If in Uruguay and Argentina they are referred to as “twins”, elsewhere in Latin America they say “choleras”, “dumbles”, “mancornillas” and “untas” in Puerto Rico and Venezuela or “yogos” in Cuba. Your goal is to attach the four shirt cuffs to the end of each double bracelet.

Regardless of size, economy or development, the pandemic has exposed the inequalities and differences in each country. “As well as the democratic quality and advocacy of freedom for various governments and societies,” he said.
The call was there too “responsible freedom” To which the Uruguayan president turned to deal with the epidemic in his country, which was his criterion when choosing a voluntary quarantine. Our country, Uruguay, has a tremendous democratic vocation, and a very important appreciation for individual freedom. Freedom is the purest state of the individual. What has been demonstrated in this pandemic, if necessary, is that unequal access to tools means that freedom can be enjoyed in different ways. And that dichotomy, a false dichotomy between state existence and individual freedom, has fallen to the ground. Moreover, in countries where the state plays a protective role well, the most vulnerable individuals can access the tools necessary to exercise their freedom,” he declared.
