if this holiday included airports, shops, malls, restaurants, sports halls, supermarkets, concerts, pubs etc, the reason given would have more credibility

Argentina: Maximum health alert / Standardize policies for all districts Influenza A: increasing paralysis of activities

Tuesday July 7, 2009

THE NATION

The fear of influenza A put a brake on sudden and unexpected to the overall activity in major cities around the country, although the Government insists discourage the closure of places of mass attendance. Less people in the streets, shows, cinemas and restaurants with almost no public faces many shops empty and chinstrap are already covered by the urban landscape.

A landscape of paralysis that could be maintained for some time, because the government decreed analyzed off next Friday (which is reported on page 11). In addition, yesterday began the forced school recess connecting with winter and will last until the end of the month. He also started the show early and judicial, for the first time since 1918, all the theaters in the country remain closed for 10 days (see Shows).

Even the Congress today decided to cease its activities as a measure to prevent the increasing number of cases of influenza in the country. Also the act of the AMIA, scheduled for 18, was postponed, like the memory in the Plaza Lavalle.

Shopping yesterday in the capital and large cities were almost no audience. The decision to suspend people from their outlets is reflected even in the guards of the hospital until recently and now crowded avoided as a potential source of infection.

Absenteeism began to become evident in private companies and public agencies, not only for cases of engripados to leave but they are taking preventive relatives of patients and risk groups such as pregnant women and immunosuppressed. And in the province of Buenos Aires, parents of children under 14 years who are not attending schools.

At home, meanwhile, continued to expand the restrictive measures of activities, such as the closure of casinos in Central Mar del Plata, Santa Fe, Victoria, Tandil and Melincué, and the Casino del Mar.

In the midst of growing social concern, the Ministry of Health yesterday announced that the country entered a phase of "mitigation" of the H1N1 virus that so far only included the metropolitan area.

These definitions came from a gathering of all ministers of health of the country with the aim of unifying criteria, because the divergence of the methods of combating the spread of the virus had begun to complicate the strategies.

"For all patients with acute respiratory disease requiring hospitalization must suministrársele medication, as well as those belonging to a risk group and those older than 15 years presenting symptoms," said Manzur.

One of the biggest concerns is that the stock of oseltamivir with which the Argentina. While the Government reported that two million of "treatments" (boxes with ten tablets) are available, the provinces did not receive the items. Moreover, according to some sources, the laboratory would have received Roche Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, the order by the Government over 1.8 million boxes of Tamiflu.

Almost two months of the international emergency, Argentina does not have the required number of rapid diagnostic kits for hospitals, which would enable to confirm the disease in four hours. Therefore, one of the measures announced yesterday is that only the swab will continue to seriously ill patients.

fair points MOP -

however, no moves to shut these places down.. just the Public Sector plus banks. the banks part makes no sense... presumably if there's less shopping, less going out etc, banks are also even emptier than usual

i've taken the tinfoil hat off, but it is still by me, on the sofa

It is a bit odd though. As Minos said, what difference will a single day make?
