Is that since last June 29, the Health Emergency Operations Committee (COES) decided to move from containment to the mitigation, considering that influenza A H1N1 is circulating steadily in the province . Thus, we handle only those who belong to a risk group or those with unfavorable developments requiring hospitalization.

        At its meeting yesterday the head of the Health at the national level with provincial ministers of the area, it was decided that all suspected cases over 15 years will receive antiviral treatment without waiting for confirmation Malbr?n.

He also explained that the evolution of the epidemic in the region "has a displacement in time and may have a pattern different from what is happening on Capital and Greater Buenos Aires. Therefore, measures for that part of the country does not imply that they are necessary for our province. "
        And he adds: "The effectiveness of a measure with high social impact may be diluted or lost if taken as early as late." But it also explains that social distancing is meant by the collective attitude of solidarity to increase social distance effective in reducing the risk of contagion. "

        Centenary> The mayor Javier Bertoldi toned down the discussion by influenza A, and said he favored taking "drastic measures" as a possible preventive closure of all facilities of the City of Centennial.
        Yesterday at a press conference said that despite not dramatize the problem, close the office of the management of communal land, by Mauricio Inostroza, because space is very recudido and "there are lots of people" .
        The closure of a sector of the community, joined the House of Culture and Sports, places with a conglomeration of people.

Bertoldi said that this direction will be closed, but stressed that there is a work located in San Juan Bosco and Intendente Pons, where will the new portfolio of Lands, in a larger space where it is today.

        "Not consistent with the drastic action of closing, people are very aware of what is happening with the flu. With a law that will not move to avoid slowing the virus, is a matter of conscience, "she said. He clarified that "there are services that can not be cut off as water and sewers. It is impossible to close such areas, but if problems arise in culture can do, like in the movies. "

        Guild municipal Bertoldi who asked not to close the Family Action Units (FAU), as many kids, even with low weight-withdrawn food diary, it would be a mistake, according to the state, closing the dining room.

            The Emergency Committee for Health (COES) reported that there was a significant decrease of the total consultations in health. Is stable, the number of cases of patients with influenza or respiratory diseases.
            In a report circulated, the Committee on Health Emergencies, COES, said that in the week running from June 29 to July 5 was a "significant decline" of the total consultations for influenza in health care public and private the province. In the same period, the agency found that the number of cases is stable, which indicates, "For the moment," a correction of the upward trend of the outbreak.

            The data, corresponding to the current epidemiological week 26, which covers the period indicated.

            On that basis, the COES that "had been rectified by the time the strong uptrend of the flu outbreak detected in mid-June, from 488 cases in week 23, ranging from 6 to June 14, 5579 to at week 25, 21 to June 28, according to the notifications of the public health sector.

            Under the situation, maintaining the preventive measures widely used in population-hygiene, social distancing and others - is not recommended the suspension of work or travel, sports or cultural, but its relevance to the needs of these preventive schemes. If the criteria vary due to the dynamics of the epidemic, the agency shall inform the new recommendations.

            The COES adds that "stabilization in the number of cases was the desired effect by the suspension of classes in provincial schools, which also observed in other districts of the country."

            Furthermore, "is thought to have contributed significantly to social distancing measures and prevention of respiratory infections that both the general community as many of the organizations which have been increasing up."

            The epidemic of influenza in Neuqu?n exhibited similar behavior in the rest of the country and the world. The vast majority of cases presented tables mild, indistinguishable from seasonal flu, which recovered spontaneously without specific treatment.

            The report indicates, however, that there is a very small percentage of cases evolving rapidly into pneumonia tables and / or respiratory failure requiring hospitalization and specific antiviral treatment. Unlike seasonal influenza, these cases are occurring more frequently in young and middle-aged than in older adults. So far only one confirmed case died of influenza A H1N1 in the province.

            In recent days increased the number of children under two years of age with bronchiolitis boxes.
            Bronchiolitis is a respiratory infection that affects the small airway and lung in some cases cause severe breathing difficulties. Its origins are different respiratory viruses, including the flu, so it is expected that the annual seasonal peak of the disease coincides with the flu.

            In summary, while there has been a significant change in the pattern of consultations for influenza, it is noted that the number of cases requiring hospitalization in children and adults. The high demand is the number of beds available in the health system in the province, both in the public sector and private. ..

