Rise in COVID-19 cases in Puerto Libertad.

According to the latest records of the Ministry of Public Health of the Province, Puerto Libertad ranks second -after Posadas-, with number of active cases of Covid-19, which worries the health authorities as well as the general population.

Consulted about the situation, the Chief of the North Paraná Zone, Dr. Jorge Frowein pointed out in this regard that “the upsurge in the number of cases is due to several factors, including the fact that there are people with a single dose applied, a high percentage of people in an age group ranging from 18 to more than 40 years of age, who are reluctant to be vaccinated, and in many cases also to some relaxation of the population regarding the corresponding protocols, such as social distancing, the use of a chinstrap, or sharing the same mate, for example. “

Regarding the recommendations to take into account, Frowein stressed “not to lower your guard since the pandemic did not passIf it is not enough to observe the countries where there is already a fourth wave. The premise is to be vaccinated with the two doses, even with a third when given; statistics tell us that the new cases that are occurring are in the unvaccinated band. There is also the latent danger that new strains will appear, with greater morbidity and mortality ”, he stated.

To close, he stated that “Vaccines are safe and highly protective, so there is no need to be afraid of getting vaccinated and for the rest, it is a way to protect yourself and others ”.
