Dr. Anthony Fauci has reportedly tested positive for COViD-19.
ABC News reported the test result Wednesday afternoon, adding that the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was suffering only mild symptoms.
The 81-year-old Dr. Fauci is also the chief medical advisor to President Biden. However, he is not considered a close contact to Mr. Biden.
Dr. Fauci became the face of public health two years ago as the COVID-19 pandemic spread. However, he wore out his welcome with many conservatives over his medicine-centric recommendations for social life, some of which were knowingly shaded to affect public opinion.
