Kreplak warned that "in summer there could be a covid outbreak" and that there are many unvaccinated children

Nicolás Kreplak predicted this Thursday that there could be some kind of coronavirus outbreak next summer, for which he recommended “continuing to use the chinstrap” in closed spaces or with a high concentration of people due to the lack of air circulation due to use air conditioning.

The Buenos Aires health minister said there should be “a social debate” regarding restricting the circulation of people not vaccinated against the virus.

Kreplak warned that “you have to raise awareness, many people did not get vaccinated.” And he admitted: “Having 35-40% of children not vaccinated is really worrisome.”

The minister was asked if the circulation of unvaccinated people should be restricted. “It is a discussion that we must give ourselves, not only health, but it must go through society in general and I would do it now to arrive prepared (before the possibility of another wave) and I think the discussion is whether or not to put yourself at risk to the others, “he replied in a statement on Continental radio.

“You have to discuss it, you have to raise awareness, many people did not get vaccinated and not because they are against vaccines but because they are waiting and we do not want them to arrive too late (to inoculation) and then have to regret it,” he said.

In this sense, Kreplak commented that “in the world there are experiences where you cannot go to work, you cannot go to study, to the cinema, to the theater or to sports events if you are not vaccinated.”

“In the province we had about 350 cases per weekly average day and now we are at 460, that is, it rose a little, so we continue testing,” he said after which he pointed out that “the concern has to do with what we are observing in the northern hemisphere “where there was an increase in cases.

Pediatric vaccination

The minister once again expressed his concern that about 35% of children from 3 to 11 years old are not registered to be vaccinated against the coronavirus and asked to “sit down and reflect” on the importance of the population being immunized before the next one arrives. winter.

“We have registered 65% of the population between 3 and 11 years old; that is, there are 35% of boys who have not done it,” said Kreplak, who attributed this situation to the lack of information and the fear that some may have. parents before immunization, among other factors.

And he anticipated that the Buenos Aires Government will launch an “awareness campaign from here until the end of the year so that teachers have a pedagogical module on the importance of vaccines and that they talk about it in classes (so that) they can also invite parents to be trained in this regard. “

In this sense, he expressed that “there is a group that parents who may be afraid of the vaccine their children will receive, especially if the media speaks of complaints regarding the origin of the vaccines”, and remarked that “having 35-40% of unvaccinated children is really worrying. “
