After it was announced that large-scale production of the Sputnik V vaccine will begin in the country in June, the Government confirmed

29,145 new cases

of coronavirus in Argentina on

Tuesday 

.

It arises from the daily part published this afternoon by the Ministry of Health, based on data uploaded by the provinces in the last 24 hours.

The new report is known in the midst of a rise in infections.

In the previous 7 days, the daily average settled at

23,210 positives

, well above the figures recorded during the first wave of the pandemic.

In fact, on no day in 2020 had the 18,500 infected been exceeded.

After having exceeded 2.7 million infections and with almost 60 thousand deaths, Argentina remains among the

15 countries most affected

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

This Tuesday, the Secretary of Health Quality, Arnaldo Medina, assured that

"it is probable"

that the new restrictions due to the second wave of coronavirus

"will have to be extended"

beyond April 30, when the DNU signed by Alberto Fernández expires. .

In the Province, in fact, it was resolved that another three municipalities go to phase 2, so they will suspend face-to-face classes from next Monday.

These are

Zárate, Castelli and General Villegas

, where cases have been increasing in recent days.

In addition, commercial premises may only open from 6 to 19 and general circulation will be prohibited after 20, as is the case in the AMBA.

In the City, meanwhile, Health Minister Fernán Quirós warned about the high level of occupation in some intensive therapies and insisted on the need to make "an effort of two or three weeks" to reduce infections.

"The average (occupancy) in the private sector is 82%, but of course

there are therapies that are above 95%

, and the average number of beds in the public sector is 65%. But of course, to achieve the capacity full, we have to continue redistributing, "he said.

Meanwhile, the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) announced that Argentina will begin large-scale production of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine from June.

The Richmond laboratory, which will be in charge of local manufacturing, reported that it is in the final stage of preparing the first batches of the formula in Argentina.

It did so through a statement to the National Securities Commission, in which it indicated that the 21 thousand doses will be sent to the Gamaleya Institute for evaluation, while parallel tests are being carried out in Argentine laboratories.

On Monday night, a new batch of this vaccine arrived in the country, with 800 thousand doses of the first component, with which the immunization scheme begins.

Confirmation from China is now awaited for a new Aerolineas Argentinas flight to depart on Saturday to remove the third batch from the Sinopharm. 

So far, Argentina received almost 9 million vaccines.

According to the latest official data,

6,433,141
