President Alberto Fernandez He reiterated his concern about the rise in coronavirus cases in the country and warned about the lack of care for young people. “I want to call everyone to reflect and that we all bear in mind that the pandemic is not over”, the head of state remarked, during an act near the Chapadmalal tourist complex, where he rested this weekend.
“In the moment of relaxation of the summer, one forgets that there is a pandemic circulating and is neglected. And those who are most neglected are our young people”, the President warned, after announcing the promulgation of the new retirement mobility law and launching the Anses Verano campaign. “I have been their age and I know that for many to go dancing or playing soccer with friends is nice. Everything is nice, unless there is a virus in the middle that is infecting us “, added.
As reported by LA NACION in its edition today, specialists detected an increase in Covid-19 infections in young people between 20 and 29 years old during the last three weeks. They represent one in four new infected.
During his speech, Fernández highlighted that Covid-19 cases are growing “worrisome” in Mar del Plata and other cities on the coast at the beginning of the summer season. “The pandemic is not over and it is something that we must all bear in mind,” he insisted.
Accompanied by the Buenos Aires governor, Axel Kicillof, and the head of the National Administration of Social Security (Anses), Fernanda Raverta, the President said that he will resort to “individual responsibility” of the population before the rise of infections.
“The vaccine will give immunity to a significant number of Argentines, but in the meantime we cannot play with fire because the virus is circulating”, the President pointed out.
“For this reason, I resort to the individual responsibility of each one, that each one understands the risk we are running. A young man who becomes ill has to stay at home for a few days, but if he makes his elders ill, he puts the lives of his elders at risk. What we want is to take care of everyone’s life, “he added.
Fernández will meet next Friday with Kicillof and the head of the Buenos Aires government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, to evaluate measures for the metropolitan area (AMBA). Fearing that there will be a strong outbreak of cases, the Government is evaluating night closings to prevent the virus from circulating.
