Fauci, hero or villain? And the hidden origin of the virus

How did you feel about this affair?

Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, funded research into dangerous viruses at the laboratory in Wuhan, China, where Covid-19 may have escaped. He is also the subject of a US congressional investigation for subjecting puppies to cruel experiments, in which they were eaten alive by insects.

You won’t see this doctor in the documentary “Fauci”, available on Disney +. The controversies were put aside to present him as a simple man, an exemplary father, a reference in the field of medicine and a hero in the fight against AIDS. In the “mouths of the people” for having been the face of the efforts to fight the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States, Fauci has in this biographical documentary a kind of “confidential file” on his life, in which bad decisions , failures or setbacks.

But is the biography of a man made only of success and applause? Why didn’t Disney want to show the less popular side of Fauci? That’s what we’ll be discussing in this episode of Quarantine Cult.
