“If we consider the average number of daily cases, we have decreased for more than 100 days and although there were some small load alterations that caused this decrease to be greater or less than some days, in general terms we can say that since the beginning of June the curve shows a downward slope, “the teacher and researcher told Télam Soledad Retamar.

Currently, with more than 80 percent of adults vaccinated, it has 661 seriously ill patients. by Covid: 430 are not vaccinated, “said Olszevicki.
