Anthony Fauci on Sunday said Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-Wis.) comments that the infectious disease expert “overhyped” the AIDS epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic are “preposterous,” adding “I don’t have any clue of what he’s talking about.”
Asked about Johnson’s comments by co-host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Fauci said he did not know how to respond to such a remark considering the high death tolls caused by both AIDS and COVID-19.
The article goes on to state the following:
“How do you respond to something as preposterous as that? Overhyping AIDS, its killed over 750,000 Americans and 36 million people worldwide. How do you overhype that? Overhyping COVID, It’s already killed 780,000 Americans and over 5 million people worldwide,” Fauci said.

Fauci was responding the Johnson’s claim on “The Brian Kilmeade Show” Wednesday, insisting that Fauci “did the same exact thing with AIDS. He overhyped it.”
Dr. Fauci has faced a wide range of criticism for his actions during the AIDS epidemic. Specifically for promoting theories about “the possibility that routine close contact, as within a family household, can spread the disease,” back in May 1983, according to the American Institute of Economic Research.
The institute noted that Fauci’s theory sounded the alarm throughout news outlets, as “the media went to work stoking alarm about AIDS transmission through simple routine contacts. Hundreds of newspapers disseminated the distressing theory from Fauci’s article.”
Social media users shared a clip of Fauci speaking to a media outlet about the AIDS epidemic, and spreading the same theory about “close contact.”

“He created all kinds of fear, saying it could infect the entire population when it couldn’t, and he’s doing, he’s using the exact same playbook with COVID: ignoring therapy, pushing a vaccine,” Johnson said Wednesday.
“The solution to this I’ve always felt was early treatment,” he added. “We still haven’t robustly explored that and that’s a travesty.”
