral Paxlovid according to a NIAID spokesperson. It is not clear where he contracted the virus.
