The Argentine Ministry of Health has offered a new balance of the pandemic situation in the country this Monday, and its numbers show a new record in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area, in front of which the provincial security minister, Sergio Berni, has a new “absolute, more stringent quarantine” and defended “without public transport”.
In the past 24 hours, health authorities have confirmed 2,146 new cases, which were in the capital Buenos Aires, 1,037 in the province and 1,021 in the city.
The total number of confirmed cases has therefore increased to 44,931, while the number of people killed by COVID-19 has now reached 1,043 after the last 32 deaths.
“This virus is associated with social activity. The more social activity, the more infections there are. If we want to preserve and save the great effort that Argentinians have made, we have to go to at least 15 days after a strict quarantine,” said Berni. .
