Bonjour à tous

Merci Loganaden et M. Moonesamy d'avoir partagé cette conversation avec moi. Est-ce que l'un d'entre vous sait si à l'heure qui l'est, des cas ont été détectés à Maurice?

I respect your opinion on the matter. In my opinion, it's fairly easy
to get the new variants domains even for novice admins as researchers
are publishing them online, without restrictions.
