What Social distancing? Mexican President Defies Covid-19 Concerns (Incl vid tweets)

RT.com news                  Mon., Mar.16, 2020

As governments around the world urge residents to stay indoors and practice ‘social distancing’ due to the coronavirus, Mexico’s Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (pic above) has come under fire for staging huge rallies in spite of the risks.

While politicians in the neighboring US are cancelling rallies, holding crucial debates in empty halls with no audience, and ditching handshakes for elbow bumps, Obrador, also known as AMLO, has taken a drastically different approach – ramping up his public activities instead.

Obrador, who is currently touring the southwestern Mexican state of Guerrero, could be seen shaking hands, taking selfies, hugging, and even kissing his numerous supporters during stops in the cities of Marquelia, Cruz Grande, and in the area of Costa Chica over the weekend.

ALMO has made no secret of his busy schedule, posting an array of videos of his passionate interactions with his supporters on Twitter.

A video from Costa Chica shows him walking past a jubilant crowd, shaking hands and eagerly stopping for selfies. “People on the Costa Chica are excited and happy,” the tweet’s caption reads.

Another video posted on Sunday shows him addressing a huge crowd from a podium set up in the middle of a sea of people.
“I had to get out of the truck several times. It is intense, but the affection of the people is comforting,” Obrador wrote.

Obrador’s ‘business-as-usual’ approach to rallies has sparked a backlash online, with critics accusing him of putting his supporters at risk of contracting the virus, and setting a bad example.

“I voted for you. But don’t be irresponsible at times of risk of contagion. Save yourself and set the example,” a follower wrote.

“What irresponsibility! It’s not all about you, you must lead by example,” another said.
By refusing to bring his campaigning to a halt or make adjustments to reduce the risk of the spread of the virus, Obrador appears to be at odds with the latest recommendations of the Health Ministry.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.

    ‘Social distancing’. More Neo Bolshevik ‘political correctness’. Hey Shlomo! Fuck you and your idiot designs on getting the ‘gullible goyim’ on board. You may get a few of them to sing along from your trifling ‘hymnbook’ of borg hive minded imbecility, but not all. Take a flying leap off the nearest high cliff. Enjoy the ‘drop’. Hope its a ‘smashing suck $ess’.
