Rosario, Santa Fe. There, a tent of Circus Rhodes, which is installed near the Monument to the Flag, will become, in the coming days, on the initiative of a group of artists of the company, a test center of Covid-19.The Provincial Ministry of Health accepted the offer of the holders of the circus to make use of the tent, which has been disabled for a few days , after the province restricted, in the context of other measures, the performance of public spectacles. Although the strategy to be implemented on site is not yet defined, from Santa Fe’s Health portfolio they reported that the decision to use that space to make checks on potential infected people is already made. The site could become one of the largest testing centers in the country. Ministry staff are already working on site doing some tests and between Thursday and Friday the strategy could be defined to get it up and running in full next week. The site will join the territorial testing centers with what counts the city of Rosario, which currently has three and would add, in addition to the space offered by the Rhodes, a few others.” We know the moment we are living with the pandemic and I listen all the time in the media that testing was needed. So this is our selfless contribution,” La Capital told the firm’s owner, Marcelo Lanza, also clarified that as a company they will not receive any return or compensation about it, but this is “a donation” to help the province. The circus arrived in the city in March, and performed its last role on April 23. Although he hoped to remain offering functions for a couple of months, the new measures announced by the province call into question his stay.” We are powerless because in Rosario the only thing that is closed is the circus, the theaters, the cinemas and little else. The rest, with time constraints, works normally. We could work and we’re not getting it. Of course we are a very thin thread and we have no voice to be heard,” the circus headline lamented. Finally, the employer confirmed that the carp will stay as long as the health situation requires. “The tent and we’re going to be here firm,” he said.
