- Why did you decide to study medicine?
I have always wanted to be a doctor and there is no specific reason, except that it has always been there, so when the opportunity arose I just took it. In the future I would like to do internal medicine or cardiology, depending on whether I like one or the other.
- Coronavirus: What did they say in the lectures?
Well… precisely because I come from a medical school, we were pretty sure that something was going to happen. We knew that if Italy had fallen, we would be next, but right up to the last moment, the Rectorate of the University told us that nothing would happen, that classes would continue. More or less, we and the professors knew that it wasn’t true, that the country would probably go into quarantine.
- Did we react well as a country?
Well, I am not going to judge the action of the Spanish government, but we have examples of countries that have done much better. South Korea is a good example. They started before us, they have not reached such an important peak and they have finished before us. We have not been the best, if I can say that phrase; there are countries that have done much, much better, definitely. There are also some that have done a lot worse.
- How was the confinement in Unihabit?
The first month I didn’t go out of the residence at all, now I do go out more, to throw out the rubbish, do the shopping at the most, but we are all still confined here. On the other hand, as my flatmate is not here, I have a bit more space, so I take the opportunity to do some exercise, sometimes I go for a little walk around the residence, don’t I? At least to stretch my legs a bit and… It’s quieter, basically because there’s hardly anyone there and I can leave the door of the room open… It’s absolutely quiet!
