Dr. Anthony Fauci Admits He Infected Gays With AIDS in 1984
Here’s the relevant part of what he said; the portion that was shared in the Instagram post is in italics:
At the time, Fauci was director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a title he holds now along with being chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden.
“I’ll get to in some of the later slides how this disease, which we surmised early on, started off in the male homosexual population in this country. Not that there was anything intrinsically different or wrong or what-have-you about homosexuality. It was very simple; it’s straightforward epidemiology. You take an infectious agent and you introduce it into a population in which the spread among those individuals — if it’s sexual-contact spread — it’s a perfect set-up to spread.”
Fauci continued by referring to the first 4,000 cases in the United States.
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, called AIDS, was first recognized as a new disease in 1981 when increasing numbers of young gay men succumbed to unusual opportunistic infections and rare malignancies.
HIV is the virus that can lead to AIDS. HIV infection in humans came from a type of chimpanzee in Central Africa and may have jumped to humans as far back as the late 1800s. The virus has existed in the United States since at least the mid to late 1970s, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
