As a result of the coronavirus epidemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci became one of the most famous people in the United States.
For those who don know him, Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health. Since 1984, when he became director of the NIAID, Dr. Fauci has been in charge of a wide range of research projects that aim to prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious and immune-mediated diseases.
Dr. Fauci served as a reassuring figure for panicked Americans in the early days of the pandemic when many people lost their jobs and struggled to acquire health insurance.
Recently, there were reports that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s net worth doubled over the course of the lockdowns. This was despite the fact that his pandemic policies shut down schools and businesses across America.
What Is Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Net Worth In 2022?
Fauci was President Joe Biden’s top advisor on the pandemic, but he became well-known for his awkward meetings with former President Donald Trump to talk about the virus. In how the country responded to COVID-19, the media often showed the doctor and the former president as being at odds with each other. Based on data from the federal government, Fauci was making more money than Trump at the time.
According to the financial reports that the watchdog group OpenTheBooks looked at. The chief medical adviser to the White House Dr. Anthony Fauci went from having a net net worth of $7.6 million in 2019 to having a net worth of over $12.6 million in December 2021. In 2021 and 2022, Fauci was the government employee who made the most money. He made more than the president, four-star generals, and about 4.3 million other bureaucrats.
The most up-to-date information on Fauci’s salary comes from OpentheBooks.com, which gets its information from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. The site says that Fauci’s current salary from the government is $480,654. The president’s salary, on the other hand, has been $400,000 per year since 2001.
Sen. Roger Marshall fought hard in January to get Fauci’s financial disclosures from the National Institutes of Health, which had not been made public before. Marshall’s request came after a heated Senate hearing in which Fauci said the records were already public and called Marshall “a moron.”
Adam Andrzejewski, CEO of OpenTheBooks, told Fox News, “Fauci’s skyrocketing net worth was due to his high salary at the end of his career, lucrative cash prizes from nonprofit groups all over the world, and an ever-growing investment portfolio.”
Dr. Anthony Fauci Leaves Public Service But Is Worried About Health Misinformation
Dr. Anthony Fauci is leaving his position in the government at the end of the month, though he is not retiring after more than 50 years of service. Fauci recently told ABC News that he plans to pursue interests outside of government service while he is still physically and mentally capable of doing so.
Misinformation is one of the things that worries him most about the future of science and medicine in the United States as he prepares to step down as head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and as President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor.
At the NIH, Fauci told ABC News’ Chief Medical Correspondent Jen Ashton, “Misinformation and disinformation is actually affecting so many things, including people’s belief in science.” As a result, “it becomes very difficult to persuade people to completely comprehend the truth of what is going on,” which, in this situation, could affect how we respond to a pandemic like COVID-19.
