“Se acelera la transmisión de covid-19 en Sudamérica”


La Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS) advirtió que la transmisión del covid-19 “aún se está acelerando” en Brasil, Perú y Chile, y pidió no flexibilizar las medidas de contención de la pandemia en la región.

“En Sudamérica, estamos particularmente preocupados porque el número de casos nuevos reportados la semana pasada en Brasil fue el más alto en un período de siete días desde que comenzó el brote. Tanto Perú como Chile también están reportando una alta incidencia, una señal de que la transmisión aún se está acelerando en estos países”, dijo la directora de la OPS, Carissa Etienne.

Con un total de 2.4 millones de casos y más de 143,000 muertes reportadas al 25 de mayo, América Latina superó a Europa y Estados Unidos en el número diario de infecciones, convirtiéndose “sin duda” en el epicentro de la pandemia del nuevo coronavirus, agregó durante la sesión informativa semanal de la OPS.

Y llamó a los países a no bajar los brazos en los esfuerzos para frenar los contagios, que se estiman superiores que los detectados.

“Para la mayoría de los países de las Américas, ahora no es el momento de relajar las restricciones o reducir las estrategias preventivas”, señaló Etienne.


La OPS recomienda una combinación de medidas de distanciamiento físico de la población, realización de pruebas diagnósticas y preparación de los servicios de salud para hacer frente al covid-19, declarado pandemia el 11 de marzo tras reportarse por primera vez a fines del 2019 en China.

Etienne indicó que la OPS prevé que Brasil tendrá un pico de 1,020 muertes diarias por covid-19 para el 22 de junio, citando el modelo del Instituto para la Métrica y Evaluación de la Salud de la Universidad de Washington (IHME por sus siglas en inglés).
