The Government of Cuba has decided to maintain the measures adopted to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, despite the downward trend in new cases, in order to avoid “overconfidence” among the population that leads to a rebound.
On the last day, Cuba has registered six new cases of COVID-19, for a total of 1,947, while the number of fatalities remains at 82, three more than the previous week, when it completed a week without deaths.
In this context, the working group created by the Government of Miguel Díaz-Canel to manage the health crisis met on Monday and decided “not to let your guard down even with the tendency to decrease” on the contagion curve, according to the official newspaper ‘Cubadebate’.
“We must continue to persuade the population so that a state of overconfidence is not generated and the” preventive measures “continue to be applied, said Prime Minister Manuel Marrero.
In addition, he ordered extreme caution in the face of the rainy season to avoid the proliferation of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito, a transmitter of diseases such as dengue or Zika, which could complicate the health situation on the Caribbean island.
