Please don´t go out if you don´t have to go out. It’s very important, it´s been stressed a lot.”
He also highlighted the need to follow the guidelines on social distance because it has shown positive results in controlling the spread of COVID-19. He said that it can make “a big difference” while a vaccine is developed. “I believe this method is helping. I´m positive about this. I think this can really make a big difference. Meanwhile, we are putting this on the hands of scientists, doctors, and people who are fighting a way to find a vaccine.”
