Argentina’s health authorities launched a house-to-house operation to search for close contacts of coronavirus-infected persons in the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, the capital city that is the epicenter of the pandemic in this South American country.
South America: the 10 countries with the highest number of COVID-19 cases.
So far, Argentina has 21,037 COVID-19 cases, 642 dead, and 6,180 patients recovered. The 85 percent of infected people live in either the capital city or the Buenos Aires province, where the national government ordered that the mandatory quarantine continues until June 28.
Starting next Monday, most Argentine provinces will begin a de-escalation of the quarantine and will enter a phase of mandatory social distancing.
Although many economic activities will resume, attendance at schools will continue to be suspended.
