Argentine president describes vaccination facts as reprehensible
Buenos Aires, Feb 22 (Prensa Latina) Argentine President Alberto Fernández on Sunday described the situation of a list including vaccinated officials at the Ministry of Health as reprehensible, while regretting the public derision it gave rise to.
When referring for the first time to last Friday´s outrage, the president tweeted that the decision he made against a reprehensible fact when pointing out that what happened, although exceptional, cannot be endorsed.
After underlining that even when they were in objective conditions due to their age or physical conditions to receive the Covid-19 vaccine, 'I cannot help but observe that a media scenario of public derision has been set up on these people and I do not want to endorse such a proceeding with my silence.'
Fernández expressed his sincere gratitude to the outgoing minister, whom he described as a pivotal person so that the pandemic does not rage on Argentines. 'He has been able to put up a broken health system and give each Argentine the pertinent attention when the virus made him a victim,' he said in reference to González García.
More than 700,000 Argentinians, he said, have been vaccinated. Over 400,000 have already received the two doses and have been immunized. The pace begins to accelerate with the arrival of more vaccines in the country.
