I am not alone in wanting to hang on to every word that comes out of Dr. Fauci’s mouth. The objectivity, the confidence, the separation of noise from issue. Just remarkable!
Jotting a few words from this article as source of inspiration.
The Atlantic: Given this experience, do you still want to work with the administration? Have you thought about resigning?
Fauci: No. I think the problem is too important for me to get into those kinds of thoughts and discussions. I just want to do my job. I’m really good at it. I think I can contribute. And I’m going to keep doing it.
The Atlantic: We recently published a piece about burnout among public-health experts trying to fight this pandemic. You clearly have been very much a part of that. How are you doing? How are you coping?
Fauci: I’m doing okay; I’m doing fine. I am running a bit on fumes, but as they say, the fumes are really thick. It’s enough to keep me going. I wish we didn’t have a lot of those distractions, which I think are noise that gets in the way. But I put that aside, try not to let it bother me, and just move ahead.
