The positive case of the unionist appears amid a rebound in Covid-19 infections in the country. Yesterday, the Ministry of Health of the Nation reported that during the last 24 hours 145 deaths and 11,765 new positive cases of COVID-19 were registered. With these data, the total number of infected amounts to 1,613,928 and the fatalities total 43,163.

Due to the rise in positive cases, President Alberto Fernández Yesterday he thawed the usual photo of the beginning of the pandemic and received the head of the City Government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, and the Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof at the Olivos Presidential House. The meeting was shorter than those at the beginning of the strict quarantine, but it signaled the concern that exists at the top of political power about an increase in coronavirus cases that were expected later.

The three leaders agreed that there is a relaxation as a result of the general tiredness of the citizens and an equivocal feeling that the worst of the pandemic is over. The yellow lights came on when massive concentrations began to take place in public spaces, such as the farewell to Diego Maradona in downtown Buenos Aires and the River caravan two years before the Madrid final, and they turned red last week, when the curve accelerated again after the Christmas meetings and the traditional dinners to say goodbye to the year.
