So was Stalin…
Via The Hill:
People magazine on Tuesday honored National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci as one of its people of the year.
The magazine called Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, “the doctor America needed in 2020,” lauding him for “providing steady guidance during the pandemic.” It also touted Fauci’s decades-long career, during which he has advised six presidents “through some of the most dangerous health threats in the history of our country.”
Asked how he stays “focused” during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Fauci told the magazine, “You stay focused because you just do it. You dig deep, you grab yourself by the bootstraps and you say you’ve got to do it. There’s no other alternative because if you don’t do it you’re going to fail, and failure isn’t an option. So there’s no room at all to get distracted, and there’s no room at all to give up. You just have to keep going.”
Fauci added that “divisiveness” among Americans and around the world “makes it much more difficult to address a public health outbreak.”
