Surveillance cameras installed at a building in Olivos, Buenos Aires province, captured the moment a man allegedly attempted to break coronavirus quarantine after returning from a US trip, and attacked a security guard who attempted to prevent him.
Footage shows the aggressor assaulting the security guard who had apparently reprimanded him for not respecting the protocol imposed by health... Еще authorities due to the coronavirus outbreak. The violent incident occurred on Saturday night.
Police and health authorities were deployed to the scene, and according to local media, both of those involved in the altercation were isolated. The security guard was transferred to a nearby hospital, while the attacker has been placed under «house arrest.»
The attacker faces trial for injuries and threats, as well as violation of article 205 (which protects public health) and article 239 (disobedience) of the Penal Code, both linked to the spread of the pandemic.
Argentinian President Alberto Fernandez referred to the attack, criticising the aggressor's attitude in statements to local media.
According to data provided on Sunday by the Ministry of Health, Argentina has registered 56 cases of infection and two deaths due to coronavirus.
