Better to start another thread since very likely we are starting a new sequence of events.

President Medina will speak at 9:00 pm this Friday

The president will address "the four great challenges ahead" of the country.

I hope he has something of substance to say and clears up a lot of the outstanding questions that are swirling about Borders, airports, how tourism is gong to proceed an epidemic declaration and what that means etc.

Jjj. Yes, please delete the claro que si comment. It is something I wrote about another topic. But did not post. Cannot delete stuff like we could in old format.

The rest of my comment stands.

No substance. No more SOE. Something about a sanitary emergency.

Nothing about opening. Nothing about virus. Alot of BS quite frankly.

For the record Danilo is not running. Ok? The PLD candidate is Gonzalo. It looks like he won't win. But Danilo said until the end of his term, he is going to take care of people. And they have to do their part. And he said a lot about the importance of the election. The curfew ends after tomorrow. And much more subtle detail.

You can read the whole speech here:

Yes he did talk about opening. It is proceeding with the tourist sector as announced 1 de July. And hell yes, he talked about the virus. I think you can read the transcript in the post above. Also last time he spoke someone posted an English translation.

He said he had received enormous pressure from the hotel industry and had no choice but to open the country.

So he has his excuses all lined up even though the PLD is most likely toast for the near term.

Perhaps his speech writers should have consulted with you first. By chance, are you on the 5 July ballot?

Ok. I'll bite. Why are you trashing Danilo? But I guess more interesting, what do you see as the alternatives? Ere Dominicano? All said with respect. Don't get me wrong.

Also did he mention that the diferent programs like FASE, Quedate en casa and so on will be continued at least till he is leaving office...

I tried to post a translation but encountered a new forum error. Posts are limited to 1000 characters apparently so I could not post the translation.

[/QUOTE]
He said he received pressure from hotels and tourism. Is that a reason to open the country in the middle of this mess and receive more covid cases from the US?

I don't know you tell me. It sounds like he has given up.

The alternative is to wait and keep the country locked down and watch Texas and Arizona and Florida and SANTO DOMINGO and other states to follow as they are forced to re-close everything because they never should have re-opened.

Am I Dominican? What do you think?
