President Alberto Fernández assured that he feels “accompanied by society and the leadership” within the framework of “the emergency situation” in which the coronavirus pandemic caused the country and appreciated the “effort” made to maintain the “level of compliance with the quarantine, which is very high”, but he asked not to “relax” because “the problem is far from over.”

In an interview with the Cordovan newspaper La Voz del Interior, the head of state warned that “when one says that it seems to be going well” the battle that the pandemic is being given to mitigate its spread does not mean that people “Relax and feel that the problem is over.”

“The problem is far from over,” the president made clear., who asked that “those who are empowered to do so go out into the streets” and that the rest, “mainly older adults”, stay indoors, taking into account that “85% of those affected are over 65 years of age “

“I feel very accompanied, I feel that society is clearly accompanying us. You have understood that we are living an emergency situation and a dramatic situation.

From that, we all need to join efforts, “said Fernández, evaluating” very high “degree of compliance with social, preventive and compulsory isolation ordered by a decree of necessity and urgency (DNU) of March 20.

He added that he also feels “very accompanied” by “the political leadership”, even knowing that the time will come when they will not agree “because that’s the way democracy is.”

He also highlighted the fact that “in the face of a crisis of this magnitude” everyone is “pulling in the same direction”, although he made it clear that this should not be seen as “an exceptionality”, but rather as something natural.
