      Google translation:

      Reported Sunday evening that the provincial Ministry of Health
      Deaths from influenza A in the province are already 18

      According to data provided by the Situation Room, there are more than 2,000 cases reported, of which 400 were confirmed as positive.Of the 15 deaths corresponding to node Rosario, Santa Fe to two and the rest of the Venado Tuerto.

      The Ministry of Health in the province of Santa Fe reported tonight, through the Situation Room that operates under the Contingency Plan prepared in connection with the pandemic influenza A (H1N1), the total number of reported cases with Epidemiological fact sheets exceeds 2000, with 400 confirmed and 18 deaths, 15 of which belong to Node Rosario, one of the Venado Tuerto and two of Santa Fe

      This record corresponds to the information available to date Sunday July 5 to 20 hours.

      New Protocol

      In relation to the cases reported by epidemiological record, stated that under the new protocol has been performed only for severe cases confirmed virological and interned.

      On the deceased, the report states that all have virologic confirmation Influenza A (H1N1) and ages ranging from 6 to 59 years (11 women and 7 men).

      Also, the total deaths, 12 had risk factors and 6 had no prior record of risk.


      Lower the amount of international consultations and

      Provisional data on the production of services because it was noted that in the last week can be seen coming down the outpatient visits in health centers and hospital guards, while the amount internments.

      30,000 claims from outpatient care, and guards have internments 13,000 influenza-like disease diagnosis.

      Behavior of the epidemic

      Regarding the evolution of the pandemic influenza A (H1 N1) in the provincial territory, the behavior varies in different geographical areas, which has already begun to overlap with the high incidence of respiratory disease which is the seasonal period.

      There is a group of cities among which are Venado Tuerto, Santa Fe, Rosario and other locations in the metropolitan area where there has been movement from one person to another influenza virus, while another group does not report suspected cases or are isolated cases that can be linked directly with patients in close contact with these other cities in the province of Buenos Aires or.


      Intervention Strategies

      For these reasons the strategies have been adapted to the time evolution of the epidemic in each place, giving rise to two protocols of intervention:

      For the first group of cities virological diagnosis in the public network (for laboratory confirmation of cases) is no longer used only for inpatients, and therefore all cases of disease that occur with temperature of 38 ? and flu symptoms are considered generically as "influenza-like illness."

      For the second group of cities, it continues with the approach of all laboratory-confirmed cases to generate suspicion, leading to the categorization that until now was used to transmit information on the epidemiological situation as if "suspect" or "confirmed" influenza.

      Epidemiological

      This heterogeneity, added to the difficulties offered by the epidemiological surveillance underreporting or delays in the transfer of files complaint, determined that the party has lost its epidemiological daily value it had at the beginning of the epidemic as a document for communication to the public of developments across the province.

      That is decided in accordance with the decision by the Ministry of Health of Nation, an update of epidemiological day by hand, appealing to the mass media to disseminate news to the community in terms of new measures containment social lethal cases or changes in the protocols.

          Explosion in Argentina Pandemic H1N1 Fatalities

          Recombinomics Commentary 17:17
          July 6, 2009

          According to data provided by the Situation Room, there are more than 2,000 cases reported, of which 400 were confirmed as positive. Of the 15 deaths corresponding to node Rosario, Santa Fe to two and the rest of the Venado Tuerto.

          The Ministry of Health in the province of Santa Fe reported tonight, through the Situation Room that operates under the Contingency Plan prepared in connection with the pandemic influenza A (H1N1), the total number of reported cases with Epidemiological fact sheets exceeds 2000, with 400 confirmed and 18 deaths, 15 of which belong to Node Rosario, one of the Venado Tuerto and two of Santa Fe

          This record corresponds to the information available to date Sunday July 5 to 20 hours.

