Surprisingly few tests being done.
Am hearing an increasing amount of cases of people working in food shops getting infected (bakeries, supermarkets, fruit stores etc) along with security and medical personnel. In the blocks surrounding my place I have heard of at least 4 different businesses with affected employees.
Perhaps they need to test all "essential workers" that interact with the public on a frequent basis more regularly.

I agree. Your observations are relevant in view of the escalation of cases of new infections reported daily in CABA.
Food for thought: in CABA....why have we not heard of Plan DetectAR operatives, since it was put in place, on essential workers at public hospital facilities, supermarket chains, fruit/veggie stores, bakeries, etc?
In Caballito, we learned last week by word of mouth that a well--known fish market, Pescaderia Mellino, closed due to an employee having tested positive.

First two thoughts:
  • Hard to spend taxes you can't tax (or money spent on other things already?)
  • Hard to produce and distribute enough "locally made" tests fast enough to be effective?
= only thing left to do is put on a show for the cameras.

if there is anything that explains economic stupidity perfectly, it's this.
The measure is based not on a theoretical equation, but on a question of visibility." Sounds like los famosos "runners". Its all a show lead by sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, political theologists and their ilk employed by government ministries sitting at home in Puerto Madero or Recoletta earning 100% of their salaries... and when the results cause a bigger shitstorm than intended, it's not economic (ugh, numbers!) law, it's a conspiracy!

In all seriousness I can see the anti-competitive argument here from smaller retailers. Non-essential items are still available online and can still be delivered. Big chains should also have to sell non-essential items online like smaller or specialised providers just to keep things fairer and spread the consumption around a bit during this period.

....Until proven otherwise, the only truth is reality. And the irrefutable reality in the coronavirus pandemic is the dead. Infected, it is not known for sure how many there are. Under reporting is constant. That is why it is relevant that, with the current number of deaths and registered cases that always underestimates the "truth" , Argentina is at its best : the death rate is now 1.94 percent. This means that of every 100 people who contract the virus, less than two die. Or to put it better: for every 10,000 infected, there are 194 dead.

It is a record floor for the country. Never before, since the quarantine began on March 20, has such a low average case fatality rate been reached. In fact, at that time the death toll was 2.22 percent and began to rise to 5.36 percent on May 4. Then the descending stage began, which for now continues to surpass the 1,500 death mark....

Coronavirus: only 5 neighborhoods concentrate half of the City's cases
The city of Buenos Aires is one of the centers of greatest concern for the growth of coronavirus infections, which has already surpassed the 20,000 barrier and represents 43% of cases in Argentina . However, the outbreak manifests itself unevenly within the City: only five of the 48 Buenos Aires neighborhoods centralize 50% of the total infected in the district.

These are the neighborhoods of Flores (3675), Retiro (2927), Barracas (1833), Villa Lugano (1627) and Balvanera (1323). The data arises from an analysis of LA NACION Data on the information published in the Weekly Epidemiological Bulletin (BES) of the Buenos Aires Ministry of Health and takes into account the cases since March 3, when the first positive was confirmed in CABA, until on June 25, when the total number of infected totaled 22,932.

On the other hand, there are still some neighborhoods that do not exceed 40 cases, such as Agronomy (31), Villa Ortúzar (33), Villa Real (34) and Versailles (36). The latter even remained free of positive cases for almost two months and reported their first case only during the last week of May....
If the rate is analyzed for every 100,000 inhabitants , the most compromised are Retiro , Flores and Villa Soldati. In recent weeks, the Buenos Aires government intensified door-to-door case tracking and follow-up of close contacts through the Detect plan in these three neighborhoods....


See chart showing number of positive cases in each of the 48 neighborhoods.....
UPDATE: Almost 30 days later....
26 July 2020....The data is from the latest edition of the Weekly Epidemiological Bulletin, published this Friday by the City Ministry of Health. It indicates that Villa Real, Colegiales, Parque Chas and Villa Devoto increased their cases by between 34 and 37%, although the absolute cases are still relatively low. Of the four, the most confirmed accumulate are Devot0 (557) and Colegiales (446)....
....Although at a slower rate of increase, Palermo and Caballito continue to be two neighborhoods to which we must pay attention, since a considerable number of positives, 2,137 and 1,524 respectively, are added to their ever-rising curve. All in all, due to its high population, in Palermo the rate per 100,000 inhabitants is much lower than that of a large part of the City....
