After meeting with Axel Kicillof and Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, President Alberto Fernández warned this Friday that he is evaluating that the security forces take to the streets “to dissipate people” in the face of the increase in coronavirus infections and anticipated that they will do a “follow-up weekly “of the situation.
“We made the decision to get together again next week, do a weekly follow-up, let the 31st pass. And if we see that the situation does not ease and the relaxation continues, see how the security forces start to act in the streets to dispel the people and to prevent these agglomerations from happening, “he said.
In statements to Radio 10, the president assured that with Larreta and Kicillof they have the feeling that “December was a very relaxed month that led to social gatherings and that it enabled marches to take place in Buenos Aires, for different reasons, “and he expressed concern with what, he said, he saw on the night of December 24.
“Young boys who meet in the squares without chinstraps, with music going all out, and since the clubs are closed, they end up in crowded squares. And the existence of clandestine parties that are promoted by social networks. All that. It is a breeding ground for the virus and it is something we have to pay attention to because it is something very dangerous, “he stressed.
The clear increase in coronavirus cases in recent weeks brought Fernández back together with Kicillof and Larreta, who met on Wednesday afternoon in Olivos. There, they analyzed the possibility of resuming some restrictions in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (AMBA) if positive cases continue to increase.
The more than 4,000 daily infections in the Province and the more than a thousand in the City, which were registered on Tuesday and Wednesday, they served to revitalize the dialogue. The meeting at the Olivos residence took place this Friday. It started at 4 p.m. and lasted just over 25 minutes. Fernández, Kicillof and Rodríguez Larreta shared the diagnosis of concern and pointed out the need for society to take extreme care.
During the extensive interview, Fernández also spoke about the arrival of vaccines in Argentina, explained again why the Government had not yet reached an agreement with Pfizer and questioned those who object to the Sputnik V developed by Russia, of which already 300 thousand doses arrived in the country.
The President assured that the Pfizer vaccine “has logistical problems of very complicated transfers” and that this laboratory “asks for as many preventions as no one has asked to guarantee its immunity in the event of failure and that is the vaccine that they require me to bring.”
“I am going to continue the negotiations, but it is striking how the story is. It is not that Argentina has not wanted, it is that Pfizer from the United States have put so many precautions to limit their responsibility that they end up demanding things from me that no other vaccine has required. And it turns out that that seems to be the safest. It is difficult to understand, “he said.
And he continued: “I do not understand why so harsh, so severe with the Gamaleya vaccine, which they purposely call the Russian vaccine. Now they have suddenly questioned the ANMAT. Deep down the only thing they try to do is generate discouragement with everything. They want a people with sit-down arms. “
