Coronavirus: How Colombia's scientists may have prevented a presidential lynching

by Adriaan Alsema March 23, 2020

Colombia’s President Ivan Duque wasn’t too alarmed about the coronavirus until the National Health Institute (INS) told him on Friday he was heading towards a holocaust.

Before that, Duque only knew the coronavirus was going to be a costly affair, which he is probably why on Friday afternoon he met up with Colombia’s most famous quack, immunologist Manuel Elkin Patarroyo.

. . .

Duque finds out he could fall victim to a public lynching
Using the Health Ministry’s projections, this would means that Duque sooner rather than later would have to explain to the Colombian people why 515,000 people died, not even counting those dying for not having access to health care.

. . .

On his knees, he got the support from opposition leader Gustavo Petro and Bogota Mayor Claudia Lopez, who did know about the mortality rate and know Duque is a dead man walking.
