The authorities gave a conference this Tuesday at midday, remembering that the pandemic did not conclude and asked people to complete vaccination schedules by going directly, without calling, to health centers. “Today we do not have any restrictive measures in place”, said the Minister of Health of La Pampa, Mario Kohan.
The cases in La Pampa, for now, do not occur, as in Buenos Aires and the capital of the country. However, the phenomenon could be transferred in a short time. The authorities of the Ministry of Health of La Pampa gave this Tuesday an information about the mediocrity and the actual status of the Covid-19 pandemic in the province. The wheel of the press was made in the auditorium of this ministry. They had to complete the vaccination schemes because, repeated one more time, the pandemic still did not stop.
The Minister of Health, Mario Rubén Kohan, and the Director of Epidemiology, Ana Bertone, gave precisions about the number of cases in the province and the vaccination campaign with a dose of reinforcement in force.
“Today we do not have any restrictive measures in place,” Minister Mario Kohan said. But he asked to complete the vaccination and reinforcement schedules. “At no time were we told that the pandemic had ended, the OMS did not say that it had ended”, he clarified.
The official recorded that he had predicted that in the summer there would be an increase in cases. “Todo lo que occré en el hemisphere norte luego pasa acá. It was expected that ocurriera. Sabíamos que esto iba a pasar”, pointed out.
“It is not a virus. At some point in the evolution it will transform into a virus. But it is not there”, he remarked.
“This virus numerically has nothing to do with those who live in the last stage and occurs in a different context, the vaccination changed the story, there is an ante and an after. The virus never retreated and probably never will. But coexist circulating with other viruses that also anticipate their presence, such as influenza and other respiratory viruses”Proceed.
“This gives rise to an absolute recommendation: all those people who do not complete the scheme, please run. If you have passed 120 days of reinforcement, apply the third reinforcement. This avoids severe forms and deaths”, he remarked.
The number of cases has quadrupled in CABA and in AMBA. “In La Pampa the same thing does not pass. There is a fall. But every week that comes this can change”, he indicated. “Let’s take progressive, sensible, reasonable and grounded measures”, he pointed out.
“Nos tenemos que vacunaar”, he insisted. “The scientific evidence is overwhelming, no debate is possible”, he said.
The officials recommended not to attend meetings if respiratory symptoms are present. And take care in visits to elderly people or those with severe chronic diseases. They can also use barbies if the visit is ineludable.
“We have no plans for today, no restrictive measures. We insist a lot on completing the vaccination schedules”, he said.
The last date of La Pampa is 22 monthly cases. “No estamos testeando a todo el mundo ni lo vamos a hacer”, he recorded.
“The indication of the test corresponds to the doctor, he decides according to his clinical characteristics, whether it is suitable or not to test”, he said.
Regarding vaccination, Bertone explained that “we have a primary schedule of a first, second dose and some people receive additional doses, older than 50 with Sinopharm or people with severe diseases. Then we start with second and third boosters, every four months. Now. , we are with the third reinforcer, some people are with five doses and others with six”.
