Argentina’s pandemic squatters

Al Jazeera speaks to Argentinians left out in the cold by the coronavirus pandemic.

Argentina’s lockdown was due to end on Sunday, but it is being extended because of a surge in coronavirus cases.

The country’s economic situation, already in dire straits, has further deteriorated in recent months, and millions are finding it hard to make ends meet.

As a result, many have had to leave homes they can no longer afford and squat on land they believe is publicly owned.
