President Alberto Fernández warned on Tuesday that “you have to be a little scared of the smart quarantine” against the coronavirusBecause, he remarked, “the virus does not distinguish between good and bad, between Peronists and radicals.”
The Head of State made these statements during a videoconference that he had with the Governor of Chaco, Jorge Capitanich, After canceling his trip to that province on the recommendation of his medical teams.
“Experience tells me that you have to be a little afraid of the intelligent quarantine, because the intelligent quarantine is to leave some part of society as in freedom of action, as if the risk did not touch them,” said Fernández.
In this regard, he recalled that “for a long time” he was “very attacked” for that position. “They told me ‘why don’t you look at the smart quarantine in Chile, or the smart quarantine in Sweden’. And it turns out that the smart quarantine did not seem so smart, because what you need is to drastically stop circulation in situations like this,” he recalled. .
“It is not that in the center of the Chaco they are less intelligent, because the virus does not differentiate between intelligent and less intelligent, it attacks everyone equally. And when people circulate, the circulation of the virus grows, “he clarified.
And then he reiterated: “We have a very serious circulation problem and if people circulate, the virus circulates, and the virus does not distinguish between good and bad, between Peronists and radicals, between intelligent and non-intelligent, it attacks everyone equally” .
Regarding the cancellation of his trip to that province, the president acknowledged that it was because Chaco is one of the areas most affected by the coronavirus.
“For reasons that I do not understand very well, there are those who think that if I travel to Chaco I can catch it and if I stay in the place of greatest contagion I am not at risk. But hey, so as not to generate more conflicts, ”he said.
The President did not travel on the recommendation of his doctor Walter Federico Saavedra, but a team did that was led by the Secretary of Access to Health, Carla Vizzotti.
