The Minister of Social Development, Daniel Arroyo placeholder image, referred to the restrictions announced by the National Government in the face of the advance of the coronavirus and assured that today “is not the time to mobilize, nor to march”, but rather “you have to stay at home.”

“It is not the time to mobilize, it is not the time to march and it is not the time for crowds. You have to stay at home in these nine days,” said Arroyo this morning in FM La Patriada dialogue.

In this sense, he stressed that “the situation is very difficult, it is clearly evident that there is a large community circulation of the virus, so it is necessary to stay at home”.

In addition, the official considered that “there is a lot of awareness in the neighborhoods and there is a lot of concern, because the economic situation is very complicated, because many people are clearly not enough money, and because what was beginning to rise with their job”.

At the same time, he pointed out that there is a lot of concern “because in all families it is very clear that there are critical situations, and many cases of contagion, especially among the youngest who had no previous pathology.”

He also warned that “the situation is very complex” from a health point of view. “I go through the hospitals when I go through the neighborhoods and there are more and more young people who are hospitalized,” he added.

In this sense, he specified that “a measure that was launched yesterday is the expansion of the Alimentar Card, which went from being for mothers with children up to six years of age to covering up to 14 years, and reaches almost 4 million children ”.

And he announced that “if they are necessary, we will take additional measures. The minimum wage has already been raised and the Alimentar Card has been expanded, among other measures with significant impact. And we reinforced the Repro, we expanded the Progresar scholarships for the education and training of young people. , in addition to expanding the Work Enhancement Program “.

Arroyo explained that the Social Development portfolio has “exceeded the original budget for this year due to all the measures we have been taking, there has been a clear expansion, but we are going to take the necessary social measures.”
