The Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof will lead today a meeting with mayors of the Atlantic coast to assess the health situation of the tourist areas of the province and the control and prevention mechanisms implemented, given the increase in coronavirus cases registered in recent weeks.

The meeting between Kicillof and the communal chiefs will be held, from 12.30 pm, at the “San Bernardo” Cultural Center of the La Costa Party, according to the Télam agency.

After that meeting, the president will head a press conference in which it will provide details on the epidemiological situation in Buenos Aires.
