National Covid-19 cases doubled in the last two weeks, driven by the increase in the city of Buenos Aires. Specialists recommended the application of booster doses.
The specialists explain that beyond the new circulating variants, the cause of the increase in cases may be associated with a decrease in immunity due to the time elapsed since the previous infections and the administration of the vaccines.
“At the national level, what one can see is that in the last week the cases doubled with respect to the previous one, going from 130 to 252 daily averages,” said Conicet researcher Jorge Aliaga.
For the specialist and member of the Argentine Society of Infectious Diseases (SADI), “the regional situation is worrying, particularly in Brazil, where the health authorities this week once again imposed the use of masks at airports and on flights”.
“We already know what we have to do, apply the appropriate vaccinations and use masks in indoor places where we stay for a long time, ventilation is also key,” concluded Aliaga.
