Fernández revealed that in that meeting a way was sought to “expand the number of intensive care beds in the province of Buenos Aires because many porteños who get sick (from coronavirus) end up there.”

Speaking to Radio 10, he expressed: “There is a saturation of beds in the City and the City does not take this data into account. For this reason, we are looking with Axel for a way to expand the number of beds ”. “The best thing is to try not to leave your houses. You have to circulate as little as possible. Avoid social gatherings. You have to understand that it is an inclement virus, “he continued.

“We must not lower our arms or be distracted. Please, the only thing that worries me is taking care of ourselves and nothing else. I know the unpleasantness of the measures, but it is to take care of a virus that we do not know where it comes from. Let us not be careless because the problem is very present ”, the President completed.
