“Last year, after six years of estrangement, I had spoken to my father again and now he died. I was hit by my old man, because one is far away and I couldn’t help,” Walter said of his relative who was 61, in addition to his 91-year-old grandfather, who was also a victim of the virus. On the other hand, she referred to her mother, who had been detected. “My mom is in Argentina, she’s isolated and symptomless. They’re going to give him a new test,” he said. I’ll walk you on the phone, that’s what I have left. She’s with one of my sisters in Buenos Aires, who lives in the same house but upstairs. This virus is very dangerous,” he said. From this situation and his advanced age, Montillo analyzes the retreat shortly and the situation experienced could advance plans for as soon as possible. Still, it still doesn’t have it defined, but everything points to the end of 2020. “I’ll think very well what I’m going to do, but at the moment this is the last year I’m going to play,” he closed.