              PAHO, skeptical of the vaccine

              Montevideo (dpa)> The Pan American Health Organization is skeptical about the availability of vaccine for treating influenza A in developing countries, as the representative of Uruguay, Jos? Fernando Dora.
              Dora said that "when we start to produce a vaccine starts from zero and demand is very great."
              "The big discussion that arises is that richer countries want to have the vaccine for all its people. And it may not reach the first production for the entire population of the planet, "he added.
              Therefore, PAHO recommends the establishment of risk groups and priority is given to the people of the health services working in care of the sick "because they are more exposed." Then be extended to other populations, he added.


              Dora said that PAHO estimates a decline in the number of cases at the end of winter as any disease of this kind passes through a period of growth, then finally down to a plateau. "In any transmissible disease, it happens," he said.
              According to the spokesperson of the international body, "where the larger the number of cases decreases the number of (people) can be susceptible to contracting the disease. They then become resistant and acquired immunity against the disease and are no longer susceptible. The point is to identify when the plateau leads to a drop in cases, 'he explained.

                The COES referred to the possibility of delaying the return to classes in the province. "There is no reason to consider it. It is estimated that the contribution of the suspension of classes in provincial schools has been important since the decline of cases in people younger than 25 years has been marked since the first week in which the measure became effective , "says the communique. In addition, the COES indicated that next week, with the epidemiological assessment of the pandemic, announced guidelines to follow.
                Meanwhile, COES confirmed that during the epidemiological week 27 (6 to July 12) saw a significant drop in the number of flu cases treated in health facilities, both public and private.

"The vast majority of cases have mild tables, indistinguishable from seasonal flu, which recovered spontaneously without specific treatment. There is a very small percentage of cases, some young, fast-moving tables to pneumonia and / or respiratory failure requiring hospitalization, "he says.
                Furthermore, described as' hope 'that at the end of July, the return of the school holidays, can cause a "new increase in cases and the steady movement of viruses in the community is maintained for several weeks."

                Risk groups

                As for the license to persons within the risk groups, the provincial COES recalled that the decree established a pre-license "until further notice." The measure extends to employees who have influenza A or displaying any symptoms, pregnant women and immunocompromised workers or who belong to groups at risk for chronic diseases with a negative trend or decompensated.

                Cipolletti: Another suspicious death

                Dr. Luz Maria Riera, covering the area of hospital epidemiology and a member of the Crisis Committee of the Local Health System, said the demise of women took place on Thursday at the local hospital. At the provincial level, it was reported yesterday that the Ministry of Health received notification of positive results for influenza A H1N1 in two patients who died in Black River. The notifications are samples of a person confined in a sanatorium Viedma and other private Luis Beltran, a minor, stemming from the hospital General Roca. So far, the national reference laboratory ANLIS-Malbr?n reported 59 positive cases, which included three deaths (two with severe disease required), and 13 negative.

                A rate "unprecedented"

                Geneva (AFP-NA)> The influenza A virus is spreading at a rate "unprecedented" in the world, said the WHO did not disseminate reports about new developments in the pandemic. "In past pandemics, influenza viruses longer than six months to spread as much as did the new H1N1 virus in less than six weeks," he said.
                The large number of infections in such a short time "due to a combination of factors, 'said a WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl. Globally, the H1N1 virus had been contaminated with 94,512 people in 136 countries and territories, causing 429 deaths.
                "The virus is spread very effectively from man to man, even without any symptoms in a carrier of the disease, he said. Moreover, viruses are spreading at the speed of transatlantic flights that travel into the thousands.
                Questioned about how they can determine the policies of vaccination in the absence of global statistics, Hartl WHO recalled that "the virus and can not be stopped" and that "all countries will need the vaccine." Virtually, the 6800 million people on the planet could be contaminated, he said.


                However, WHO stressed the "benign symptom of the overwhelming majority of patients who generally are restored, even without medical treatment, one week after the onset of first symptoms. In this situation, the organization added that "the counting of individual cases is not essential (in the most affected countries) to the level or nature of the risk posed by the pandemic virus, or to give information on the best answer to the disease.
                In some countries, screening of suspected cases "mobilizes most of the capabilities of the laboratories, which leaves little room" for the monitoring and investigation of serious cases and exceptional events ", the WHO stressed to justify its decision not to provide more global statistics. WHO called on countries concerned to continue to "closely monitor unusual events, such as fatal or serious pollution of the population, or unusual symptoms that could point to a worsening of the dangerous virus.
                From now on, be limited to the WHO report on the new countries. "WHO will continue to call on those countries that reported the first confirmed cases and, as far as possible, give weekly epidemiological figures and descriptions of new cases", he said.
