    Fauci advocated 1950's Virology
    that does not work with fast surface antigen
    mutation

    Happily Polio remains with 3.

    safe and effective was the slogan used for his aids treatment and the gay community was literally rioting because the reality was unsafe and ineffective. good call!

    Long sigh at the endless tedium of debunked conspiracy batshit!

    AIDS medication didn’t kill more people than the virus itself | AP News
    "CLAIM: The majority of AIDS patients died from medication developed when Dr. Anthony Fauci led the nation’s response to the emerging epidemic, not from the virus itself.

    AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. While it’s true that Fauci had been a leading researcher when AIDS emerged in the 1980s, the claims that azidothymidine, commonly known as AZT, killed more people than the virus itself are baseless. Public health agencies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to the World Health Organization, as well as prominent AIDS organizations and researchers, told The Associated Press the drug remains in use today as it’s been shown to be effective at keeping HIV in check when used in combination with other medications.

    THE FACTS: Social media users are once again sharing the long debunked notion that Fauci, the face of the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, advocated decades earlier for a drug to combat the emerging AIDS epidemic that turned out to be more deadly than the virus itself."

    Debunking Denialist Myths – AIDSTruth
    "Uncontrolled studies have found increased survival and/or reduced frequency of opportunistic infections in patients with HIV disease and AIDS who were treated with AZT or other anti-retrovirals (Creagh-Kirk et al., 1988; Moore et al., 1991a,b; Ragni et al., 1992; Schinaia et al., 1991; Koblin et al., 1992; Graham et al., 1991, 1992, 1993; Longini, 1993; Vella et al., 1992, 1994; Saah et al., 1994; Bacellar et al., 1994). In the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, for example, HIV-infected individuals treated with AZT had significantly reduced mortality and progression to AIDS for follow-up intervals of six, 12, 18 and 24 months compared to those not taking AZT, even after adjusting for health status, CD4+ T cell counts and PCP prophylaxis (Graham et al., 1991, 1992). In addition, several cohort studies show that life expectancy of individuals with AIDS has increased since the use of AZT became common in 1986-87."

    I ignore ideologues with no medical expertise targeting specialists in medical fields.

    If public health experts, virologists, immunologists, and epidemiologists were to have attacked Dr Fauci's competence, that would be a very different matter.

    Fauci served with distinction under several presidents before hyper-partisans issued their political fatwa.

    Did medical understanding of HIV, the corona virus, and other public health challenges progress during his tenure and require that guidelines be revised accordingly? Of course. In science, knowledge accrues over time.
