The Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), a group of highly published, world-renowned critical care physicians and scholars, is pleased to learn that Anthony Fauci will be leaving government service at the end of the year. Unfortunately,the damage he has done to medical research, science and public health over his long career will be felt for years to come.
Dr. Fauci’s career is a clear demonstration of what many fear most from our government: ego-driven technocrats pushing a failing, evidence-free political agenda on the country with no transparency or accountability. Dr. Fauci’s promotion of expensive, untested new COVID-19 medications to the exclusion of safe, extensively studied generic treatments has caused an untold amount of illness, suffering and death.
“Virtually all of our governments’ failed pandemic policies can be traced back to Dr. Fauci, from lockdowns to indiscriminate vaccinations to vaccine mandates,” said Pierre Kory, M.D., M.P.A., president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC. “He ignored natural immunity and blindly pushed mass vaccinations, even after it was clear that they weren’t effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Cheap repurposed medicines like fluvoxamine proved effective at reducing COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths as far back as 2020, yet he ignored them all.”
“I am saddened to think of the countless lives that could have been saved if Dr. Fauci had actually been the leader we all needed and let science instead of profit guide our policies,”said Paul Marik, M.D., co-founder and chief scientific officer of the FLCCC. “Early in the pandemic my colleagues and I saw positive results using widely available repurposed drugs to treat COVID patients. We told the world, including Dr. Fauci, what we knew, but he refused to listen, and countless people suffered while so many senselessly died.”
