Argentina: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 53,670


Argentina: Covid-19 Coronavirus death toll is 53,670

Argentina health minister resigns over COVID-19 vaccine scandal.

Al Jazeera English shows that Argentine President Alberto Fernandez has sworn in a new health minister, Carla Vizzotti, as he grapples with a scandal over COVID-19 vaccines.

The now-disgraced former minister, Gines Gonzalez Garcia is accused of allowing people with connections to jump the queue and receive vaccinations out of turn.

A similar scandal erupted in Peru a few days earlier, and both governments are scrambling to regain their people’s trust.

Al Jazeera’s Daniel Schweimler reports from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The COVID-19 pandemic in Argentina is part of the global worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). On 3 March 2020, the virus was confirmed to have spread to Argentina. As of 14 March 2021, a total of 2,195,668 people were confirmed to have been infected, and 53,670 people were known to have died because of the virus. On 7 March 2020, the Ministry of Health confirmed the country's first documented death, a 64-year-old man who had travelled to Paris, France, who also had other health conditions. The case was really only confirmed as positive after the patient's demise.

On 19 March 2020, a nation-wide lockdown was established in Argentina. Responses to the outbreak have included restrictions on commerce and movement, closure of borders, and the closure of schools and educational institutions.

The meaning of the Argentina flag is interesting. The blue and white colors were chosen by Manuel Belgrano, the leader of the Argentinian revolution against Spain, and represent the blue sky parting to reveal white clouds, as is said to have happened when the Liberation demonstration began in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on May 25, 1810.

Argentina is located at a longitude that would naturally put it in the UTC−04:00 or UTC−05:00 time zone. However, it actually uses the UTC−03:00 time zone.

Argentina's official language is Spanish. Argentina has other spoken languages: Arabic, Italian, German, English, and French. There are also over one million speakers of various tribal languages, including Quecha and GuaranĂ­.
