A health worker collects a nasal swab sample from a passenger to be tested for COVID-19 before he is allowed to board a ferry to Buenos Aires, at Argentinian ferry service company Buquebus' terminal in the port of Montevideo, on July 10, 2020. Technicians of the Technological Laboratory of Uruguay (LATU) set up a floating laboratory on a ferryboat of Buquebus -the only liner linking the capitals- after the polemic entry to Uruguay of two Argentinian citizens infected with COVID-19 in June. The Uruguayan government of President Luis Lacalle Pou requires since Monday that travellers from abroad have a negative test for the new coronavirus done within 72 hours before the trip and another one seven days after, since flights from Europe were resumed. / AFP / Pablo PORCIUNCULA
