This is a middle-aged woman and a boy and a half years, who died last week, but reached for confirmation of Malbr?n last Wednesday and Thursday. From Epidemiology said that should not be alarmed because it is facing a new peak of the disease. Confirm whether there is still the baby of five months who died last Friday 7 was caused by that virus.

    Frida Cappato, head of epidemiology, said that there is a new peak of influenza A. That no new deaths. And we must not give false alarm. The official made these statements after he was officially confirmed that, until yesterday, four were killed by the virus H1N1 in San Juan. "Four died from the virus, two women and two children. And the last two cases occurred just a week ago and a couple of days ago we received the confirmation, the official said. People need not panic. Perhaps we another few days has confirmed the death but a death that occurred long ago. I still do not receive the result of all the samples we sent to analyze the Malbr?n.

    Cappato also denied rumors of children with influenza A (H1N1) placed in two public hospitals. It said that there were 7 boys placed in Children's Hospital, and 7 at the Pediatric Service of Marcial Quiroga, but with seasonal respiratory disorders as often happens this time every year. "

    Also yesterday, two new suspected cases of influenza A revolutionized the education community. Occurred at the School Rosa Clara Cort?nez in Desamparados.

But we have extreme preventive measures to follow the dictates of normal classes. "

    Compared to the cases this week in the three schools mentioned, Cappato said that they became suspicious and alarming people is not only a clear diagnosis. "This happens because people with flu symptoms to the doctor who will confirm them and make the state a certificate flu unclear what kind of flu-sufferers said the head of Epidemiology. Prescribe licensed by influenza A, but at no time make clear that it is not the H1N1 virus and that makes people confused. We must be cautious, since this violates the dictates of normal classes and the recovery of lost time. "

    Cappato said that the province, until yesterday, there were 4 deaths confirmed by the H1N1 virus, 40 positive cases, and over 400 samples analyzed in Malbr?n.

    Re: A/H1N1 deaths in San Juan province


    There is controversy over deaths and 2 beds available
    She is a woman of 37 years of Caucete, and a baby of 8 months who died in San Luis derivative.

    Yesterday, the list of those affected by influenza A in San Juan had a tragic turn, and which were confirmed deaths in the first 2 influenza A. San Juan This is an 8 months old baby who died after being transferred to San Luis to its attention, and a woman of 37 years who lived in Caucete. Both were three fundamental characteristics in common: they gave positive AH1N1 the virus, not until last night admitted to the statistics of deaths from the Ministry of Health of the Nation, and both spoke of lack of beds in public health, something that was controversial with local authorities.

    The first death in San Juan by influenza A, after suffering a shortness of breath, the baby was Tiago Molina, only 8 months old. But not died in the province, but in San Luis, where he had been moved into provincial health flight with his mother on Thursday June 25 last. He was taken to the Regional Hospital and died on Monday 29, at 0:30.
    Doctors puntanos already had a swab and sent to the Institute Malbr?n. And the result just came yesterday at noon. According to yesterday told this newspaper Cristian Cano, chief of Epidemiology, Ministry of Health of San Luis, the study confirms that influenza A was. " Was that what you told the local health authorities. And the owner of Epidemiology, San Juan, Frida Cappato, confirmed daily CUYO that "unfortunately there are two cases of San Juan killed by influenza A and the baby was" very badly, went to hospital for Garrahan of Buenos Aires, and its seriousness, he had to stay directly in St. Louis. "

    In the case of this creature, however, what was controversial was the reason for the transfer. It is revealed that according to the doctor Edgardo Derman, health coordinator of the flights from San Juan (activity to be done in coordination with the provincial Public Health), the baby had to be taken to San Luis "in all of San Juan because there was no bed in therapy Intensive-level public or private. Only one flight was made when the case of health could not be handled or treated in the province, and this case could have been seen in San Juan if there had been bed. "

    By contrast, Cappato denied yesterday that it had hitherto missing beds in the province. "At the level of public health facilities have had no information of lack of beds," he said. And at private beds are ready for us when we need them. "

    Still, the second death of a San Juan by influenza A, which occurred last Saturday, also involves a shortfall of beds in the public eye, depending on the version of the Mercedes family Videla, the woman died. A son of the woman who told caucetera middle of last month was taken to hospital Caucete department for review by coughing and a suspected influenza box, but told them that there were no beds available, so no internal or analysis was made (see page 3).

    The availability of resources (already opened another front of conflict in this case with the Doctors' Union) is not the only point where it crossed versions. Is that on Sunday morning killed a man 57 years in cardiology at the hospital and Rawson, although there was said off the record that it was a case of influenza A, it was originally denied by Frida Cappato. "It is investigating whether samples were removed, where is the sample and what the outcome," said the official. Also circulated the rumor that the death of a teacher of 38 years in Rawson was influenza A. But Cappato said that officially there was no record of that case. And, meanwhile, last night in the nation have not recorded any deaths in the San Juan 2.
