April 10th, local time, the Ministry of Health of Argentina released the latest data, indicating that there were 19,419 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country, with a total of 2517,300; 297 new deaths, with a total of 57647; and a total of 2217,783 cured cases.
On the same day, several private and public medical and social insurance institutions in Argentina jointly issued a statement expressing concern about the recent rapid growth of confirmed cases.
The statement pointed out that the increase in cases has caused a serious crisis for Argentina’s medical system.
At present, the average bed saturation rate in the capital city of Buenos Aires and surrounding areas has exceeded 69%, up 13 percentage points from two weeks ago, and the saturation rate of beds in some hospitals is even more than 90%.
It is hoped that people can travel less, reduce the frequency of contact with others, and avoid further deterioration of the epidemic.
