His wife and his three adult daughters, Jennifer, 34, Megan, 31, and Alison, 28, have also received threats.
In an interview with CNN he said: “Getting death threats for me and my family and harassing my daughters to the point where I have to get security is just, I mean, it’s amazing."
“I wish that they did not have to go through that.”
The 79-year-old doctor who is a member of the White House pandemic task force, noted that some “anti-science” sentiment in the US is making it difficult for people to follow COVID-19 mitigation measures, such as wearing masks.
He said: “I wouldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams that people who object to things that are pure public health principles are so set against it, and don’t like what you and I say, namely in the word of science, that they actually threaten you.
“I mean, that to me is just strange.”CORONA CONFLICT
In recent months, Fauci has become vocal about his fears in opening schools and businesses before the virus is under control.
Trump lashed out at Fauci on Saturday over why the US has had so many coronavirus cases in comparison to Europe, saying the expert is "wrong."
Trump tweeted in retaliation to Fauci's testimony to Congress.
He wrote: "We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000,"
In July, the White House distributed a list of errors they claim Fauci made at the start of the pandemic.
Even President Donald Trump told Fox News in an interview with Chris Wallace, which aired last month, that Fauci is a "little bit of an alarmist".MOST READ IN NEWS'HANG THE NOOSES'Rage as officials knew of warehouse danger that could 'blow up Beirut'BUG'S STRIFEChina hit by ANOTHER virus as 7 killed & 60 infected by ‘tick-borne disease’HOT SPOTSThe 10 places on UK's Covid watch list revealed as app predicts new hotspotsLive BlogHANOVER PROBEMadeleine McCann news: Christian B 'hopes of early release may be dashed'LOVE ISLAND1 in 10 Brits find love after watching 'how to date' vids onlineSTING ON THE TRAILJogger left in agony after huge swarm of bees attacks her while she is out running'THROWN LIKE A BALL'Boy killed by bears after being dragged inside cage at holiday resortBreakingHORROR SMASHTwo kids fighting for life & two seriously injured after car smashes into treeGraphic WarningLUCKY TO BE ALIVEBoy, 6, savaged by ‘loveable’ pet dog who ripped his face apartHEART BREAKINGTense moment TV doc flatlines in A&E in Covid battle as his twin watches on
