Coronavirus

The restructuring of measures continues based on the progress of the coronavirus. In this case, the government, through the Minister of Health, Carla Vizzotti, announced that evaluate delete the isolation for close contacts with the full vaccination so that there is not a great economic impact. This has already been carried out in Uruguay and expect results.

In an interview with TN, the Minister of Health confirmed that her team, made up of epidemiologists and professionals from the Federal Health Council, are analyzing the idea of ​​eradicating mandatory isolation for people who have had close contact with someone infected and have the complete vaccination schedule.

This measure that the Ministry of Health is beginning to analyze has the precedent of Uruguay, where close contacts have no obligation to quarantine. Vizzotti, who is awaiting the results of this strategy, assured that despite these possible flexibilities they are always “looking at the security and evidence generated by this measure.”

Vizzotti continued his analysis by counting the ins and outs of the possible new measure: «We raised it for the health team, mainly, and in fact it is already being done, as in Córdoba, they are working with permanent monitoring. First from the health point of view, second, to ensure essential services and, of course, with the aim of sustaining economic and productive activity.

In turn, he added that there is the possibility that specialists consider the coronavirus as an endemic: “It is something that is being analyzed. But I want to emphasize that it is not because an economic sector has requested it, but that this is the point of view and it is what the current trend is towards. In Spain they are even considering taking it as a common flu.
