The official also referred to the current situation of the coronavirus in Argentina: “In the Southern Hemisphere we are experiencing an epidemiological situation like the one you had at the end of the year, in December and January.”

Vizzotti was accompanied by the ambassador to Mexico, Carlos Tomada, and by the presidential advisor Cecilia Nicolini. There they reported that “the Health teams of Mexico and Argentina” held a working meeting on Monday to share experiences in health matters and, particularly, “to see what the response of the two countries to the pandemic has been.”

Regarding the agreement for the production of AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccines between that company and mAbxience laboratories, from Argentina, and Liomont, from Mexico, together with the Slim Foundation, the official recalled that “this collaboration was agreed in August with the aim of making possible a production for all Latin America ”.

“I want to value that collaboration, that joint work,” said Vizzotti, who stressed that joint production “will allow generating a step towards equity in access to vaccines.”
