The National Executive Power

issued on April 8 the Decree of Necessity and Urgency 235/21

, linked to the situation that the country is going through with the coronavirus, and which establishes the general prevention measures and local and focused containment provisions, "based on in scientific evidence and epidemiological dynamics, which all people must comply with, in order to mitigate the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its health impact ", in force until April 30, 2021.

There, the general prevention measures were repeated, which are the general and mandatory rules of conduct, establishing in public and private areas, that distance meters be mandatory, the use of face masks in shared spaces, ventilation of environments, sanitizing hands and the request to cough in the crease of the elbow.

And it was also established, among the rules for the workplace, to promote telework whenever possible, to define that face-to-face classes and face-to-face non-school educational activities are maintained, according to established protocols and suspended throughout the national territory, group trips of graduates, retirees, study and tourist and recreational groups.

But in the text of DNU 235/21 there is an article that is key and that the national government wants to be taken into account by the governors of the entire country:

"The governors are empowered and empowered to adopt additional provisions to those provided in the This decree

, focused, transitory and of local scope, in order to mitigate early infections by Covid-19 with respect to departments or parties with high or medium epidemiological risk, in accordance with the parameters of article 13, and with respect to the parties and departments with less than 40,000 inhabitants. To this end, they

may temporarily limit the performance of certain activities and circulation by hours or by zones

, with the prior agreement of the Provincial or City health authority, as appropriate, "says the fundamental article .

Today, amid the growth of infections (27,001 this Tuesday, April 13),

in the Casa Rosada they "bill" the provincial leaders, the lack of commitment and decisions

of the provincial leaders of all political signs, whom they accuse of wanting only the Alberto Ángel Fernández administration to bear the political cost.

For this reason, the meeting that part of the Cabinet held until late Tuesday in Balcarce 50 focused on the fact that the cost of decisions must be shared and that everything is not left in the exclusive hands of Alberto Fernández.

the official insisted in anger that had key recipients: one, the local mayor, the radical Gustavo Posse, a member of Juntos for the change.

And then, Sergio Berni, the Buenos Aires Minister of Security, turned into a "bad word" for the entire national cast due to his direct confrontation with the President.

"Look if Santilli can say that four bars closed for not complying with schedules and protocols. Four bars in the entire City of Buenos Aires, nothing more?" restrictions.


the national government aims to curb community circulation in the main urban centers

, and considering that the closure in a provincial capital is not the same as in a town with fewer inhabitants, it hopes that before the weekend, the governors will act in concrete.

Meanwhile, the letter of a decree with greater restrictions continues to be analyzed in line with the growth of infections and the shortage of vaccines, which in the Nation consider as a world problem, and not only in Argentina.
