The positivity index reported on this day for the country was 64.6%, since 198,532 tests were carried out throughout the national territory, well below the 10% recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

According to official figures, there are 5.7 million people who were infected and who have already been discharged, while the number of patients with a confirmed diagnosis of covid-19 who remain admitted to intensive care units was this Thursday of 2.406.

Although the number of internees continues to grow, it is still below the maximum peak of 7,969 on June 14.

The percentage of occupancy of beds in intensive care units for all types of pathologies is 40.6% nationwide and 41.4% if only Buenos Aires and its periphery are considered.

After months of favorable epidemiological situation, last October the Argentine government relaxed most of the sanitary restrictions in force until then, including the total opening of the borders.

However, the cases began to rise again since November and at a dizzying rate in recent weeks, leading to the “third wave” of covid-19.

For this reason, the Argentine government imposed the use of the health pass from January 1, which will require proof of complete vaccination schedules to be able to attend activities considered to be of “epidemiological risk”, such as mass events outdoors or in closed spaces.

Argentina, with about 45 million inhabitants, continues with its vaccination campaign that began at the end of 2020.

The vaccination bulletin so far recorded 81.1 million doses applied and more than 100 million have been distributed throughout the national territory.

A total of 38.8 million people received the first dose of the vaccine, while 33.7 million were already inoculated with the second.

Likewise, 2.8 million Argentines have received a third additional dose and another 5.6 million received a booster dose, within the framework of the vaccination strategy that began in October to reinforce the immunity of various groups.
