Reuters data showed that the Corona virus infections in Argentina are close to exceeding the 700,000 mark today, Saturday, to enter the country among the first five centers in the world in terms of injuries and deaths, despite seven months of quarantine, which severely damaged the already weak economy.
The country recorded an increase rate of seven days, with an average of 11,000 new infections per day, to come after India, the United States, France and Brazil, all of which have a much higher population. While the death rate reached an average of 365 deaths this week.
On Friday, health officials had recorded 691,235 injuries since March, along with 15,208 deaths.
And the state of Buenos Aires announced earlier in the day that its estimates of deaths due to Covid-19 were less than the real number by three thousand and 523 deaths, which angered many citizens who were already tired of months of isolation measures that failed to control the outbreak of the epidemic.
