The Ministry of Health of the Nation reported that 113 new deaths by Covid-19 occurred. This is the highest daily record since the onset of the pandemic of the coronavirus in Argentina. There had never been more than 100 deaths. In addition, 3,937 infections occurred.
So, Global numbers indicate 2,373 fatalities and 130,774 positives in the country. It is worth contextualizing that the National Government’s policy of making the quarantine more flexible until August 2 is subject to the improvement of the health situation and the last official part may generate pessimism.
The AMBA continues to be the most affected area. There were 2,556 infections in the province of Buenos Aires and 1,090 in the Federal Capital. The occupation of intensive care units is 65%.
Of the total infections, 1,095 (0.8%) are imported, 41,086 (31.4%) are close contacts of confirmed cases, 66,293 (50.7%) are cases of community circulation, and the rest are under epidemiological investigation.
