According to a report featured in The Gateway Pundit, while countless small business owners and numerous other Americans economically suffered immeasurably during the height of the pandemic, Dr. Tony Fauci managed to do pretty dang well insofar of having his pockets lined – with his wealth reportedly increasing by roughly $5 million in said period.

In a report from Business Insider back in April of 2021, an estimated 200,000 businesses had to close their doors permanently between March 2020 and February 2021, with the outlet noting that “personal service providers, like hair and nail salons, were the hardest hit, accounting for 100,000 permanent closures.”

Of course, this hardly comes as a shock, considering that amid the height of the pandemic response (in terms of lockdowns and what were deemed as “non-essential” businesses), the reality of accruing back rent and unpaid loans while being unable to properly run certain small businesses left people with no choice but to close up shop.

As many remember from 2020, it would often seem like the only places people could patronize within reason were big box stores like Walmart or placing online orders through Amazon – both of which unsurprisingly raked in billions during the timeframe.

But even for areas around the country that weren’t subjected to intense restrictions on business operations, the fearmongering coming out of figures like Fauci throughout 2020 left some mortified to patronize certain business like eateries and bars.

And while numerous Americans lost their businesses (and therefore, their investments into their businesses), Fauci somehow got a whole lot richer while the pandemic was in full swing.

According to a report from Open The Books, “The Fauci household disclosed net worth increased from $7.6 million (January 1, 2019) to over $12.6 million (December 31, 2021).”

Of course, Fauci has been the recipient of an insane annual compensation compliments of the federal government, with the report highlighting, “Fauci continued to be the most highly compensated federal employee earning $456,000 in 2021 and $480,000 in 2022. Fauci out-earned the president, four-star generals, and roughly 4.3 million other federal bureaucrats.”

But it was the additional income Fauci was landing during the pandemic that really empowered the net worth boost, such as the Dan David Foundation outright giving Fauci $901,400 for “defending science” and “speaking truth to power” back in January of 2021.

Basically, Fauci was given close to a million dollars for his incessant fearmongering around the pandemic that aided in small businesses being destroyed.

There were also gains Fauci accrued from his stock, bond, and money market portfolio, coming to just over $910,000 in 2021 and nearly $800,000 the year prior. Fauci also benefitted from various perks of his government employment that are estimated at around $208,000 as well as netting over $100,000 from disparate royalties he gets from work with publisher McGraw Hill.

While people lost their savings, their businesses, and some even their homes – Fauci made millions while emboldening the economic turmoil.
