Dr. Fauci Given Secret Service Protection After Receiving A Mountain Of Death Threats

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been one of the very few people in the White House offering actual information about the coronavirus, has been fearing for his life since he came to the spotlight.

According to The Washington Post, Dr. Fauci has been given security protection while he’s trying to save lives.

“The concerns include threats as well as unwelcome communications from fervent admirers, according to people with knowledge of deliberations inside the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice,” the report said, with disturbing detail.

His latest news is of the horrific model showing the extent to which the coronavirus is expected to spread and the lives it will claim.

“The exact nature of the threats against him was not clear. Greater exposure has led to more praise for the doctor but also more criticism,” wrote the Post. “Alex Azar, the HHS secretary, recently grew concerned about Fauci’s safety as his profile rose and he endured more vitriolic criticism online, according to people familiar with the situation. In recent weeks, admirers have also approached Fauci, asking to him sign baseballs, along with other acts of adulation. It was determined that Fauci should have a security detail. Azar also has a security detail because he is in the presidential line of succession.”
