Lockdown could last another 6 to 10 weeks

Am still shocked that more in the way of contact tracing is not being done. Over 2 months on we should be in a manageable situation by now like so many other countries who locked down quickly and closed their borders but didn’t just buy ventilators, they focused on testing and tracing to avoid needing to use their ventilators. Also focused providing their medical
personnel with PPE and safe conditions and protecting their most vulnerable.

The government keeps patting itself on the back and spreading propaganda that it has saved lives for imposing the worlds harshest and longest lockdown, meanwhile the death toll continues to creep up and up (and will soon climb into the thousands with the recent jump in cases.)

We will end up the same or worse death toll than Sweden or one of the other countries this government used as an example of what not to be.

My fear is that we will come out of this lockdown with nothing to show for our sacrifices due to a failure to manage over the past two months combined with the ego and arrogance of this government who refused to discuss or look at other ways of managing, especially in the villas.

LOL sorry to say but this Government isn't capable of wiping it's own ass let alone implementing a reliable well coordinated response that involves good quality testing and tracking. Tell me which international medical company would sell any tests to the Argentine government when there is a very high probability they don't get paid lol... This is the problem when you continuously default on your debts and talk down on developed nations. Even the Chinese are hesitant to do business with this Government lol..

Lockdown can't continue too long otherwise the Government will face severe looting and hunger in the villas and elsewhere in the country. They need the votes for reelection then must remove the lockdown and count the dead..! Only the living vote

It's obvious the government jumped the gun by implementing the lock down when they did, and literally giving people a few hours to prepare for it, when the numbers weren't very high yet (and withouth much testing). Now that the cases are spiking, they've lost the option of a full lockdown for containment because people are not complying any more.

No shit - people were locked inside without work for months and most places had 0 fucking cases. What to do they expect - I support people saying fuck you to the Government for the amateur way they handled this. Locking citizens outside the country and in other states etc. If they had any brains they would have deployed way more testing in clusters and tracked the cases properly. With that being said I don't put any weight on the numbers that are being produced - anyone who believes ANY statistic from this Government is severely deluded. The numbers will be manipulated to control the narrative they want.
