    THE SECRETARY OF HEALTH IS AT YOUR DOOR FOR INSULATED case of another suspected case of influenza A

    First confirmed victim of influenza A in Santa Cruz

    The first victim of the virus A (H1N1) in Santa Cruz is a child of two years. Little suffered from epilepsy and a severe respiratory illness - which integrates a high-risk group - and contracted the disease. As reported by doctors, his death - which occurred on Monday in Rio Gallegos - was caused by the combination of its base with the pathology of influenza A. Investigating causes of two other deaths.

    Caleta Olivia (agency)

    The information was given on the same day the provincial secretariat of Health was too short. Spoke of a death of a positive case for comorbidities (epilepsy) with severe acute respiratory infections (IRAG).

    The child had died in full seizure since he was not responding to treatment for his condition earlier.

    The official report that the province conducts detailed epidemiological and virological surveillance of (IRAG), and that while IRAG not fall within the definition of suspected case is sampling and antiviral treatment.

    Furthermore, it transpired that swab samples were sent to the Institute Malbr?n of two people killed this weekend to see if the cause of their deaths have any relation to influenza A.

    One of these cases corresponds to an operator of oil 49 years of age, who worked at Pico Truncado, who died on Saturday in a private sanatorium in Caleta Olivia as a result of pneumonia that plagued it for several days and made a medical late.

    The other deaths for which samples were sent to Malbr?n occurred in Gallegos. This is a man of 38 years who was interned in the regional hospital last Wednesday and died on Saturday.

    Analysis of samples of two deceased elderly could be at 5 or 7 days.

    Also, from the Caleta Zonal Hospital, indicated that there are four confirmed cases of influenza A in the city, "evolving favorably," although there are other people accused as "suspected cases" that are placed in the care sector intensive.

    As for pregnant patients who are in the hospital in the capital Santa Cruz, it was reported that two high and remains in a room.

    Officials INSULATED

    Moreover, the undersecretary of Health, Santa Cruz, Sergio Vukovic confirmed to a newspaper in Rio Gallegos to be a suspected case of influenza A. Since Sunday, the officer is at home in "respiratory isolation and treatment with Tamiflu (oseltamivir).

    On Monday the Minister of Social Affairs, Mat?as Maz?, replaced him at the meeting of COFESA (Consejo Federal de Salud), which was held in Buenos Aires with all holders of Public Health of the country.

    Just at that reunion Maz? Minister was accompanied by the director of epidemiology in the province, Graciela Algorry.

    The official recalled that now goes to a 'phase of mitigation "and stressed that many measures will be taken now in other provinces are already under way in Santa Cruz as the" precautionary closures of sites where people concur in bulk, "so that" all of the recommendations made, we were already a step forward. "

    The holder of the Ministry of Social Affairs said that it will continue to supply Oseltamivir "to all patients with acute severe infection requiring hospitalization, regardless of the evolution of symptoms, and suspect cases which belong to a risk group."

    Potential hazards TRAVEL

    On the other hand, the minister expressed concern that many people in this province do not take the necessary break in the winter. Many have taken it as a vacation, and traveling as usual tourist places.

    At the stations in Rio Gallegos commented on Thursday that airlines go to Buenos Aires were saturated passengers.

    Something that shows that there is a palpable awareness of the danger zone to move to an epidemiological risk as the metropolitan area.

    Moreover, it is not that people living in Buenos Aires took their precautions, ignoring the recommendation not to travel, tourism officials because of El Calafate, as Ana Ianni, commented that "following the holiday of July 9 many people have decided to come "and that the flights are almost full for Thursday, Friday and Saturday."

    However, Ianni, director of the municipal Tourism, said that it is taking all the precautions of hygiene in hotels and restaurants in the tourist village, which previously had a meeting with traders.
