He asserted that “the problem is that I got it in the most wrong place in the world: in China.” «Here they take cases of morbidity as seriously as if three years had not passed and they had not learned anything and they are for the total separation of any person exposed to the sick. The patients themselves are admitted to special hospitals, “he added.

It is worth mentioning that China is currently registering one of the most severe outbreaks of COVID-19, which is why it has implemented restrictive measures, which have been reduced due to the protests of thousands of protesters.
