What do Argentines do in quarantine?

A survey inquired about the activities carried out by Argentines in quarantine. Are we bored or do we get along?

As we are
¿Qué hacemos los argentinos en cuarentena?

Argentines locked up, not able to meet, isolated, far away. Without Sunday's pasta, without the roasts with friends, without the kill as you pass. Something like what is happening now is unpublished for us. So, how are we doing? What are we quarantined Argentines doing?

To find out, the Institute of Social Sciences and Projectual Disciplines (INSOD) of Fundación UADE conducted a online survey with the aim of investigating different points related to the activities carried out by the population in their homes from the implementation of the preventive and compulsory socialisolation decreed by the national Government. The sample of the survey had an average age of 29 years with a high medium and medium socioeconomic level .

We quarantined Argentines get bored? On a scale of 1 to 10 — in which 1 means “extremely boring” and 10, “quite entertaining” — the average of the responses was 7 points . This means that Argentines are “partially entertained” during this mandatory isolation.
