        Ensure that the number of deaths by influenza A is "reasonable" if one takes into account the actual number of cases
        Specialists said that the number of infected is much higher than reported officially, said the deaths could be due to a delay in treatment and the disease becomes more severe in sectors with fewer resources

        Although the 18 deaths reported for influenza A in just eight days were assessed as "severe" by health experts, several experts said that the number of deaths continues to the extent expected if one takes into account the actual number of cases.

        Is that, as estimated by the doctors consulted, the number of infected in Argentina is considerably higher than official reports.

        "The mortality rate should be calculated on the total cases, which is much higher than that reported by health authorities," said today the president of the Infectious Diseases Society of Argentina, Pablo Bonvehi, who is also a consultant to the Emergency Influenza A (H1N1).

        This coincided fellow of the institution, Pryluka Daniel, who explained that the number of actual cases is higher than reported because "first, Malbr?n announced the results late, but it is also common knowledge that For more than a week in the capital and suburbs are left to diagnose massive. "

        The reasons for the dramatic increase in deaths. The number of fatal cases in Argentina ranked the third in the list of countries with highest number of deaths from this disease.

        The Minister of Health of the Nation, Graciela Oca?a, said this morning that there were "various theories" about the causes of high death rate of influenza patients in the country, but did not clarify what feels more accurate, while called "no panic. "

        Pryluka felt that "it is likely due to patients not treated in time, especially those at risk is essential that immediate attention." "The delay in processing the information outside of time could have influenced mortality," added the doctor.

        The specialist added that in his view "the spread of the virus with the social, poverty of much of the population of the metropolitan area, begins to come into play in the death rate."

        This coincided Chief Department of Medicine Children's Hospital and chairman of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society of Argentina, Eduardo Lopez who said that people whose basic needs are unmet are more at risk. "The chances of access to health, housing conditions, nutrition of children are always factors that affect the respiratory and infectious diseases," explained the doctor.

        Considered correct in this regard the decision taken in the province of Buenos Aires to vaccinate children under 2 years against seasonal flu because it "decreases the risk of the most vulnerable."

        Addressing the spread. Regarding the treatment of the epidemic within the hospitals, the three experts considered essential to generate the special chambers for dealing with cases of influenza A. "Any measure to speed up consultation and reservation of beds in hospital is undoubtedly useful," Pryluka said.

        "I think it is the effective measure taken by the provincial Ministry of Health hospitals dedicated to preparing for these cases, as was done with the Malvinas Argentinas. At Children's Hospital did something similar and unified criteria for isolation and streamlines management of patients, "Lopez discussed in turn.

        The doctors felt that this year the situation of influenza in the country is more widespread than in previous winters. "The most important is the immediate. If the patient is treated early, complications can be avoided," said Pryluka.

        Lopez also said that it is very likely that the peak of the disease arrives within two weeks.

        "Be careful, it's a virus that must be respected, we must not forget that the WHO believes that the intensity of the pandemic is moderate. We must pay special attention in the international," the specialist.
