A physician gives a prescription to a patient at a public hospital in Buenos Aires, June 29, 2009. Argentina has reinforced overwhelmed hospitals as flu cases swamp emergency rooms and H1N1 deaths rise during the depths of the southern hemisphere winter. The South American country has confirmed 1,587 cases from the new strain of virus, also known as swine flu, which is spreading. Many of the cases have been reported in the densely populated working-class suburbs and impoverished slums that ring Buenos Aires. Argentina's health minister resigned on Monday amid an outbreak of the deadly H1N1 flu strain that has killed 26 people in the country, the government's cabinet chief said.
