An unprecedented situation requires unprecedented action. For the first time in history, Argentines must make mandatory quarantine.
Mandatory quarantine. President Alberto Fernández decided to take extreme measures to deal with the crisis in the country and the world, something that happens for the first time in Argentina's history . Never before, in democracy, have measures of this magnitude been applied, responding to an unprecedented situation: a pandemic that is advancing at unprecedented speeds.
To try to contain the advance of virus, and that the health system does not collapse, the president issued a decree of necessity and urgency , which provided for “social isolation, preventive and compulsory” — in principle — from midnight on 20 March to 31 March inclusive. You can only leave for strictly activities necessary, such as the provision of food and medicines.
Nearby businesses — such as supermarkets, warehouses, pharmacies and hardware stores — remain open, but the security forces control people circulating on the street and corroborate the reasons. Whoever breaks the quarantine and goes out on the street for no valid reason will be subject to sanctions.
However, some activities and services are exempted from the forty because they are considered essential to ensure the supply of food, medicines and fuels, and the functioning of health and safety systems.
In this regard, article 6 of the Decree establishing compulsory quarantine stipulates that the movements of “persons affected by the activities and services declared essential” should “be limited to strict compliance with those activities and services”.
