While the crosses between the Government and the opposition continue for future restrictions in the face of the

second wave

of the pandemic, the Ministry of Health confirmed

27,001 new cases

of coronavirus in Argentina on

Tuesday

It arises from the daily part published this afternoon, based on the data that the provinces uploaded to the national system in the last 24 hours.

With more than 2.5 million confirmed infections and about 58 thousand deaths, Argentina remains among the

15 countries most affected

in both variables since the beginning of the global health crisis.

Minister Carla Vizzotti -who launched the flu vaccination plan on Tuesday- denied that the health system is collapsed, but warned that what is being seen is "

an accelerated increase in cases that impacts on the spontaneous demand

for consultations as well as for care. and hospitalization in clinic and intensive care is also increasing ".

In this second wave, the trend is that

patients who develop serious symptoms and must be admitted to intensive care

are getting

younger and younger

.

According to

health sources

confirmed to

Clarín

, the average age of hospitalization for coronavirus fell between 8 and 10 years compared to the 2020 outbreak.

On the other hand, the Government decided that trains and groups should

lock their windows

.

They seek to guarantee cross ventilation to reduce the chances of contagion, because whoever travels will not be able to close them.

"It is illness or cold", highlighted the Minister of Transport, Mario Meoni.

The measure will begin to be applied "as soon as each of the companies can make the necessary adjustments."

Vaccination continues to be the main tool to mitigate the impact of covid-19.

But the arrival of new shipments has not yet been announced and the shortage is beginning to affect the national plan.

In fact, Córdoba had to suspend the application of the first dose in its Capital due to lack of stock, until receiving new shipments from the Nation.

The private sector initiated negotiations on its own, after the Chief of Cabinet, Santiago Cafiero, said that he was empowered - like the provinces and municipalities - to manage purchases.

The infectologist Daniel Stamboulian, medical director of Stamboulian Health Services, told

Clarín

that he had already been making inquiries with Pfizer and Moderna.

It aims to acquire about 700 thousand doses.

Meanwhile, Claudio Belocopitt, president of Swiss Medical and the Argentine Health Union (UAS), maintains that he also intends to buy vaccines, but clarified that the negotiations started until today did not have favorable results.


Until this Tuesday, according to official data, more than 7 million vaccines were distributed to the provinces, of which

5.5 million have

already been applied.

Most (4.8 million) were given to people who received a single dose, following the recommendation of the Ministry of Health to defer the second.
