On Tuesday, Nov. 10, Brooklyn President Eric Adams hosted his second Brooklyn COVID Heroes ceremony outside Borough Hall, recognizing Brooklynites from all walks of life who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic.

“It is a privilege to recognize a widely admired public health official and a proud son of Brooklyn, Dr. Anthony Fauci, as one of our COVID Heroes,” Adams stated. “Since the beginning of this pandemic, Dr. Fauci has been a reassuring champion of science and reason who has navigated our nation through turbulent times. Dr. Fauci is the best of what public service can be, and we are so proud to be able to welcome him back (virtually) to his home borough as we thank him for his heroic and life-saving leadership.”
