The Ministry of Public Health reminds the public that the temperature has been low recently and people are prone to allergies, flu, colds, pharyngitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. They must take care of themselves and avoid infection.
We therefore urge not to neglect general precautions, especially in places with large audiences, such as those participating in the Prayer to the Lord and Our Lady of Miracles or those who participated in the September 15 procession.
Parishioners going to cathedrals or other temples can use a chin strap that covers the mouth, nose and chin if they have respiratory symptoms. Additionally, they are advised to sanitize their hands with alcohol gel and not to share items for personal use such as partners.
In addition, it is recommended to cover the mouth and nose with a disposable handkerchief or elbow when coughing or sneezing to avoid infecting others.
People who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19, influenza and pneumococcal can get vaccinated in a different support facility where they can start or complete the program.
In Cuatro Siglos square at the intersection of Alberdi and Caseros, vaccination services are held during the Novena of the Lord and Miracles. The vaccine run will be from 9am to 9pm on September 14 and vaccinations will also be given according to the national calendar. This person must carry identification and a vaccination card (if available).
The Ministry of Public Health urges food to be consumed in establishments and stalls authorized by the Foodology Program, as most street prepared foods are susceptible to foodborne illness (ETA) because they lack:
safe hand sanitizer
drink water to clean food
Separate raw and cooked food
safe storage temperature
prepared with drinking water
If the diet is unsafe, there is a risk of contracting certain amphetamine-type stimulants, which are often infectious or toxic and are caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemicals that enter the body through contaminated food or water caused.
Foodborne pathogens can cause severe diarrhea or debilitating infections, such as meningitis, and can also cause malnutrition, compromising the nutritional status of the most vulnerable populations, including infants, children, pregnant women, the elderly, and the immunosuppressed.
To prevent ATS such as salmonellosis or listeriosis, it is important to eat foods that are non-toxic and safe, because only these foods can meet dietary needs and help people lead active and healthy lives. There is no food safety without food safety.
