Mexican governor says poor are immune to coronavirus

QUERETARO, Mexico

A state governor in Mexico has triggered outrage in the country by claiming that “poor people” are immune from the novel coronavirus.

Luis Miguel Barbosa, the governor of Puebla, said earlier this week at a press conference that poor people in Mexico should not worry about the global pandemic.

“If you are rich, you have a risk. If you are poor, no. The poor are immune,” he said.

There is nothing to support the idea that only rich people are at risk of the coronavirus. The governor said people who travel could be at more risk, and he linked the ability to travel with people who are rich. He then assumed that poor people were not in danger.

1. He's very confused and describing Affluenza, the

rich people's disease. He may already be a victim of the corona virus, of maybe he has both.
