After a man infected 12 people with the

Delta variant

of the coronavirus, after arriving in Córdoba from Lima, Peru,

more than 160 people have

already

been isolated

to prevent the virus strain from spreading throughout the province.

That was the reported figure for

ElDoce

, the local media in which

Laura López

, head of epidemiology at the provincial Ministry of Health, said the man "arrived on July 19 to Argentina" and that "according to

his account,

to the The next day he went to the house of a relative

who lives in another neighborhood and kept in contact with several people. "

Among the infected there are four boys.

For this reason,

five bubbles

were isolated

in four educational establishments

in the area (three provincial and one municipal).


Likewise, López assured that "none of those infected required any type of assistance in hospitals," since "most of them are

asymptomatic

and some have mild symptoms."

The traveler, who lives in the capital Córdoba, had arrived at Jorge Newbery Airport

on July 19

, with a negative PCR prior to the flight and another negative test upon entering the country.

He arrived by car to his hometown, although he did not fulfill the obligation imposed on all travelers.

Córdoba confirmed 14 cases of the Delta variant related to a person who presented CRP and a negative test upon entering the country on July 19.

On July 21, the passenger was monitored and monitored by telephone, and the

corresponding testing

was scheduled

for the seventh day

, that is, July 26.

It was at that moment that the positive was detected.

“On July 26, the discharge test was performed and the result was positive, so the Delta variant identification was carried out by rt-PCR at the Central Laboratory of the Province of Córdoba, on July 27 at night ”, reported from the Cordoba health ministry to the newspaper La Voz del Interior.

Sources linked to the case confirmed to

Clarín

that "the Public Health Emergencies Unit has been acting ex officio" since Wednesday, when they learned of the case.

"This Thursday the Ministry of Health formalized the criminal complaint against the traveler," they said.

The suspicion that he did not adequately respect the isolation after returning from the trip was confirmed by López, who said that the man visited a non-living relative while he assumed he should be isolated. 


On alert

The case alarms the health authorities at the possibility of the rapid

advance of the Delta variant

in the country and the much feared "community circulation."

This is precisely why the close contacts were quickly isolated.

Precisely, this Wednesday, the national director of Epidemiology of the Ministry of Health of the Nation,

Analía Rearte

, warned that there are still no cases of the Delta variant of the coronavirus without a travel history, but, she said, "we are going to have them."

Rearte also updated the number of infected, and said that there are "45 Delta infections from travelers; and about 15 close contacts who were cohabiting and some non-cohabiting."

The Córdoba cases were not yet known

.
