The shape was the message in a high proportion. President Alberto Fernandez chose to speak through the official channel (to which he is stubborn), with prior registration, in a calm tone, without improvisation or film tapes. He was surprised by the lack of advertisements, which is a feature of any series except for Eid greetings. Measurement announcements are underway for next week: to start with, The Urgent Necessity Decree (DNU) that discourages travel abroad, limits the number of trips, and imposes obligations (quarantine, PCR) on those who return from abroad.
If you are told that the letter left a bit of flavor, the AF varies. Pleased “I took the lead.” He adds that he wanted to anticipate the horrific analyzes. “It conveyed an idea of what was happening,” among them the difficulties in getting vaccinations. In this crucial regard comes relief. Two flights to Russia, one of which landed, will guarantee about hundreds of thousands of Sputnik in a short time.
Between Tuesday and Thursday of next week, trust Olivos, three million doses of the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine will arrive on three flights. Dates and quantities are provisional: they can only be confirmed when the material is on board and during the flight.
Under current rules, Sinopharm only applies to people under the age of 60. ANMAT license permitting emergency use for people over 60 is based on China sending the relevant documents and this is reviewed by the local agency. Reports should provide an account of the results of investigations and clinical trials in Phase III. If you comply with international protocols, the process can be swift, and measured in a few days. But China does not send documents. Something similar happened with Russia and Sputnik V a few months ago. By then, the mainstream narrative despised Sputnik V; It was promoted as a Soviet scam when it wasn’t toxic. Pollen won the battle, and the ruling party won over the opposition’s denunciations. The story is controversial. Almost all “people” yearn for a vaccination soon, and are happy when it does.
In official offices, another possibility is analyzed in relation to Sinopharm, adapting the usual standards of ANMAT. Several rulers raised it. It would allow “emergency use” based on the fact that the vaccine is being applied to people over the age of 60 in other countries, starting with China. Several governors suggest this path, which ANMAT must approve of. In Chile, specialists explain that another Chinese vaccine – Sinovac – is widely used, which does not contain phase III studies.
So far, with official data from March 19 (those available at the conclusion of this note), 2,472,426 first doses and 591,438 second doses have been applied across the country, equivalent to 80 percent of those distributed.. 5.4 percent of the population received at least one dose. With a simple rule of three, the total could double well before the end of April if there is sufficient saving.
The second wave is growing on the planet and seriously affecting neighboring countries. Brazil in the lead: because of the population, the collapse of the health system, and the insane administration of President Jair Bolsonaro, exacerbated by the anxiety caused by Lula Lever. Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay are experiencing different adversities.
If asked about the closing of the border, Fernandez answered in a more manner Chinchudo what he explained through the official series: The land border has been closed since December 24. Yes, the DNU is being formulated to prevent Argentina from traveling abroad. It will be subscribed to in the next few days. Disappointed is a key word because preventing leaving the country would be problematic in terms of constitutional rights.
Deterrent measures limit the number of trips, and impose strict quarantines on all returnees, forcing them to do PCR at their own expense. The demands also seek to create an awareness of unjustified behavior of graduates and families who travel and pose enormous risks.
PASO under fire: An increasing number of conservatives, from various political factions, are calling for the suspension of the compulsory and simultaneous national primaries (PASO) this year. You will fall in August, midwinter, first argument. They are very expensive, and second.
AF was always more sensitive to one point than the other. Age sign, both now recognized.
The president asserts that the primaries in August, and the doubling of the election schedule, pose enormous risk. “We are playing with fire”. There is a major reason for them to be suspended.
The cost of the vote is added as an appendix, mediating a pandemic outbreak and the need for money to purchase vaccines.
The suspension must be approved by law, necessitating competition between representatives from Together for Change (JpC). Within everyone’s front (FdT) there will be no problem, the AF predicts with optimism of will. But divisions in the opposition space, as he calibrates it, impede the possibility of reaching agreements. This story, like others, has an open ending.
I do not want to rush, I do not want to rush: Economy Minister Martin Guzmán traveled to the United States, and the priority is to meet with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) authorities. Other secret meetings add to the joy of the tour. Meeting senior American officials is difficult. Members of the incoming administration need Senate approval, except for those in the White House. Obtaining it is complicated because the Senate is restricted. President Joe Biden has to get the entire bench to vote, for the Vice President to leave … the renewal is going slowly. But let’s go back to the gist.
