The Chief of Staff, Santiago Cafiero, accused the opposition of “politicizing the pandemic”, even with the certainty that “today you cannot find a bed in the City of Buenos Aires”, Alluding to the decision of the head of the Buenos Aires Government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, not to respect the provisions of the Decree of Necessity and Urgency which established, among other measures, that classes return to virtuality in the AMBA schools until the end of the month to stop the curve of coronavirus infections.
“I was surprised because regardless of a discussion about statistics and numbers, There is a concrete reality which is that if you need to get a bed in the city of Buenos Aires for 15 days, you have a problem; that is testimonial, it is not statistics“, said the official, in an interview with Radio Diez and added that he was surprised by” the attitude of Rodríguez Larreta “of not respecting the DNU.
Cafiero argued that the “judicialization of health policy” is linked to the “most reactionary sectors of the opposition that see in the number of cases (of coronavirus) and in the number of deaths reasons to celebrate, thinking that in this way the government is harmed. ”
“They are very petty discussions and unfortunately the opposition took that path,” he said.
Cafiero assured that when the pandemic ends, the Government will be able to “render accounts” because it has always prioritized “caring for the lives of Argentines”, even “with successes and errors”, but the opposition “will not be able to do the same”.
“Today it is not only the number of infections but also the ability to respond to the health system that is taken into account to take measures“, said the Chief of Staff and reiterated the difficulty suffered by Buenos Aires when it comes to getting a bed to stay in if they have a serious coronavirus picture. “Many private clinics in the suburbs begin to serve many porteños with social work”, because “If you need an internment bed in CABA, you won’t get it today”added the official.
