A total of 1,344,300 patients have recovered, while 124,699 cases remain active, it added.

Buenos Aires Province has registered a total of 641,787 cases and remains the most infected region in the country.

Argentine authorities on Tuesday urged the public to keep up preventive measures against the novel coronavirus, especially during Christmas and New Year holidays.

”While we have auspiciously seen a very important decrease (in cases) throughout the country in recent weeks, we have noticed that for a few days this decline has tended to stabilize,“ Health Minister Gines Gonzalez Garcia warned at a press conference.

”As the holidays (Christmas and New Year) near and vacations are coming ... it is necessary to be more careful, and that is what we are trying to stress, being more careful,” said Gines Gonzalez.

    Still upset I see. Good.

    Must have been the remark:

    “What’s for dinner tonight, in your hovel????

    Microwaveable lasagne for one and a can of Coke, watching Blither TV????

    Whilst some people wine and dine on the finest with intelligent company and magnificent views, mirrador.

    Doesn’t seem quite fair, except being as it’s you, it is.”

    BTW, everyone here (except you obviously) already knew the meaning of “Compadre”. Also “Godfather” would be “Padrino”.

    No one here you are going to wish a happy Christmas to then? Of course not, people just tell you to F*ck Off don’t they, Billy no Mates.

    “Ad Hominem is not fallacious if the attack goes to the credibility of the argument”.

    As, “the argument may depend on its presenter's claim that he's an expert”.

    Your picture of someone else’s Tankard. Still no proof, no truth.

    Still waiting to hear what you do with the clear plastic bags of used bumf when full????
