Assoc. Prof. Mangarov once again assured that there is no confrontation between him and the National Operational Headquarters.
“I have no confrontation with anyone. I am here to help and have fun “, said Assoc. Prof. Mangarov.
“Everything that was done was done with the best intentions and in order to save people’s lives. It is an honor for the Prime Minister to hear the voice of science, ie. me. Even in the 40th minute of our conversation, he told me: “Look what, Mangarov, if I were a woman, I would let you go.” We talked for about an hour and I think he heard me very well then and understood what I was saying, ” he revealed.
In conclusion, the infectious disease specialist said that with the easing of measures, he does not expect any apocalypse in the fall in connection with the return of COVID-19 predicted by a number of experts.
