The Government confirmed this Sunday

622 new cases

and another

61 deaths

from coronavirus in Argentina, according to data from the last 24 hours.

The number of infections is the


for a day since June 1 of last year, when they had reported 563.

In this way, the country reaches

5,239,232 infections

detected and

114,428 deaths

since the start of the pandemic.

The data were published this afternoon by the Ministry of Health in the health part that the portfolio produces daily based on the information provided by the provinces.

After 15 weeks with declining infections, the country is going through

the lowest point of the contagion curve

since mid-2020. According to data from the last 7 days -from September 13 to 19-, the average

fell to 2,099 infected per day

This represents

a monthly drop of 70%

: on August 19 the average was 7,227 new infections per day.

As a reference, it is worth bearing in mind that at the peak of the pandemic, registered in May, the average reached a ceiling of 33,171.

There are currently 

28,521 patients

with covid-19 in all provinces, of which 

1,496 are in intensive care


The occupation of critical beds for all pathologies fell to 39.4% nationwide (42.2% in the AMBA).

Despite this slowdown, Argentina ranks


among the countries with the highest number of positive cases detected throughout the pandemic.

Meanwhile, it ranks


among those with the most fatalities registered, according to the Worldometers site.

As for the daily average of deaths, it is


-with the data of the last week- and remains well below the record of 603 registered on June 11.

No test data

For the 11th consecutive day, this Sunday

the number of tests carried out in the country was not published

, which makes it impossible to calculate the positivity rate;

that is, the number of patients swabbed who have the virus.

It is a key indicator to measure the operation of the infection tracking strategy.

The health portfolio attributes this situation to "a system error between the SNVS (National Health Surveillance System) base and the impact on the dashboard that does not allow the day's tests to be viewed".

The detail of the positive cases reported today is as follows:

  • Buenos Aires 170

  • CABA 100

  • Catamarca 18

  • Chaco 8

  • Chubut 5
