The majority are young people and also boys, but the dead are just a few. And then, ‘God is african’, as it says here, the people, and takes care of them with the most kindness,” – adds the dedicated missionary in the parish of Bom Pastor. “Certainly our people have the most strength and antibodies, it observed, also due to the various pandemics suffered throughout their history. However, now, we have gone from ‘curfew’ to the ‘state of calamity’: Luanda is always isolated and surrounded by the army. Do not exit and do not enter our Province. They are manned even the rivers that form the border of the Province. But at least they let us keep the open-air market three days a week, otherwise people would die of hunger.”
