A one-off tax on Argentina's richest people comes into effect to help pay for medical supplies

and relief for businesses struggling due to Covid-19.

Those with assets of more than 200 million pesos ($2.3m; £1.67m) will have to pay about 3%

on assets declared within the country and over 5% on assets held abroad.

It will apply to around 12,000 people.
