This was blunt straight talk needed to wake people up. Some will always refuse to listen and then it'll be too late for them.

Well yes we'd stop the pandemic if we were frozen six feet apart for two weeks. Since we'd all die in under one.. Couldn't help myself 😂

We won't mind teaching the US how to stop this pandemic as long as the US would collaborate with us. But obviously, your president thinks otherwise.

Nasty hit on Trump. The Italians are failing, the US is making great strides on testing and treatments, drugs, etc.
