“Most do not have antibodies and that the weather favors the spread, which means that in the next 15-20 days the cases will start to rise.”

He pointed out that “all these data do not make me at all optimistic” and said that “we should forget the opening on December 7”. He also warned that “we will not have regular holidays, we do not have the idea that we will have crowds of consumers in stores.” characteristics.

He called on citizens to pay special attention, noting that at this stage, the focus is on homes. “Christmas alone. “No family, no one around us,” he said.
