"
          Consulted on this approach for identifying possible cases, he added that "there are many types of influenza, at least identify the type A allows us to provide immediate care to suspects stronger and avoid unnecessary treatments engripados common."

                    Yesterday he met another victim of fatal illnesses compatible with influenza A, but will wait for confirmation. The Central Laboratory continues to receive federal and reagents proceed with the purchase. Reaffirm that the disease is controlled.

                    Geipe TO THE FACT
                    From the Central Laboratory noted that unlike Malbr?n it takes between 15 and 20 days to confirm cases, local analysis results delayed between 48 and 72 hours.

                    Since mid-week, left the Central Laboratory for testing of suspected samples of influenza A H1N1 by the lack of reagents and expected since the dispatch of the Nation. They argue that this complicates the understanding of the state of viral circulation in the province. Yesterday saw the death of a person with severe respiratory problems in addition to long waiting list for confirmation.
                    The decentralization of tasks in the study of suspected samples were concluded just a week and then be discontinued because the National Health did not respond to the request for provision of reagents.
                    In this regard, Undersecretary of Health, Emilio Lanari, told here that the recent meeting of COFESA had a commitment from the head of the health, Juan Manzur, to send a small party soon.

                    With the number of cases, Lanari said that there had been no news. Ie maintaining the number of confirmed in 151, of which 9 were faltales.
                    Also reported that was reported yesterday a suspicious death. A woman of 50 years who died after suffering severe respiratory disease, in which 33 additional deaths since the beginning of the pandemic of influenza A.
                    From the Central Laboratory, the holder Gerardo Andino, confirmed that the lack of response from Health of the Nation on the provision of reagents, complicating the detection of cases and knowledge of the state of viral circulation.
                    According to, "on Wednesday were left to analyze samples of influenza A suspect entered the lab," and said that despite the request submitted to the national health portfolio on the need for another batch of reagents to unzip the institute's work Malbr?n "was not received until today (yesterday) a response."
                    He stressed that the decentralization of analysis would have enabled the rapid detection and confirmation of positives and negatives of the disease. What was now impossible because they lack the necessary equipment to perform appropriate testing. In this regard he added that having the kits and reagents are essential when it is returned to the public activities of the province and governed the possibility of a resurgence of cases of this disease.

                        This report from the Epidemiology Branch of the Ministry of Public Health, where the owner of the area, Angelina Bobadilla, also stated that the deaths, 8 (7 positive and 1 negative) were reported by the National Reference Laboratory, the institute Malbrán others reported 2 confirmed from the Central Laboratory of the Province and 1 was identified by Manlab, private laboratory for testing.

                        Posted on 14/08/2009

                        However, only 10 were killed by the H1N1 influenza, according to official data from the Province. In both cases, 170 were positive.

The official explained that records in the database a total of 31 deaths associated with respiratory diseases, so then subtracted to obtain determinations of 20 cases studied.

                        'SCHNEIDER LIE'

                        "In the hospitals are ordered to bring a cause of death other than the actual cases in which not even count as doubtful. For example, almost all being 'bilateral pneumonia' instead of Influenza A, then not only have or are suspected as possible when the count "(heard on Metropolitan)

                        170 positive cases

Adolph Schneider argued that the procedure is implemented in Corrientes. "We are the only province that reported daily as the disease evolves and we know the numbers exactly," said the minister, who, however much of the last two weeks there were no major "news" about the pandemic and, suddenly, the initial two deaths had more than tripled, while in his words, decreased viral circulation. Regarding the suspension of the school insisted that "there is no epidemiological grounds to justify a suspension. What you have are coming elections and this is an intentional policy. The school will continue normally."
