Reporter: To novel Coronavirus detection in America, you need only one eyeball.
Linda Tilrado, a journalist who was shot in the left eye by a rubber bullet at a protest in Minneapolis on May 29, has been left permanently blind.
In an interview with CBC News, Ms. Tilardo said, “I am an Uninsured American facing three major eye surgeries. On the plus side, I have finally done the Novel Coronavirus test. So in the United States you want to do the Coronavirus test with just one eye eyeball.”
“The problem is the system. In the United States, police have been allowed to kill black people and brown people with impunity. What I want to see is that this power structure can be changed.”
Earlier, the New York Times reported that during the wave of protests across the US, journalists were attacked in several places after revealing their identities to police.
Several reporters confirmed that us police fired rubber bullets with pepper bullets.
