The governor of the Province of Buenos Aires, Axel Kicillof, indicated that « the number of infections and the truth is that this has us very worried « and assured that they should be taken again measurements « because at this point it is clear that it is neither the heat nor the cold but the individual behaviors. »
« We must re-tighten the muscle of care in all age groups, » said the Governor in dialogue with the TV channel C5N.
He also spoke about young boys, a group noted for failing to comply with prevention measures: « Young people are also the most committed sector of society. I walk the beaches and it catches my attention, here in the sector of the coast, it is fulfilled a lot but there are also obviously those who fail . You have to give support to those who comply «
Kicillof He also gave details about the vaccination campaign which has already started and continues in the Buenos Aires province.
He assured that « 63,275 vaccinated at this time in the Province of Buenos Aires and almost already 800 thousand pre-registered where they expressed interest. »

The vaccine is not a remedy, the vaccine prevents you from contracting the disease and infection. «

On the other hand, he assured that the intention in the Buenos Aires territory is to return to the presence, « we are preparing ourselves. »
