“We will report it and it will be a first-class service, even if the conservatives joke and say that it will not be like Denmark, and no, it will not be like Denmark, because Denmark’s. serves a little population, Denmark has fewer inhabitants,” he said.
That’s why ours is better than Denmark. This will be a global example, the right to health is not guaranteed anywhere,” he said.
