Question: If you were the leader of your country, how would you have handled the COVID-19 pandemic?
“I believe there is no perfect way to handle this hard situation such as COVID-19, but I believe what I would have done is to create the lockdown even before everything was that big, because we lost so many lives and we cannot afford that. We have to take care of our people, that’s why I would’ve taken care of them since the beginning.”
