In this climate, a long-distance bus bound for Comodoro Rivadavia was forced to stop at Olavarría by the passengers themselves, when they noticed that a woman was traveling with them. I had returned from a trip from Spain, one of the countries most affected by the coronavirus.

The passengers were alarmed to learn where the woman was coming from and there were some crosses over if you had had your studies corresponding upon reaching Ezeiza or not. The exchange escalated to such an extent that the drivers decided to stop the trip and intervene with the police and local health authorities.
