Anthony Fauci, on day 26 of his Paxlovid- and vaccine-enhanced Corona experience, says that he is "Close to if not at 100% the way I was before infection"
Despite not only following, but embodying, The Science, global vaccinator-in-chief Anthony Fauci caught Corona while attending a school reunion on 11 June. While most Omicron infections resolve within a week, the quadruple-vaccinated NIAID director and blight upon human civilisation suffered Paxlovid rebound, ten days ago, and is now approaching a month of infection.
Yesterday, he ended his radio silence to give some press interviews:
I believe I’m about close to if not at 100% the way I was before infection. So I’m really fortunate that I’ve done very well. And I keep telling people when they ask me that, is that I was vaccinated, and doubly boosted, and I believe if I did not have that degree of background protection I would’ve had a much more serious course. My course was relatively light minor symptoms, and right now I’m completely without symptoms and I feel very good, very energetic.
Nonzero chance he rebounds again.
