Despite the advances in the vaccination campaign in Argentina, the head of the PRO, Patricia bullrich, and a group of deputies and senators from Together for Change They sent a report to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, to denounce alleged irregularities in the vaccination plan promoted by the Government.
In the letter, the opposition leaders indicated that “the national vaccination plan does not meet the minimum standards of respect and protection of the human rights of all people provided for by Resolution 1/2021 of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights within the framework of SACROI-COVID19, in particular the principles of transparency, participation, accountability, equality and non-discrimination “.
In the middle of the electoral campaign in the face of the legislative elections that are held this year, Bullrich assured that “the distribution of the vaccines did not respect the principles of equality and non-discrimination”, that “those who are part of the ruling party were privileged” and that “At the same time, the information is practically nil and the population does not have access to it.”
With the aim of positioning itself politically and confusing society, in the thread that the opposition leader shared on Twitter said that “the lack of certainty regarding the time of vaccination generates enormous uncertainty” and added that “the reasons why are unknown. which only bought certain vaccines and others were rejected at affordable prices “.
However, Bullrich’s sayings contrast with reality. This week the daily vaccination record was reached with more than 304 thousand applications throughout the country, the government formalized the agreement with Russia for the local production of Sputnik V and the Buenos Aires governor, Axel Kicillofannounced the purchase of 10 million doses of the Indian vaccine Covaxin.
In addition, to guarantee the transparency of the vaccination process, the Government launched a platform that functions as a Public Vaccination Monitor. According to the updated data in the early hours of Friday, To date, 13,374,067 applications have been made throughout the country.
Of the total number of inoculations carried out since the start of the pandemic, 10,417,359 people received the first dose of any of the available antidotes, while 2,956,708 people have already received both supplements and are immunized. The total number of drugs distributed throughout the country is 17,322,690 doses.
Regarding the local production of the Sputnik V vaccine, this Friday the presidents Alberto Fernandez Y Vladimir Putin They formalized the agreement, with Argentina being the first country in Latin America to approve the vaccine and the second in the world. The head of state confirmed that a plane with the active ingredient will leave Moscow on Sunday to immediately begin development in Argentina.
Production in Argentina will be in charge of Laboratorio Richmond, and its holder, Marcelo Figueiras, anticipated that the plant located in the Buenos Aires district of Pilar has a capacity to carry out the formulation and packaging of up to 500 thousand doses per week, although he clarified that production will be subject to the amount of the active ingredient that is shipped from Russia.
Bullrich insists on politicizing the pandemic through political operations. In recent weeks she was exposed on two occasions: when she falsely accused the Government of requesting bribes from Pfizer, and when she went to a school in Morón to warn against virtual classes in pandemic on behalf of teachers and was denied by the workers of the education.
The new complaint, which has 28 pages, takes a tour of the actions of the different government officials, as well as the various vaccines with which Argentina negotiated, and maintains that “it can be inferred that the national government has guided the plan of acquisition of vaccines against the covid-19 virus with a view to arbitrarily and illegally favoring the participation of businessmen associated with power “.
“This plan has led to the failure of the disease transmission prevention program, with the consequent increase in the number of cases and fatalities, and the decision to persist in regimes restricting the rights of all people,” they said.
