The impact of COVID-19.
The first COVID-19 coronavirus case in Argentina was reported on March 3, a 43-year-old man who had returned from Italy. Thirteen days later, the number of cases climbed to 68, including two deaths. Though there are no domestic (non-traceable) cases yet, the government has hurried to implement social distancing measures, attempting to contain the spread and prevent a crisis such as that of Italy.
