The Minister of the Interior, Eduardo “Wado” by Pedro, pidi hoy “don’t let your guard down” in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, because the population needs to continue taking care of itself “one more time”, and he called on Argentines to be “prepared so that, as soon as we overcome this challenge, we can put all our energy into getting the country we need and want back on track.”
De Pedro’s message joined the president himself Alberto Fernndez. In an interview, Fernandez spoke of the possibility that, due to the increase in cases, restrictive measures are taken. If we see that the situation does not ease and the relaxation continues, we are going to see how the security forces begin to act in the street to dispel people and prevent crowds, said.
Fernndez reactivated yesterday the periodic meetings with Axel Kicillof (Buenos Aires governor) and Horacio Rodrguez Larreta (Buenos Aires head of government). No measures were announced at the meeting due to the increase in coronavirus cases, but After December 31, there could have been.
For his part, the Minister of the Interior aligned himself with the need to “extreme care”. In a message published on his Twitter account, he took stock of the year that ended this midnight, where he highlighted the work carried out by health and asked the population not to abandon care to mitigate the advance of the coronavirus.
“I want to emphasize and thank in this year that the effort of the workers, especially in health, who have put their bodies and even their lives in the fight to take care of us, ends,” he said.
And I point out that “it has been a very hard year. We had to live something that nobody expected. A pandemic that turned the world upside down. But the Argentines, each one from his place, we are fighting it“, he stressed.
In that line, the head of the Interior portfolio said: “I know the effort and also the fatigue that we all have, the desire to return to normalcy. But we still can’t let our guard down. There is less left, and we need to continue taking care of ourselves for a while longer. “
