A controversial claim was made by a Mexican governor concerning the deadly coronavirus, which spreads fast across the world.




Miguel Barbosa, governor of Puebla City, has said that poor people are immune against coronavirus, claiming that most of the cases in the country are rich.




“If you’re rich, you’re at risk,” the politician said. When you’re poor, no… We poor people are immune.’ We poor people.

However, some scientists dismissed Mr. Barbosa’s claims, called him an “idiot” and said that his idea was’ incredibly silly.’




Mr. Barbosa was criticized by Professor Paul Hunter, a specialist on infectious disease from the University of East Anglia.




MailOnline said:’ It’s a jerk. It’s completely silly. There is no proof at all of what he said.

‘ Nobody is immune except for those that have previously recovered from it.” Dr. Derek Gatherer of Lancaster University added’ That’s the problem of viruses that enter people first.’ COVID-19 was never seen in humans until December.

Mexico is currently in 475 cases and 6 deaths have been reported.
