From a sanitary operation carried out by the municipal authorities, a new outbreak of infection was detected in a popular neighborhood of Greater Buenos Aires. It is the José Luis Cabezas settlement, which shares boundaries between Ensenada and Berisso, where six people tested positive to the tests, and more than 30 underwent swabs for presenting symptoms.
During the operation, which was carried out by personnel from the municipalities in conjunction with representatives of the Province and the National University of La Plata (UNLP), a house-to-house survey was carried out to corroborate the situation of the 1,200 families living in the neighborhood.
The results showed six positive cases, of which 3 were transferred to the Municipal Hospital of Punta Lara, and the other 3 remain isolated with health care. In addition, more than 30 people with symptoms were detected, who underwent the corresponding study and are awaiting the results.
The epidemiological report determined that the outbreak began with a “Close contact” with a patient who lives in La Plata. That person brought the virus to his family (three members) and spread the plague to others who live in a nearby house.
In addition, during the health operation, surveys were carried out, and the agents applied 150 influenza vaccines to people considered to be within the risk groups.
For two weeks, the epidemiologists of the Province have been looking at the popular settlements, which number more than 1,400 in the urban territory that surrounds the Federal Capital, and 345,000 families live there, according to official surveys.
