The Argentine Health Ministry confirmed Friday that two new Covid-19 cases with the Delta variant had been detected by migration officials, as Argentina’s death toll reached 95,000.  The two Delta cases, according to the government, were detected in two adult residents who recently returned to the country from the United States and Venezuela. Both had previously tested negative for Covid-19 before boarding a plane to Argentina and their tests carried out after landing at Ezeiza international airport also came back clean. However, both began showing symptoms a few days after arrival. New tests confirmed they were positive for the virus and both individuals are now in isolation, said the Health Ministry.
