Dr. Fauci is sharing his new nightmare about ‘next inevitable pandemic’

WASHINGTON — Dr. Anthony Fauci became a household name during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tens of millions of Americans turned to the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health for guidance on how to stay safe. Even though Dr. Fauci helped steer the United States’ response during the coronavirus nightmare, the good doctor claims there’s something new that’s keeping him up at night.

In a recent article published in Science Translational Medicine, Dr. Fauci, who served as NIAID director for nearly four decades, reflected on the challenges faced during the COVID-19 crisis and offered more guidance on better preparing for future pandemics. He began by recounting a pivotal moment in January 2020 when the emergence of a virus he had long feared led to a global pandemic.

Addressing what he terms a new “nemesis” – the lack of “corporate memory” – Dr. Fauci highlights the importance of preserving the lessons from COVID-19 to ensure readiness for future outbreaks.

He categorizes these lessons into two “buckets”: the public health bucket and the scientific bucket.

“If there is a success story embedded in the COVID-19 saga, it is in the arena of basic, translational, and clinical science— the scientific bucket,” writes Dr. Fauci in a media release.

He attributes this success to decades of investment in basic research, acknowledging the groundbreaking discoveries of Dr. Drew Weissman and Dr. Katalin Kariko, whose work laid the foundation for the development of highly effective mRNA vaccines against COVID-19. Both scientists were awarded the 2023 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology for their contributions.

In the realm of scientific research, Dr. Fauci also outlines a potential path forward involving prototype pathogen research to enhance preparedness for future threats.

However, he also candidly addresses the shortcomings in the public health response during the pandemic. These failures, Dr. Fauci asserts, belong in the “public health bucket.” Key challenges highlighted include institutional weaknesses, insufficient coordination between state and federal governments, supply chain disruptions, and the proliferation of misinformation and disinformation.

As he concludes his reflections, Dr. Fauci underscores the critical importance of retaining the “corporate memory” of COVID-19 to drive sustained interest and support for both scientific advancements and public health measures.

“Fundamental to all this discussion is my comment above regarding the next inevitable pandemic, whenever that occurs,” says Dr. Fauci. “Over and over, after time has passed from the appearance of an acute public health challenge, and after cases, hospitalizations, and deaths fall to an ‘acceptable’ level … the transition from being reactive to the dwindling challenge to being durably and consistently prepared for the next challenge seems to fall flat. Hopefully, corporate memory of COVID-19 will endure and trigger a sustained interest and support of both the scientific and public health buckets.”

“If not, many of us will be spending a lot of time awake in bed or having nightmares when asleep!”

  1. Can‘t believe this website published this garbage about — as Congressional hearings revealed — proven repeat liar (purgery), whom the author of this article actually referred to as „the good doctor.“ Nice way to destroy your credibility, shilling for this gain of functional monster. Nice job guys.

  2. Yep, and it will come right around next year’s election, requiring unlimited vote by mail (with no signature verification, of course).

  3. We learned a big lesson all right. Do not leave it to the scientists and health officials paid by big pharma. Bring in the business folks and economists for a comprehensive viewpoint.

  4. Wait Fauci has been around for decades. Who do youu think botched the HIV-aids issues IN THE 80s.? Do some research . GOF weaponizing microbes for year.

  5. Fauci’s dirtied his hands long ago when he was head of the FDA. Millions in kick-backs from Big Pharma, and very likely from the CCP as well.

    Another “bat” virus, my foot.

  6. The first lesson learned was that the government was one of the principle sources of disinformation. The Second lesson was that lock downs, masks mandates did more harm than good. The third lesson is not to listen to power hungry bureaucrats like Fauci.

  7. Friends, there is a non-invasive way to protect yourself from ANY pathogen:
    500mg Quercetin and 200mg zinc picolinate, twice a day for a week. Once a day thereafter. It blocks any germ, virus, or bacteria, no matter how new it is.

    This is a simpler version of Dr. Zelenko’s protocol.

  8. 4 pandemics in the last 100 years….1918 from Spain…Asian Flu of 1957 from China….Hong Kong flu of 1968-1970 from China….2020 from China…..note they are decades apart…percentage wise deaths…. the Hong Kong flu in 1968 was WORSE than COVID

  9. Why should Fauci fear the next scamdemic when he’s involved in the creation of it? -Just like the last one.
    This disgusting, corrupt, Northeast liberal with his gangster accent won’t be taken seriously when they break the next test tube of whatever they have cooked up for the next liberty killing, government expanding, cash generating “pandemic”.
    These globalist cockroaches have done great damage to the credibility of the entire medical industry.
    In fact, I shall NEVER take another injection again! (My last was 40 years ago in the Marines).

  10. since they’re so intent on killing us, just build camps south of the 50th parallel so that Zyklon B will dissolve in the shower heads unlike the Fuhrer’s camps where it did not.

  11. Fauci is OUR nightmare… an inveterate liar, propagandist, and political agitator. His name is a shame to all who do honest science.

  12. Fauci should be swinging from the end of a rope if we’re ever to return to justice and the rule of law in this world.
