From the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, one expert came to the fore as a trusted voice, not just in his home country of the United States, but around the globe: Dr Anthony S Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
But while Dr Fauci might not have been a household name before the last year and a half, his career as an infectious disease specialist has spanned four decades, he’s advised seven US presidents, and he was instrumental in the US response to the AIDS epidemic.
This interview is from earlier in the year, as part of an event honouring the late Australian AIDS researcher David Cooper of the University of New South Wales Kirby Institute.
