Argentina

Argentina’s first case of COVID-19 was discovered on 3 March 2020. The number of cases had grown to 158 by 20 March when the government imposed rigorous isolation measures, essentially a national lockdown. Additionally, the government has introduced a range of economic measures to ensure access to basic necessities and income during the lockdown. Argentina has a federal system, with provinces that have significant autonomy. COVID-19 Policy Watch currently covers national policies only.
