Little by little, we’re finally understanding that this is serious. We’re gradually coming to terms with this harsh reality. We, Argentinians, have always been quite reluctant to obey rules. We always show a much better behavior when we go abroad, ´cause we know we can´t easily escape punishment there. Now the President has told us to stay at home, but many people choose to view this quarantine as a break, a holiday, some days off. Wrong. This attitude is making  things worse, much worse.  It’s childish and irresponsible.  We must do as we are told, whether we like it or not. For everyone’s sake.  This is no joke. It’s a world pandemia for which there´s no cure yet. It´s time for us to grow up, guys. High time.
