The interfederal spokesperson for the Covid-19 crisis spoke on various subjects, in particular on compliance with health measures. “I respected them 95%. When this was not the case, it was because for an hour or two I saw one or two more people but always with distances, always with precautions”, he explains. “It has been over a year since I kissed my daughter. “