The Minister and the President agree. We collect it in plain language. First, there is a time for reform. Second, these conversations are not set (only) in Washington or New York but “in the world.”
The Argentine will not be encrypted on a date but as a result. Alberto Fernandez insists, “I do not want to be rushed.” I could describe it another way: “I don’t want to be rushed.”
The agreement should take into account the needs of the Argentine people, not stop the initial growth of the economy.
For now, President Alberto describes, the northern powers are solving problems through broadcasting and boosting economic activity. International credit organizations give very broad discounts or exemptions to the poorest countries.
Middle-income countries, Argentina’s Bongali, are left without answers. Fernandez is convinced that this paradigm is changing in the world … or that it can change. He insists on getting the support of the rulers of European countries: he has his counterparts in Portugal and Spain on the agenda.
With an international move (in which Russia and China play in his favor although it is not said out loud, hush), Argentina will be in a position to achieve new terms agreement with the IMF, wider than those stipulated to date. “The world thinks about it, it will not be a response dedicated to Argentina, we are not the only debtors,” confirms Olivos’ chief resident.
Supporting numbers: In a picture marked by concerns, the economic team and Casa Rosada read with satisfaction the projections for GDP growth, economic revitalization and tax collection. The shadow of suspicion, of course, is the pandemic that could cast a shadow over the horizon.
“Through a statistical abstract drawing of growth at the end of 2020, the economy can grow 6, 7, 8 points,” an estimate near Guzmán said. The plague is the biggest threat. Industry, construction and public works are the main drivers.
On March 30th, the deadline for filing declaration of Solidarity Contribution (nickname tax on large fortunes) expires. The entrepreneurial ferocity has faded without ever completely disappearing. “There are many business opportunities, they shouldn’t fight,” they reckon from the other side of the scale.
Sources from the business sector itself expect that only 10 percent of those involved will sue for the measure. Against the myth woven by the opposition party (eventually by some members of the ruling party), the government followed a non-linear path to improve combination. He defended the tribute, did not succumb to pressure, but rather made it a law. Then he issued a payment plan to deter reluctant taxpayers. The balance will be measured against the results. Meanwhile, the chemistry of the stick and the little carrot gives the impression of a combination of convictions and real financial policy.
Money laundering for construction project owners will generate a million billionaires, as well as potential beneficiaries. In the government they think similar. Utility, always morally doubtful, should soon be regulated, with a few days given for registration: taxpayers (loyal to their privacy) should be forbidden from obscuring until the last minute. Once again, Keynesian views on public works and the housing function are a catalyst.
Endemic interior: The search for the girl “M” and her long-awaited recovery revived a trainee inside the ruling party: who is facing the Minister of National Security, Sabina FrederickAnd a colleague from Buenos Aires, Sergio Bernie. He starred in an over-the-top acting archetype, not the first ever. They quarreled with Than Frederick, Secretary Eduardo Villalba, and with other officials. Then he was charged with divulging the incident, and claiming fame and supremacy. Major media outlets were on a walk with the scene.
Frederick took some time to respond “formally”, perhaps with presidential approval. He criticized Bernie’s style and uniqueness, highlighting the joint work between the authorities in the different disciplines and citizens in general.
Alberto Fernandez had never contacted Bernie, nor did he want to be appointed to the nation when the Mandate began. In Privacy Olivos (and in the vicinity) he argues that he’s reissuing the profile of a minister who fails over and over again. He compares him to the Carapintada Aldo Rico or now prosecutor Carlos Stornelli in his unfortunate efforts in Buenos Aires.
A friend’s fire puts Fernandez and the governor of Buenos Aires at a crossroads, Axel Kisilov. Whoever separated from his minister “pays” a political price. It will be necessary to think about the cost being paid in installments while Bernie continues to dream of building himself as a voting candidate in some close proximity.
Talk about what matters: With ads or without my friend, the President was on the right track when talking about priority issues for the general public. This historian argues that the government’s enjoyment of judicial cases takes it away from citizens’ concerns. These are simple, urgent, and unsatisfied matters: health, vaccinations, work, children returning to the classroom, expectations of the year, and a few other things.
If citizens vote (with or without STEP) as they usually do: they will be pronounced based on those basic variables for their needs and rights. The government always negotiates and wrestles with reality, with its strength, weakness, or both.
These stories will continue. If a steady influx of vaccines occurs and the population is convinced to stick with and take care of themselves, that would be best for everyone, save a handful of stubborn opposition leaders.
