Deborah Birx, who was often seen next to Anthony Fauci during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, until National File exposed that she allowed her medical license to expire and she soon left her government position, has now joined the George W. Bush Institute, and has taken a job where she will design purifiers to remove COVID-19 particles from the air.
Yesterday, a press release from the George W. Bush Institute proudly announced that Birx would join its ranks as a Senior Fellow. “In the role, she will leverage her significant expertise in global health, pandemic response, and health systems to support the Bush Institute’s portfolio of work. She will also take on policy initiatives on how to better position our country to tackle health disparities in the future based off the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Birx is quoted as saying she is “thrilled” to join the ranks of the George W. Bush Institute, and declared, “President and Mrs. Bush witnessed the impact of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic 20 years ago and responded by founding the Global Fund and PEPFAR. They believed the crisis could be tackled with people, funding, and compassion for others.”
On the very same day, it was reported that Birx would take a job at ActivePure Technology, “a Texas manufacturer that says its products reduce COVID-19 on surfaces and in the air.” Birx will “be chief scientific and medical adviser, ActivePure CEO Joseph Urso said.”
It is unclear how much Birx will be compensated for her new roles in the private sector, but her net worth has been estimated to be between $1 million and $5 million.
In its reporting, Newsmax fails to note that Birx received criticism for allowing her medical license to expire, but instead claims Birx “was criticized for not standing up to former President Donald Trump as he downplayed the virus and spread misinformation about its transmission.”
As National File reported, Birx’s medical license “was issued a medical license in Pennsylvania in 1987.” However, “That license expired on December 31, 2014, and it has not been renewed since then, according to the Pennsylvania Licensing System Verification Service, courtesy of the Pennsylvania Department of State.”
