        The other deaths occurred where the epidemic are: Province of Buenos Aires (29), the Federal Capital (six), in Corrientes (two) and Misiones (a). In the last official party mentioned 1587 people infected, although the real figure is multiplied several times.

        Ensure attention

        Given the sharp increase in medical consultations for influenza A, the local Public Health Department said that care is provided in the guards of the municipal hospitals after reinforcements have in them. Demand in the effectors Rosario rose on average by 70 percent since the beginning of the epidemic of influenza and other diseases of cold season. For the same reason shifts were extended to pediatric controls and healthy adults. In addition, provincial authorities said that there is no risk of missing drugs, distributed by the State for free.

        "They were all enhanced services and redoubled the efforts of staff to the attention of thousands of Rosario attending hospital daily to watch", informed the council Tuesday, and gave details of the increase in consultations.

        Reportedly, at Children's Hospital Victor J. Vilela number of patients rose by 90 percent, and this Monday his guard were treated in 600 children. In the health center were suspended surgeries scheduled.

        In the case of Hospital Roque S?enz Pe?a, demand climbed a hundred percent and the first day this week there were 510 people, including adults and juveniles.

        The same situation occurred in hospitals and Alberdi Carrasco, and from the Ministry of Health also highlighted that 60 percent of the queries originate from respiratory problems.

        Drug studies and chinstrap

        Moreover, the authorities came to clarify some of the fears that are installed on part of the population, such as lack of drugs to combat the flu or lack of inputs, for example, make the samples in Cemar Rosario.

        In response to that concern, the Director of Epidemiology in Santa Fe, July Befani, reassured the public and stated that "in the province is guaranteed providing ozeltamivir (Tamiflu, the brand name), the WHO suggested that antiviral treatment for of influenza A ".

        "This week will more doses of Buenos Aires, and we can ensure that everyone who needs the drug, with it," said Befani in dialogue with, and detailed the procedure to access the ozeltamivir.

        From the laboratory Cemar, moreover, confirmed to the Mobile Channel 3 that there was no congestion collapse due to lack of reagents and studies to determine whether or not a patient has H1N1 virus are performed normally.

        Chinstrap made in prison

          Five of them are confirmed, all belonging to Rosario
          There are seven fatal cases in the province with symptoms related to influenza A

          Secretary of Health, Debora Ferrandini, explained that for seasonal influenza body builds immunity to vaccine and risk groups, which does not occur with influenza, which is why there were many cases in a short time. He also said that with the measures of prevention and prophylaxis should be an exercise in commitment and solidarity of society.

          Secretary of Health of the province, D?bora Ferrandini, confirmed tonight that the deaths in the province with symptoms related to Influenza A total of seven cases. Of these, five are confirmed as positive (all in the city of Rosario), while the other two are awaiting the results of the analysis.

          The official also explained that "in our very transmissibility is circulating respiratory syncytial virus, which is of concern to us all winter, so we have a combination of the two epidemics (syncytial virus and influenza) in children. But in adults, the vast majority of flu are Influenza A, "which recalled that since the Ministry of Health are considering any flu as influenza A."

          On the concern of the population before the pandemic situation, Ferrandini said that "it is understandable, because the health emergency was declared, were suspended ?ulicas activities, elections, then it is logical that people assume that we have a situation of extreme gravity, and this is so at some point, but not numerically: the vast majority of reported flu and are disqualified as data, because very little people who served in relation to the amount of people engripa. "

          In this regard, the secretary of Health said that "we think we are not mistaken if he believes in people in 5000 had been restored and flu or flu are having at this time. This is common observation: you go to any work environment is safe and with people who were a couple of days with fever and then it happened discomfort. That could have been influenza A, and not a doctor and led to much less notice. These people are restored without any sequelae and that is what happens in the vast majority of cases. "

          However, Ferrandini also acknowledged that "there is a huge number of cases requiring hospitalization, and what is striking is that it is younger people who are not usually that has affected the seasonal flu." This seasonal flu affects far fewer people because, as explained by the doctor, "every year we build our immunity and vaccination for groups at risk," but this does not happen to combat influenza, "which is why in so little time so many people are affected by influenza A. "

          An exercise of solidarity and commitment

          The official was interviewed tonight on the Theme of the Day, which is broadcast daily on the cable channel C and D (20 to 21). They pointed out that anyone can get sick from the flu at any time, "which means that no one will die, even going to make some form of pneumonia that requires hospitalization. Most likely that means in two days in fever, feeling ill and need a bit to rest. " In such cases are asked to affected during seven days, even though they feel well, they are isolated at home and use chinstrap. "

          This order, like the health emergency and other steps taken, and the precautions that are recommended, "are primarily to protect those few who, sick, they might have become more complicated. This is an unusual year for our social practice but extremely valuable: we all commit ourselves in a very great effort to save the health of a small number of people who could benefit from this act of solidarity, "he explained.

          Finally, Ferrandini reviewed some of the measures of prevention and more effective prophylaxis can be implemented in homes and workplaces: the use of a chinstrap, which is the most practical, or other item that cover the nose and mouth, which is an efficient barrier to isolate respiratory secretions such as coughing, sneezing and even talking, which are the ways of the influenza virus from person to person through the air (which takes very little).

          While on the surface the virus can last a few hours, so we recommend washing surfaces more frequently than is done routinely, and do it with water and lavandin to 1 percent.

          He also said that "we have to assume the practice of washing hands frequently, not a bar of soap that you can use someone else, because the soap can get the virus, which can scratch the soap so that is not shared . Otherwise, you can use liquid soap, which is more practical.
