Santa Fe: they blame the Colón championship for the increase in cases

An official from the Santa Fe Ministry of Health affirmed today that the reason for the largest number of coronavirus cases registered in the provincial capital “is called Colón de Santa Fe.”

The provincial director of the Third Level of Care of the Ministry of Health, Rodrigo Mediavilla, related the increase in cases in the city of Santa Fe with the celebrations for the football championship of the Colón club, which brought together many people in the streets without maintaining care .

The city of Santa Fe registered yesterday, according to the official epidemiological report, 439 cases of daily infections of Covid-19 while Rosario, which doubles in population, reported 377 cases.

“This change that there is, in which Santa Fe has happened to Rosario, obviously worries us as a Ministry and me, and forces us to think this,” said Mediavilla.

In that sense, the official added that “this analysis is somewhat called Colón de Santa Fe”, due to the celebrations of the “sabaleros” fans after obtaining a First Division soccer title for the first time, 11 days ago.

After the sporting achievement, many people from Santa Fe took to the streets on the night of June 4 to celebrate the championship, despite the recommendations to the contrary from the health authorities, the players and the club’s managers.

The festivities even continued the next day. “The health logic is very linear: if the conglomerates increase, the infections increase and the sick ones increase,” Mediavilla said about the popular festivities.

The health official said in statements to “Aire de Santa Fe” radio that “one understands the hubbub, the joy of the people of Santa Fe for their soccer history and having won the championship.”

“But the truth, that the images of 5,000 people, of an entire avenue of Santa Fe with blocks and blocks of people conglomerated really attracted attention,” he continued.

Although the city of Santa increased Covid infections in the last 15 days, going from 343 to 439 cases every 24 hours, the difference with Rosario is also explained by a decrease in this city, which went from 1,030 positives 15 days ago to 377 cases yesterday.
