Nicolás Kreplak used data from The New York Times to ensure that the management of the Covid pandemic “was a success” in Argentina

Covered in figures published by the renowned American media The New York Times, the Minister of Health of the province of Buenos Aires, Nicolás Kreplakasserted that the management of the pandemic “was a success” in Argentina.

On his Twitter account, the minister published the results of a study of the World Health Organization (WHO) embodied in the United States newspaper, which exposes the excess mortality in the world during the health crisis Covid-19.

“Argentina has very good results, realizing that the health strategy, the management of the pandemic and the work of the health team was a success”stated Kreplak, who explained that excess mortality -that is, deaths above the usual average- is calculated when the deaths that a country had during the pandemic are compared with the statistics of recent years.

“In our province and in our country, the excess mortality of 2020 and 2021, according to the estimation of the WHO study, It gives very good results compared to great powers of the world. This is because there was no lack of medical attention and the system did not collapse”, analyzed the minister.

In these graphs, it is first seen that the United States, for example, has 15% of deaths above the usual average, against 12% from Argentina. The country figure is identical, for example, to that of Italy, the United Kingdom and Spain; and it is only one point above Germany, with 11%. Other Latin American countries, such as Peru or Ecuador, place this indicator at 97% and 51%, respectively.
