On the day that more cases of COVID-19 were registered in Argentina, Alberto Fernández announced the extension of the quarantine until Sunday, May 24. “All Argentina will go to the phase of progressive reopening (phase 4) except the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (AMBA) that will continue in the current geographic segmentation scheme (phase 3) ”, stated the President.

“The number of cases has been slowed down a bit more and the number of deaths is within what we expected could happen”, reflected the President. “For every million inhabitants, Argentina has 6 deaths, so the effort we are making makes a lot of sense, our country represents 0.3% of the cases in America“He added.


All of Argentina will pass to the phase of progressive reopening (phase 4) except the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (AMBA), which will continue in the current geographic segmentation scheme (phase 3), ”announced President Alberto Fernández.

The President, together with the head of the Buenos Aires government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, and together with the governor of the province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, announced the extension of the quarantine until Sunday, May 24.


In dialogue with Infobae, the doctor Angela Gentile, Chief of Epidemiology at the Ricardo Gutiérrez Children’s Hospital and member of the committee of experts that advises the President, stated: “the strategy of preventive and compulsory social isolation (ASPO) is paying off, since unlike other distant countries and also in the region, our country does not have a saturated health system, there are beds and artificial respirators available, the contagion curve is flattened and most importantly, people have responsibly assumed the measures to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus ”.

“Today, although it is flattened, as it is often called, the curve is ascending but controlled. We expected an increase in cases for May and we worked so that it was not abrupt or exponential, that the dreaded peak is not there and with this we achieved an amecetate curve, with a health system capable of responding and without being overwhelmed by serious patients in intensive care“Gentile said.

And I add: “At the beginning of the quarantine we duplicated the cases every 3 days. Then it happened every 10 days and now we are in 25 days in the whole country. That is why this isolation was effective, especially in the big cities of the country, CABA and the suburbs. And I highlight the responsibility of the community, since it is the key to being able to open the quarantine and leave in an orderly manner. ”

For the specialist, the exit from quarantine should be gradual: “I imagine an exit with stages in which activities are relaxed. Relax 25% of activities, then 50% and so on, moving forward. Obviously, these percentages vary depending on where you live. Flexibility in large cities is not the same as in cities or towns with less than 500,000 inhabitants and where today they have few infections.

And he emphasized: “The most risky to make quarantine more flexible is the use of transport because it cuts across all activities and makes everything that makes distancing more complicated.. For example, educational activities mobilize 15% of transport. We are going to have to start working differently. Order ourselves as a society. Do not all go to work at the same time, in the same shift, with the same departure times. We must put everything massive in order. It is the only way to reorganize all activities until a vaccine appears. ”

According to the doctor Daniel Stecher, Head of Infectology at the Hospital de Clínicas, “When you face a pandemic, the important thing is to have a limited number of cases, where the seriously ill are not many and in which the health system does not collapse regardless of the duration of the case.. In these parameters, the Argentine strategy is being successful and there are many positive things in the work that we are doing against COVID-19 ”.

Analyzing the latest extension of the quarantine ordered by the Government, Stecher stated that “Isolation will be progressively lifted depending on the possibilities and needs of the population, but we have a long time to deal with this virus, because they are difficult to eliminate. We have to prepare ourselves to live with this coronavirus for a long time. Surely in the future we will have a vaccine to contain it. And in some cases, with effective treatments for seriously ill patients ”.

The number of cases of COVID-19 in the urban settlements of the city of Buenos Aires, where there are already more than 410 infected, is of concern (Franco Fafasuli /)


For the doctor Eduardo López, an infectious medicine doctor who is a member of the Committee of Experts that advises President Alberto Fernández, “the quarantine must gradually become more flexible, complying with the guidelines that were set out given that the geographical segmentation phase has given good results, there are several provinces that have not had cases in the last 30 days. This means that the duplication of cases, which was a goal, every 25 days some provinces have exceeded it and others have met it. For example, Santa Fe, Córdoba are very close. With which you can gradually relax both the social axis and the productive commercial axis. ”

It is not going to go out lifting the entire quarantine, which is obvious, but there are some axes of the quarantine that are going to be maintained, such as school closings, secondly airports, medium and long distance trips, points of border, which must remain closed. Along with this also massive shows, outdoors or in closed environments such as discos, such as cinemas, theaters, must remain closed. AND Something social is likely to become more flexible, such as a recreational activity and retail stores and some SMEs or medium or large companies, in the latter case complying with a strict protocol. which must include as a first option the departure of the operator, of the house employee, until the return home. In other words, transportation is part of the protocol in order to make this more flexible ”, he added.
