08/06/2020 (Argentina) - Health workers and unions are expected to gather on Thursday, August 6, at hospitals across the country, including in Buenos Aires, to demand additional resources form the government in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. According to media sources, participants in Buenos Aires will gather in front of the Garrahan Hospital. Similar demonstrations are expected in Córdoba, Jujuy, and Salta on Thursday, and additional demonstrations elsewhere cannot be ruled out.
The demonstrations may be well-attended and will likely remain peaceful. Localized disruption in the vicinity of protest sites is likely. Disruption to medical services, including emergency services and intensive care units, should be anticipated in the near term.
Those in Argentina are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate potential disruptions to the provision of medical services, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and confirm medical appointments.
