Truly, from even the most difficult circumstances often arise the most beautiful miracles.
Such as this:
Dr. Anthony Fauci and his wife's net worth grew by $5 million during the COVID-19 pandemic as thousands of US residents struggled financially, according to a government spending watchdog group.
The combined wealth of the 81-year-old retiring director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and his bioethicist wife, Christine Grady, soared from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the end of 2021, according to a report from the non-profit OpenTheBooks.
"Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely," the group's CEO, Adam Andrzejewski, told Fox News Digital. "While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic."
Yes, that's correct: After aggressively advocating the lockdowns, shutdowns, distancing measure and other policies that have thrown the U.S. into the worst economic turmoil in many years, Fauci is waking up with absolute fistfuls of cash he didn't have before all of this.
And where did he get all of that money?
"Fauci's soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world and an ever-larger investment portfolio," Andrzejewski said.
Ahhh, but don't worry about it: Remember the federal government sent you a few $1200 checks a couple years ago? Remember those sweet paydays?
See, you're pretty much as rich as Fauci himself!
