American media report that the 81-y-o Dr Fauci, who was clearly a big influence on the Jacinda regime’s Dr Bloomfield, will leave his posts in December, having served in the US government for almost four decades.

He became the face of America’s coronavirus response, gaining fans and opponents, including former US President Donald Trump. But Leftists loved him for the imposition of harsh social control: on Monday, Joe Biden thanked him for his “spirit, energy, and scientific integrity”.

Republicans have announced that if they gain control of Congress in the November elections, Dr Fauci’s activities will be investigated.
