The province’s health system is on alert for a rise in cases of covid, Especially in Greater Buenos Aires, and called on people who have not received additional and booster doses of vaccines to come to vaccination centers.

The scenario is far from dramatic, but from one week to the next, infections doubled across the country. Especially in 22 out of 24 jurisdictions, where 85% of virus circulation is in AMBA.

As the virus has begun to increase nationally, vaccinators at Newquan are slowly starting to give patients a fourth or fifth dose, which are booster doses, to an average of 1,000 people per day. On an average, 6 to 7 thousand people have been vaccinated weekly since the last week of November.

According to reports from the province’s health ministry, cases in Neuquen have stabilized and are not serious. In week 49, which corresponds to the last official report, 62 new cases were reported, a 130% increase from the previous week where 27 infections were registered.

In terms of active cases, the province as a whole has 58, an increase of 176% against 21 last week. Regardless of the numbers, the number of infections is a far cry from the waves of COVID where more than 2,000 cases were reported per day and twenty deaths.

For Miranda, despite the increase nationally, additional and booster vaccinations are critical to maintaining this infectious plateau. In Neuquen, a substrain of the Omicron strain is circulating, but no people have been admitted to intensive care and no deaths have been recorded for a long time.

In Neuquen, 17,730 boys and girls between the ages of 13 months and 4 years were vaccinated.
