(Natural News) Top American infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci has announced that his new book will be released in November 2021. The eighty-page book entitled, “Expect the Unexpected: Ten Lessons on Truth, Service and the Way Forward” contains wisdom that Fauci says he wants to share with the world. But many are criticizing the doctor for reportedly “profiting” from the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
A now-deleted Amazon listing described the book as “offering an intimate view of one of the world’s greatest medical minds.” Barnes and Noble also lauded Fauci’s book, saying: “Those looking to live a more compassionate and purposeful life will find inspiration in his unique perspective on leadership, expecting the unexpected, and finding joy in difficult times.” It also said that the book offers a “universal message on how to lead in times of crisis and find resilience in the face of disappointments and obstacles.”
The book, priced at $18 for a pre-order copy, is set to hit bookstore shelves on Nov. 2. But ahead of its release date, many took to social media to share their sentiments toward the infectious disease doctor. Three U.S. representatives from the Republican Party tweeted a salvo of criticism aimed at Fauci.
North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop noted how Fauci “never missed a paycheck” while advocating that people lose theirs. He also said that Fauci’s lockdown mandates destroyed livelihoods and threatened children’s futures. Reports suggest that Fauci is the highest-paid employee in the federal government, with an annual salary of more than $400,000 as of January 2021.
Meanwhile, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan posted: “Dr. Fauci took away your First Amendment rights during the pandemic, [but] relied on the First Amendment to write his new book.”
Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs kept it short with a one-sentence tweet: “Profiting from the pandemic with a book deal is truly a new low.”
Fauci’s flip-flopping decisions on public health are not wisdom
The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has been on the receiving end of criticism for his inconsistent advice, which, according to his critics, only served to muddle the waters when it came to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Back in October 2020, Fauci advised Americans to wear face masks both indoors and outdoors. Responding to a question by Hawaii Lt. Gov. Josh Green about contracting the coronavirus in public places like the beach, Fauci said: “[You wouldn’t want] to be wearing a mask when you jump in the water. But when you come out [and] when [you are] congregating [with other people], put a mask on.”
But just last April, Fauci acknowledged that outdoor COVID-19 transmission is actually very low. During an appearance on This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, he said people have a very low risk of contracting the Wuhan coronavirus outdoors. Many, on the other hand, pointed out that a month prior to this interview, Fauci warned that it was “risky business” for states to lift mask mandates. (Related: Flip-flopping?

Fauci also flip-flopped when it came to the issue of double-masking. Back in January, Fauci insisted that wearing two masks to protect against COVID-19 was “common sense.” He explained during an interview with TODAY: “If you have a physical covering with one layer [and] you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective. That’s the reason why you see people either double masking or doing a version of an N95 [respirator.]”
But days later, Fauci contradicted his advice during a virtual fireside chat sponsored by the National Education Association. Speaking to the heads of two teachers’ unions who joined him in the chat, he said: “There is nothing wrong with wearing two masks, but there is no data that indicates that it makes a difference.” He also said that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention itself does not recommend people wear two masks.
