Twenty days after the beginning of compulsory social isolation, the main monuments, avenues Y plazas from the center of the Buenos aires city they find each other half empty. But despite the porteños’ high compliance with the restrictions imposed by the Government, President Alberto Fernández expressed his concern at a “greater relaxation” in the streets of urban centers. For this reason, he announced that the quarantine “is not going to be relaxed” and urged residents to stay at home.

In the Federal capital, the drone of TN made a tour of the neighborhoods of Palermo, Retiro and Monserrat, and transmitted aerial images that show a poor circulation of people and vehicles.

Despite the postcards obtained in the City of Buenos Aires, which it is far from being that bustling and constantly moving place to which we are accustomed, the situation seems to be different in other parts of the country.

In that sense, this Wednesday Alberto Fernández complained about a greater “relaxation” in the streets of urban centers. Therefore, he assured that will be “stricter” in compliance with the measure in areas such as Buenos Aires metropolitan area.

In Retirement, the main streets and avenues were seen semi-deserted. An example of this are the images recorded around the Torre de los Ingleses, where just a few cars and buses appear.

Meanwhile, a similar situation was registered in the Avenue July 9 at the height of the Obelisk. In that area, usually crowded with people and means of transport, the drone of TN showed desolate sidewalks and little traffic.

On the long weekend of Easter, the Government will strengthen control operations in force at accesses to the Federal Capital and within neighborhoods.

The checkpoints will also be concentrated on the routes and highways that go to the Atlantic Coast and the countries. Thus, they hope to ensure that is fulfilled with the quarantine and that the good Friday holiday is not used to travel.
