“In the Jokers, this has been handled well. Even if not quarantined, there is a bubble. There is very little movement in people’s air. That’s why it’s not scary. ”
Joensuu known for its outspokenness. He doesn’t go around the topic of the corona either. Acknowledging the facts is also wisdom in the trough.
