The governor of Chaco,

Jorge Capitanich

, formalized a controversial decision to enforce the restrictions against the second wave of the coronavirus: he authorized the

cut off of public services

in those homes where sanitary regulations are not met.

In addition to adhering to the new provisions set by the Casa Rosada to try to slow down the rate of infections, the governor of Chaco decided to implement a "Special Provision" to punish those who do not comply with the measures. 

Through Decree 792/21, it established that "State companies that provide public services will be empowered to interrupt the service in those buildings in which, in addition to failing to comply with the restriction of events, irregularities or alterations are registered in the declaration of category of user or declared power ".

In this regard, it was specified that the Ministry of Security and Justice will be in charge of carrying out the controls to detect irregularities and request the cut off of public services. 

The procedure defined by Capitanich indicates that those responsible for the Security area must notify "the borrowing company of the infringement committed, identifying the person responsible and the location of the property."

The measure is part of a package of actions with which Capitanich tries to minimize the impact of the second wave of the coronavirus in that province. 

"The provincial government adhered to Decree 235/21 of the National Executive Power, which from this Friday, April 9 until next Friday, April 30, establishes restrictions as a consequence of the exponential increase in coronavirus cases that has been registered throughout the country," they explained .

Through a statement, they added that, for this, "the Ministry of Security and Justice, in coordination with the provincial and national forces, will strengthen the controls at the border accesses and in the border area with Paraguay, providing more agents and technological devices."

Additionally, it was ratified "the restriction of circulation hours and operating modes of certain activities, prioritizing the maintenance of the presence of classes and economic activity."

For this reason, there will be "focal blocks where

more than six cases

are registered

within a radius of 200 meters

; isolation monitoring for people from abroad; application for permits to enter the province through Your Digital Government; among other specific measures. ".
