Gov't denies Swine Flu outbreak, suggests flu shot before visiting US
After four people were diagnosed with Swine Flu in a Carmen de Areco hospital, the head of the BA province Health Ministry’s Primary Care office, Luis Crovetto, suggested that people planning on visiting the US should get a flu shot before traveling.
He also rejected rumours saying there was a Swine Flu outbreak in the country.
Regarding the patients currently being treated, he stated that “one of them recently visited the US, and the Malbrán Institute is treating him to determine which virus strain they are dealing with.”
The Government official clarified that “neither the country nor the province are dealing with a Swine Flu outbreak” and said the population should not be worried.
He concluded by assuring that “every infected patient was treated quickly” and that no other cases were registered.
