  • The letter said the misinformation undermines the United States’ response to the pandemic, adding that “routine public health measures have become unnecessarily controversial.”

What are they saying: “We condemn the personal attacks on Dr. Fauci.” read the letter “The criticism is false, unscientific, wrong in facts and, increasingly, motivated by partisan politics.”

  • “It’s a distraction from what should be the national focus – working together to address a pandemic that’s killing about 500,000 people a year.”
  • “We are grateful for Dr. Fauci’s dedication and tireless efforts to help the country through this pandemic and other health crises,” it continued.
