Why does India need its Anthony Fauci?

As of 10th May, 2021 India recorded 366,000 new cases and 3745 deaths. It is slightly better than that of 6th May, 2021 when more than 400,000 new cases were appearing in a day but the situation is still grim.

India needs an experienced virologist who has worked with the government in the past as the head of “COVID India Task Force”. The current members have obviously failed in their duties which is self-evident from soaring cases and deaths. Shortage of oxygen supply, hospital beds and delayed vaccination.

Who is Anthony Fauci?

Anthony Stephen Fauci born on December 24, 1940 is an American physician-scientist and immunologist who serves as the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the chief medical advisor to the president.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Anthony Fauci was one of the lead members of President Donald Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force.

The COVID India Task Force constructed by the government of India was unable to perform its primary duties to warn the government against mishaps such as the large gathering at Kumbh Mela in January, the oxygen crisis, the second wave of COVID-19 and the different variants found abroad and in India.

The COVID India Task Force did not hold a meeting even once with the central government in the month of February and March on its response to the pandemic.

The election conversing and rallies in the states of Tamil Nadu, Assam, Puducherry, Kerala and the biggest in West Bengal showed the failure of Election Commission of India(E.C.I.) and the ignorance of COVID India Task Force to inform the E.C.I. of the outcome of such large gatherings at the time of a pandemic.

So yes, India is in dire need of a dynamic and experienced health activist and virologist with prior work experience with the government on such large scale events like Anthony Fauci of U.S.A.


  1. They may want to maintain scientific failure and control. Have science produced a cure for the common cold. Nope! A higher supreme Authority need to be embraced in all venue. “Perfect love casteth out fear.” Love is all in all to every human needs.
