The number of cases of covid-19 diagnosed in the country in the last days worries at the national level and many specialists foresee that it is the beginning of the regrowth. For now, these cases were again concentrated in some districts, but the call for attention is throughout the country.
The concern occurs because the general decline did not reach the floor of cases that was expected and the agglomeration of people for the parties, protests and vacations complicate the issue. That is why at the national level the “decision table” that brings together the president returned Alberto Fernndez, the Governor of Buenos Aires Axel Kicillof and the Head of Government Horacio Rodrguez Larreta.
In Mendoza the governor Rodolfo Suarez for now it does not analyze changes in the strategy or new restrictions. The number of diagnosed cases did not grow in the province and the health system has ample capacity at all levels. Yet they analyze the situation from day to day. And especially they will pay attention to the data that may occur next week, after the holidays.
According to the sources consulted by MDZ In the Executive, they still do not think of more restrictions and in 2020 they will end all the activities released. They will assess the situation after the holidays.
Until Christmas in Mendoza the curve had descended to less than 100 cases per day on average. There was even a day without deaths. Therapy bed occupancy is 45%. According to reports from Health, there were no new peaks in Mendoza and the reference data (such as positivity, the doubling time of cases and the R factor) are positive.
The new peak of cases has at AMBA again as the protagonist. 49.61% (5,837 people) of those infected today correspond to the City and Province of Buenos Aires. but there are other districts that have also had a rise in cases or have not managed to lower the curve. Neuqun exceeds 500 daily cases, just like Chubut and Santa Fe exceeds 1,300. The increase exceeds 50% in some districts of the AMBA.
The problem is that the index of mobility between person increases for holidays and there are no restrictions. That can increase the risk of infection again.
The ideal scenario of a drop in cases with the start of the vaccination campaign did not occur. That is why they believe that it will be difficult to avoid a second wave of infections. It was only in March that the massive immunization, but the effect of the vaccines is delayed: they require two doses and a window period for the antibodies to be created.
