Dr. Fauci Is $5 Million Richer Thanks To COVID Outbreak

Dr. Anthony Fauci and his wife’s net worth skyrocketed by $5 million during the COVID-19 surge.

As Americans struggled to pay their bills and keep their businesses going, Fauci profited from the pandemic, which he potentially falsely claimed was started at a Chinese wet market.

Fauci is set to retire from his role as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The 81-year-old’s step down comes after Republican Senator Rand Paul pressured the Department of Justice to intact a criminal referral against Fauci. Paul and many other Republicans believe Fauci lied to congress about “gain-of-function” research in China.

According to reports from the non-profit OpenTheBooks, Fauci and his wife, Christine Grady, wealth rose from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million by 2021.

“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” OpenTheBooks’ CEO, Adam Andrzejewski, told Fox News Digital. “While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic.”

The $5 million came from higher salary raises, cash awards and royalties in part.

“Fauci’s soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world and an ever-larger investment portfolio,” Andrzejewski said.

“He is the top-paid federal employee, his first-year golden parachute retirement pension is the largest in federal history, and he’s accepting $1 million prizes from foreign non-profits,” he added.

Former President Trump allowed Fauci to be front and center while the COVID-19 virus surged in 2020 and continually politicized the pandemic. He pushed for strict lockdowns and was a huge proponent of the controversial COVID shot.

Despite not following Fauci’s plans, places like Florida and Texas showed that the doctor’s orders were not only unnecessary but completely baseless.

Fauci has claimed that the Wuhan lab had nothing to do with creating and releasing the virus. He also was adamant that the virus was not man-made. However, it is now clear that there is a high possibility that the virus was created in a lab and may have been used as a bio-weapon.

Follow the money and find the truth is a mantra that hasn’t failed yet, and Fauci’s money stream sure does give insight.
