On "The Axe Files" podcast, Axelrod asked Fauci about how he's become a target during the pandemic, as people who have suffered economic hardships have become angry.

"I've seen a side of society that I guess is understandable, but it's a little bit disturbing," Fauci said.

When Axelrod asked if he took on security measures, Fauci said yes, he's been given security.

The Department of Justice confirmed in April that federal officials were ramping up security for Fauci after threats were made against him.

In this week's interview, Fauci called the politicization of the coronavirus, "a reflection of the divisiveness in our society at the political level."

He said the coronavirus is a public health issue and "what we're talking about are fundamental principles of public health.".

Fauci also addressed expectations for the pandemic, saying "we could start talking about real normality again" in 2021 with the development and implementation of a COVID-19 vaccine. »
