Question: Whom would you like to interview, and what would you ask?
Anthony Fauci: Who would I like to interview? Well I actually would like to interview some of the leaders in developing countries like in South Africa, for example, as one – but that’s just one of a few – and try to get them to articulate to me why they are not doing certain things in their country that everyone else seems to appreciate from the outside that they should be doing.
Why are they not paying much more attention to some of the suffering of the people in their own country? Now, they may have a very good reason for it, but I’d like to pose the tough questions to them as to why they’re not doing that.
