– … Gennady Grigorievich, the news from the USA is not very good. Biden began to cough, and he began to feel worse. What advice would you give to your American colleagues?
– Well, it’s hard to advise without knowing the picture.
What he got worseunfortunately, this is to be expected. Because getting infected with the coronavirus twice a month is still something you have to be able to do.
The President of the United States has professional doctors (and this is without any exaggeration), they will deal with him.
But the fact that he (I repeat) becomes infected twice within a month is bad.
This suggests that he has a very low level of … body resistance. Well, first of all, the immune system is worn out.
The situation is complicated, probably, by the fact that the first time he still did not recover.
This is when he had his first infection.
My colleagues will figure it out, and let him recover.
– And what would you advise your colleagues, the Americans?
– Well, how can I advise them something if they are standing in front of him, and you and I are 6 thousand kilometers from him? What can be advised, except for general reasoning? We will not advise them anything, but, bearing in mind our previous conversation, we will say that Biden’s health and his quick recovery is not only his problem, and not only the problem of the United States.
Biden needs to be healthy. Because, except for him, even with his current state, no one in the United States is capable and will not be able to make more or less adequate decisions.
… And the situation in the world is very complicated.
