Argentines stranded within the country
Almost 12 thousand Argentines remained stranded in different parts of the country, after the measure of social, preventive and compulsory isolation dictated by the National Government to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, according to data from the National Ombudsman’s Office.
In addition, it was reported that most of the people are stranded in the province of Buenos Aires, in the Federal Capital, in Córdoba and Río Negro, although citizens were reported waiting to be able to return to their homes in all the provinces of the country.
The cases of contagions by community circulation increase.
From last April 25 to May 4, the Ombudsman made a survey of the stranded who need to return to their provinces and it turned out that 11,965 people were registered.
In a statement, the agency indicated that although from Saturday, April 18 to Tuesday, 21, the Government put into effect a movement permit for people who were doing isolation far from their usual residences, “this measure was exclusive because It was only for people who owned their own vehicle and by land, the permits were insufficient and the website through which they were processed was not working properly. ”
According to the Ombudsman’s survey, only 25% of the stranded have their own vehicle, while 75% need access to a means of transport to return home.
From the survey it was also established that the reasons why people were outside their homes are multiple, and among those that are most repeated are “family”, “work” and “medical necessity”.
After carrying out the registration, the Office of the Ombudsman stated that “it makes available to the pertinent authorities the list of the persons involved with the registered and contact data collected.”
