"The death toll from swine flu in Argentina continued to rise as President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner said she would not rule out closing major public venues where the virus could spread more quickly.
Dr. Juan Manzur, the new health minister, said Friday that 44 people had died from swine flu and that the country had 2,800 confirmed flu cases. The numbers reflected a sharp increase compared with a week earlier, when there were 26 deaths and 1,587 cases.
Swine flu has killed more people in Argentina than in any other country in South America, where the winter flu season is just beginning."
Couple this with evidence from other parts of the world that some H1N1 strains are developing resistance to Tamiflu, it may be wise to limit the spread by limiting interaction and mobility of the population.