          The above translation describes 18 confirmed fatalities in Santa Fe Province, including 15 deaths in Rosario, as of Sunday night (see updated map). A national report which reported no deaths in Santa Fe last week has an updated number of 9 for Santa Fe, and 60 for the entire country, most of which is from cases in adjacent Buenos Aires Province. The 60 confirmed cases is a marked increase from the 26 reported last week However, the 60 reported cases do not include other recent fatalities cited in media reports which included 11 deaths in Corrientes, 5 deaths in Neuquen, and at least one death in Tierra del Fuego, Jujuy, Cordoba, San Juan, Salta, La Pampa, Rio Negros, Entre Rios, and Santiago del Estero. The national totals do not include any fatalities in the above provinces, raising concerns of a rapid rise in cases that has not been reported beyond the local media reports.

          These data indicate the death tally has tripled in the past week and is among the highest in the world (behind the United States and Mexico). However, the cases in Argentina developed very recently, raising concerns that the virus has changed.

          To date, there is only one partial pandemic H1N1 MP sequence at Genbank or GISAID. It was collected in April and is identical to a large number of public sequences. However, there are no sequences representing the recent fatalities or June precursors to H1N1 associated with the recent fatalities.

          The rapid rise in cases and the failure to provide timely sequence data continues to increase pandemic concerns of an evolving H1N1 that is largely missed by current surveillance approaches.

          Recent reports out of <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.recombinomics.com/News/07030901/H274Y_HK_SF.html">Hong Kong</a> described oseltamivir resistance in a <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.recombinomics.com/News/07040901/H274Y_Asymptomatic.html">traveler</a> from San Francisco who had not taken Tamiflu, raising concerns of resistance in the US. Although no such case has been identified to date, the Hong Kong case was mild and recent (detected June 11) and US efforts have been directed away from mild cases. Moreover, none of the sequences from resistant cases in <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.recombinomics.com/News/06290902/Pandemic_H1N1_Resistance.html">Denmark</a>, Japan, and Hong Kong have been made public, even though sequences were generated weeks ago.

          The failure to promptly disclose these sequences is also cause for concern. In Japan, notification was reportedly delayed while a manuscript was being submitted to the Journal of Infectious Diseases, although release of sequence data would not prevent publication.

          The delays in release of important sequence data from pandemic H1N1 are hazardous to the world's health.

            Re: Explosion in Argentina Pandemic H1N1 Fatalities

            Imported cases from Argentina and neighboring countries continue to be detected in Italy.

            Today we have had two children from Argentina (five year old girl, Toscana region; a two month old girl, Lazio region); and two patients from Peru (a seven year old girl and a woman).

            All these patients seem to be in not serious health conditions.

            For more infos: http://www.salastampa.ministerosalut...2371_testo.rtf

            If these people are carrying A/H1N1v with some antigenic and/or genetic mutations, then at least in italian gene sequences databases there should remain some traces...

              The official confirmed yesterday that the Health Minister's Office, Juan Manzur, noting that "90% of cases of influenza are influenza A".

              He returned to say that no plan to close the social and productive activities as determined by the Federal Health Council on the recommendation of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that the total suspension of activities.

              And the attitude held by some employers in the night life that have restricted their work: "We are not going by the closure but only for deterrence and social consensus to sustain these measures over time." He said that this situation of "epidemic fashion" has brought a need to re-establish family boundaries with children and greater responsibility in the private sector. "Maybe when this happens we can move forward on this in the night life is everyone's concern."

              Finally, he noted that "health is a responsibility of society" and that "you can not just leave in the hands of doctors." Therefore invited everyone to relax and not to maintain measures of hygiene and social distancing.

                While there was a decrease in the number of consultations, Ferrandini told this newspaper that the placement is particularly serious because the defendant are mostly young people, who therefore have an ability to resist extreme forms of manifestation of symptoms increased, and are taking longer periods of hospitalization.

                      RISING CURVE
                      3 confirmed deaths from other influenza A in the node Rosario

                      A flu yesterday joined three others dead, all young adults in the node Rosario, and amounts to 25 the number of casualties in the province. Lifschitz The mayor indicated that the pandemic will have effects worse than the global crisis on the local economy.

