The actor explains the importance of this research to make centers that are normally studied HIV: “In China they have found a vaccine but we do not know if it will serve only for the current strain.Keep in mind that the coronavirus can mutate and 25 years ago that the professionals who fight against Aids are dealing with HIV, which mutates a lot, and can bring all its experience to this new global battle. That is why it is so important for us to help in your research”. Donations can be made from the web yomecorono.com.
By raising awareness of the younger
This social media campaign is not the first time we see Marc Clotet and his father working side by side. In 2017, Dr. Bonaventura Clotet and his son visited the contestants of the Academy of operación Triunfo. The aim of the talk was to inform them of Aids and to share a message of de-stigmatization of this disease.
