Fauci stated that the accusations were dangerous not only for him but also for the scientific community.

“It’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous,”He said. “To me, that’s more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown at me. I’m not going to be around here forever, but science is going to be here forever.”
