Argentina extends lockdown amid rise in COVID-19 cases in capital

Argentina was one of the first countries in the region to impose a strict lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Argentina has extended its coronavirus restrictions for Buenos Aires and surrounding regions.

Rules that were due to end on Sunday will now stay in place until at least July 17.

That is putting more pressure on businesses that are barely scraping by.
