Through his account on the social network Twitter, the former president expressed that he shares the concern of Bolivian families about the increase in coronavirus infections. “This is a global problem that affects the economy,” he said.
“Traditional medicine is a complement to conventional medicine. Unlike other countries, Bolivia has ancestral knowledge of natural medicine and our people go to get vaccinated and at the same time use medicinal plants. This is how we take care of each other,” Morales stressed.
We share with Bolivian families the concern about the multiplication of infections. This is a worldwide problem that affects the economy. That is why we insist on asking that they not let their guard down with prevention measures and that everyone complete the vaccination scheme.
