Dr. Anthony Fauci has decided to retire by the end of the current term of President Joe Biden- with the top infectious disease expert mentioning it to CNN on Monday. Fauci, who has been serving as the chief medical adviser for Biden, and also has also served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for decades, stated that while he doesn’t have a specific date on which he would like to retire from office, he still has some plans of doing so. He stated that he had been speaking about his retirement for quite some time now- and would like to do it along with the end of the current term of Joe Biden. 

Anthony Fauci Has Plans For Retiring By 2025

In an interview that was published by Politico, Anthony Fauci was pretty uninhibited in his response. He stated that he had no expectations of remaining in the government until the coronavirus was eradicated. For he believed that this virus would be there for years to come- with no clear signs of its eradication. Also speaking to CNN later, Fauci clarified that although many had taken his comments about retirement as a specific plan for retirement, he simply believed that it was almost impossible that he would be in the government even beyond January 2025. 

Anthony Fauci believes that he has already created a good system at the NIAID which would help enable a smooth transition at the agency. He has plans of pursuing other career opportunities once he eventually left this profession. Currently 81, Fauci has been serving for five decades- under seven Presidents. In fact, he has been the medical voice of reason for almost every American president since Ronald Reagan.
