Dr. Anthony Fauci and Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention Director George Gao’s email exchanges were exposed Tuesday by the Washington Post, depicting a cozy relationship with his Chinese counterpart.
“I saw the Science interview, how could I say such a word ‘big mistake’ about others? That was journalist’s wording. Hope you understand,” Gao wrote to Fauci March 28, 2020.
“Lets work together to get the virus out of the earth,” he added.
“I understand completely. No problem,” Fauci responded. “We will get through this together.”
On April 8, 2020, Gao wrote, “I saw some news (hope it is fake) that [you] are being attacked by some people. Hope you are well under such a irrational situation.”
Fauci wrote back three days later. “Thank you for your kind note. All is well despite some crazy people in this world.”
