For his part, the Governor of the Province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, again pointed to the City for the numbers of infected . "The degree of affectation also recognizes differences according to the distance from the City of Buenos Aires, because it is there, in the City and the first cord, in the area called AMBA , where the virus had the strongest impact, obviously due to population density," he said. .
Along the same lines, he continued: "When one says that the first cordon has 354 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, we are saying that for every 100 inhabitants there are 0.3 infections. In the City, with which we share the same urban space, there is a spread every 100 inhabitants. In other words, we see that the most densely populated area is where there are the most infections and that decreases as the area is larger and the demography is different. "
