BUENOS AIRES - Argentina's curve of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infections has begun to show a decline, more than eight months since the first case was detected, the Health Ministry's Secretary of Access to Health Carla Vizzotti said on Wednesday.

An analysis of week 43 of the epidemic, which runs from Oct 18 to 24, indicated a decrease in the number of cases across the country, said Vizzotti.

"We see a stabilization in the number of cases and the beginning of the downward curve nationwide, not only in the AMBA (Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires) region," Vizzotti said.

Argentina registered its first case of COVID-19 on March 3 and has to date reported 1,262,476 confirmed cases of infection and 34,183 deaths from the disease.