                      A flu yesterday joined three other deaths of young adults in the node Rosario, and 25 are victims of the pandemic in the province of Santa Fe, where there are more than 18 thousand cases. Secretary of Health, Debora Ferrandini reiterated that the lethality of the virus is low.
                      "Alarmad?sima would be if we had fewer cases and the number of dead. Then it would have to think that the virus is mutating," said the official. Besides the health impact, there are other yellow lights. The Mayor Miguel Lifschitz found yesterday that the partial paralysis of activity as preventive measures will have greater impact for the city to the international financial crisis.

                      In that sense, Ferrandini considered to be "reducing the economic impact to a minimum. This was a source of conflict with some local governments, but the recommendation of the World Health Organization, the Pan American Health Organization, Ministry of health of the nation and the consensus of the ministers around the country should not be forcibly shut down any productive or social activities. " The official argued that "a total decrease in transmission is much less and does not justify the social and economic loss." He also referred to other experiences. "In Mexico everything was closed at the beginning of the pandemic and then when we had to take these measures in some states most affected, it was not possible to do socially, because people had more fear of losing industrial sources to the pandemic."

                      Along the same line, Lifschitz pointed out that "we have not taken restrictive measures" of economic activity. "I do not think you can blame the excess disability, I think that has worked with responsibility, without which this idea was implemented in the city of Buenos Aires and that nothing happens without the end they had reached some parts of the close the whole country, "he said.

                      The mayor expressed his deep concern about the economic impact of the pandemic. "These days, this month and a bit more, will have more economic impact on the city might have the international crisis." He pointed out that driving is not "percentages" but that "it is a personal impression," and also stated that "the international crisis was not in the city in a meaningful way, although there was some fall-off of industrial activities," he said.

                      The paralysis of the activity has to do with the fear caused by the pandemic.Ferrandini predicted that Argentina will have many more cases of this disease than in the rest of the world, because it is the first populous country in the southern hemisphere where the pandemic occurs during the winter, and provided a historical figure. "We reviewed the epidemiological evolution of the pandemic of 1918 and had a similar. It began in Texas with very few cases at the beginning of summer, there was a very significant surge in the southern hemisphere, which started in Peru and then returned north much more virulent, "said the official.

                      In this sense, the main concern lies in the high number of deaths in Santa Fe On the relation between the cases and deaths recorded, pointed Ferrandini low lethality of the pandemic, recalling that last year 2354 people died from pneumonia in the province of Santa Fe "We'll see at the end of the year if we had more deaths from respiratory causes," said the official. But he also recalled that this is the first epidemic in which documented more than 18 thousand patients a month in the province.

                      "Until last year, we do not document?bamos if deaths from pneumonia related to influenza or not. Why do we start now, because the virus is new, because the entry was new and because the winter and there was much concern about how this virus will behave here and how can mutate, "said the official.


                      On the drastic measures, such as the suspension of classes, Ferrandini was considered effective to install the need to take precautions in the population. "We had concerns, and still have, it becomes a virus to public health because it is unknown, also because of the huge transfer fee and attack, that's not what we saw in other epidemics. Its effect on adult strip Young is another peculiar situation, as well as the stress caused to the health service, which is the most serious effect, "he listed the reasons for the decision taken by the provincial government.

                      But he also regretted not having the opportunity to put on daily deaths from influenza-A with other causes deemed most naturalized as traffic accidents or heart attacks. "I am very much the attention that parents are demanding the closure of bowling by influenza A, where more boys are killed by alcoholism and traffic accidents, that what will occur in dissemination and death from influenza," said the official .

Most provinces depend on the confirmation of cases Malbr?n Institute, which is three weeks late. Thus, there are provinces that say they have only 2 or 3 cases of flu, which at this stage of the pandemic is impossible. Probably more but those are the confirmations that they have received, "he said.

                          Finally, the official said that "to produce this information allows us to be confident that this is not an epidemic more lethal than the rest of the world or even from the other because the number of flu cases is very high in a very short time and comparing the number of deaths, the proportion is very low. Not a particularly virulent virus, but fundamentally committed to the population at risk. "
