Fauci's fortune more than doubled in Covid-19


(MENAFN) Watchdog organization OpenTheBooks stated on Friday that United States chief medical officer Anthony Fauci's net worth increased to USD12.6 million in 2021 from USD7.6 million in 2019, citing financial documents it had received from Fauci's employer, the National Institutes of Health.

As head of the National Institutes for Allergies and Infectious Diseases, Fauci was already the highest-paid official in the federal government prior to the pandemic, earning USD456,000 in 2021 and USD480,000 in 2022. That monthly cheque, however, only amounts to a small portion of what he made while his Covid-19 policies contributed to the United States economy entering a recession.

The reports list several trusts, retirement accounts, and other financial assets, all of which appear to have increased in value throughout the epidemic despite the fact that the actual economy was negatively impacted to a large extent. Fauci's windfall from coronavirus includes book earnings, the USD1 million Dan David Prize from Israel, appearance payments, and lecture fees. Nevertheless, the document that OpenTheBooks requested from the NIH, which would have shown how much money Fauci was making from pharmaceuticals and other patents, was apparently severely censored. OpenTheBooks had requested to view all royalties paid to the doctor.
