The president of the Community of Madrid has despised the “opinion” of Yolanda Fuentes in 2020 and has stressed “that she was not responsible for the pandemic”, in front of the current director, who “has not abandoned, and that she has been in the moments more difficult”. “Forget me”, has settled on Twitter Fuentes.
