Dr. Fauci had a big word this year. He received honors for his efforts and was honored with the Dan David Prize.

NPR reported that Fauci earned his $1 million Israeli prize. It was first established by Italian Israeli philanthropist Dan David. About 10% of the prize goes to academic scholarships in winners’ fields. Dr. Fauci has yet to make a decision on the recipients of these scholarships.

Fauci is “the consummate model of leadership and impact of public health,” as noted in the official statement delivered by the awards committee.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic unraveled, (Fauci) leveraged his considerable communication skills to address people gripped by fear and anxiety and worked relentlessly to inform individuals in the United States and elsewhere about the public health measures essential for containing the pandemic’s spread,” the statement continues.

“In addition, he has been widely praised for his courage in speaking truth to power in a highly charged political environment.”

Some say this statement was a jab on Trump.

In January, Fauci told the New York Times that he had to contradict the former president in order to “avoid the spread of false information.”

“It isn’t like I took any pleasure in contradicting the president of the United States,” Fauci told the Times. “I have a great deal of respect for the office. But I made a decision that I just had to. Otherwise, I would be compromising my own integrity, and be giving a false message to the world. If I didn’t speak up, it would be almost tacit approval that what he was saying was OK.”

The Israeli Prize honors three prizes each year, praising their contribution to society. This year’s prize was focused on health.

Historians Alison Bashford of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Katharine Park of Harvard University, and Keith Wailoo of Princeton University will be sharing their $1 million for analyzing the history of health. Zelig Eshhar of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science, Carl June of the University of Pennsylvania, and Steven Rosenberg of the NIHNational Cancer Institute will share their million for the anti-cancer immunotherapy.

Is Fauci deserving of this prize? There are too many contradictions in his case.
