this. i remember bajo claiming exactly that. everyone else in the world has realized you can't quarantine your way out of this virus. and yet after coming up on 5 months of this quarantine, argentina is one of the last trying to proclaim they still have control. they are no better off than any other country, just delaying the inevitable, except now with an economic debacle.The only justification of a lockdown was to give the state some time to ramp up the capabilities needed to fight this - capabilities that bajo, of all people, had argued that Argentina had in superior measure to the US. As a way of freezing time until it goes away? Yeah, that might not turn out too great.
