BUENOS AIRES, June 5 (Xinhua) — Argentine Health Ministry said on Friday that to the moment the confirmed cases of the A/H1N1 flu in the country was 163, most of whom are children and teenagers.

    Most of the patients are students of elementary and middle schools from Buenos Aires, capital of the country and from Gran Buenos Aires. The Malbran Institute has 830 pending samples to be analyzed.

    In the last 24 hours there were 16 new cases and the Emergency Committee has been discussing the possibility of suspending school activities.

    Argentine Education Minister Juan Carlos Tedesco and Interior Minister Florencia Randazzo were against suspending school activities.

    Tedesco said that “it is not a generalized situation” in the country to take a measure like that because “to the moment, there is a strong concentration of confirmed cases in the city of BuenosAires and the suburbs, mainly at the Gran Buenos Aires north zone.”
