    Argentina has a mixed economic system which includes a variety of private freedom, combined with centralized economic planning and government regulation.Argentina is a country in South America bordering the Southern Atlantic Ocean.Argentina is a member of the Common Market of the South (Mercosur).Argentina's continental area is between the Andes mountain range in the west and the Atlantic Ocean in the east.Diverse geographical landscapes produce varying climates from tropical in the north to tundra in the far south.Neighboring countries include Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay.The government system is a republic; the president is the chief of state and head of government.

    Argentina covers about one third as much land area compared with the size of the USA.

    Argentina: Daily confirmed deaths: how do they compare to other countries?

    This chart shows the daily confirmed deaths per million people of a country’s population.

    Why is it useful to look at biweekly changes in confirmed cases?

    For all global data sources on the pandemic, daily data does not necessarily refer to the number of new confirmed cases on that day – but to the cases reported on that day.

    Argentina: Cumulative confirmed cases: how do they compare to other countries?

    This chart shows the cumulative number of confirmed cases per million people.

    Argentina: How did confirmed deaths and cases change over time?

    So far we’ve focused on confirmed deaths and on confirmed cases.

    What is counted as a test?

    The number of tests does not refer to the same thing in each country – one difference is that some countries report the number of people tested, while others report the number of tests (which can be higher if the same person is tested more than once).And other countries report their testing data in a way that leaves it unclear what the test count refers to exactly.

    Argentina: Daily confirmed cases: how do they compare to other countries?

    Differences in the population size between different countries are often large.To compare countries, it is insightful to look at the number of confirmed cases per million people – this is what the chart shows.

    How have countries responded to the pandemic?

    Travel bans, stay-at-home restrictions, school closures – how have countries responded to the pandemic? Explore the data on all policy measures.

    Why is it useful to look at biweekly changes in deaths?

    For all global data sources on the pandemic, daily data does not necessarily refer to deaths on that day – but to the deaths reported on that day.

    Argentina: Are countries testing enough to monitor their outbreak?

    To be able to properly monitor the spread of the virus, countries with more widespread outbreaks need to do more testing.

    What does the data on deaths and cases tell us about the mortality risk of COVID-19?

    To understand the risks and respond appropriately we would also want to know the mortality risk of COVID-19 – the likelihood that someone who is infected with the disease will die from it.

    Why adjust for the size of the population?

    Differences in the population size between countries are often large, and the COVID-19 death count in more populous countries tends to be higher.Because of this it can be insightful to know how the number of confirmed deaths in a country compares to the number of people who live there, especially when comparing across countries.

    Argentina: Global cases in comparison: how are cases changing across the world?

    In our page on COVID-19 cases, we provide maps and tables on how the number and change in cases compare across the world.

    What can I do to avoid bed bugs?

    Although bed bugs do not carry disease, they are an annoyance.See our information page about avoiding bug bites for some easy tips to avoid them.For more information on bed bugs, see Bed Bugs.

    Why does CDC recommend packing these health-related items?

    It’s best to be prepared to prevent and treat common illnesses and injuries.Some supplies and medicines may be difficult to find at your destination, may have different names, or may have different ingredients than what you normally use.

    Why is data on testing important?

    No country knows the total number of people infected with COVID-19.All we know is the infection status of those who have been tested.All those who have a lab-confirmed infection are counted as confirmed cases.
