Mannie Witz, Agrizzi's lawyer, said, "in essence, the specialist team of doctors that are dealing with Mr Agrizzi and have set out his chronic medical condition and they have confirmed that he is extremely high risk, should he contract SARS COVID-virus and because of his underlying conditions." 

"They say he should not be making any public appearances up until such time that either the pandemic is controlled or he receives a suitable vaccine."
