The Argentinean government announced on Wednesday night that only two cities in the southern region of the country will remain under strict isolation measures in order to contain the spread of the COVID-19, pointing out that existing social distancing measures will remain for the rest of the nation.

“We are entering a new stage of measures. We will have to take every option available in order to prevent this crisis from getting out of control and reach the worst-case scenario,” Argentinean President Alberto Fernandez said during a video message issued from the Casa Rosada Presidential Palace.

“As indicated, there are only two cities [still] in a situation of sanitary isolation: Bariloche in the Río Negro Province, and Puerto Deseado in the Santa Cruz Province. The rest of Argentina remains under social distancing until December 20th. The pandemic is far from having been eradicated, we have not overcome it,” the leftist leader said.
