The Buenos Aires Minister of Health, Nicolás Kreplak, said: “Between now and March or April it is likely that we will have a new wave as has been seen in all years and in other parts of the world”

The Buenos Aires Minister of Health, Nicolás Kreplak, warned that “it is very likely that between now and April we will have a new wave of cases“Of coronavirus. In addition, the official warned that “many older people between 18 and 39 years are canceling the turn for the second dose because they relaxed due to the drop in cases”.

The Buenos Aires official stressed that in the province of Buenos Aires there is already free vaccination for the first and second doses because they have already given shifts to all the elderly, but he remarked that “there are many who do not go.”He warned that the age group from 18 to 39 years was the group that most canceled shifts and linked it to the drop in cases and relaxation in health care. That is why he asked to make an effort in those who “have less notion of risk.”

“Beyond that we can have a regrowth in the summer, which we hope is not very strong if it appears, from now to March or April we are likely to have a new wave as it has been seen in all the years and in other parts of the world, we have to have a very large differential: that there is no unvaccinated population, that is to say, to reach at least 90% of the population already vaccinated ”, said the official in statements to Futurock.

“Many older people between 18 and 39 years are canceling the shift for the second dose because they relaxed due to the drop in cases,” warned Kreplak (EFE)

The aim is to reach the next fall with the entire population vaccinated with three doses thinking that, at that time, as is being seen in Europe, a strong wave of infections may occur ”, said the head of the Buenos Aires health portfolio.

The average number of cases is in “a stable situation,” Kreplak said and specified that in the last week there was a small increase in infections of 12% but that later “it stabilized.”

In the immediate, it does not seem that there will be a regrowth. If in these conditions of circulation we do not have an influx of serious cases, we are in a position to say that it is a good epidemiological moment. If we continue vaccinating, we will not have a large outbreak, “he said.
