Argentina faces up harsh coronavirus wave impact

Argentina faces up harsh coronavirus wave impact

Buenos Aires, Apr 13 (Prensa Latina) ICU beds over the edge, infection record in the capital, and an explosive increase of coronavirus cases put Argentina on alarm.

Monday´s figures showed still high: 19,437 new Covid-19 patients in less than 24 hours and 179 deaths, raising to more than two and a half million cases and nearly 58,000 deaths.

Specialists and doctors on television urge population to ¨take care of yourselves because we are exhausted¨.

But the real thing is that in a short tour across a central neighborhood, Prensa Latina found many people on the streets and a large number of them wrongly wearing their face masks.

Argentina´s Health Ministry also detailed that 3,819 people are currently hospitalized in ICUs, where adults account for 60.3% of bed occupancy and 67.9% in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area.

‘Let’s use the face mask well! Let’s respect the two-meter distance! Let’s wash our hands! Let´s ventilate constantly! And avoid leaving the house if it is not necessary. It is very important!
