Now, it was revealed later by Captain Atalanta, Papu Gomez that what actually happened was the attitude of the Italian citizens. They too underestimate the threat of the Corona Virus, even to the point of lying to remain active outside the home.
“They are still determined to walk. Some go out to run, some go to the park for crunches, some take their dogs for a walk because they are bored, even lying to get to the market, ”
“I’m a sportsman, but I don’t go out to exercise. Because it has become my duty, all of us, “said Papu Gomez.
Furthermore, the man from Argentina revealed how the Italians thought the Corona Virus was like an ordinary flu epidemic, so they continued to do their activities as usual.
“People get information wrong. From the beginning we all underestimated this case, because we thought it was just the common cold, so we continued to carry on our activities as usual,” Gomez said again.
