Cuba reports 56 new cases of COVID-19, one death and 24 discharges

Dr. Francisco Durán, director of Epidemiology of the Ministry of Public Health (Minsap), reported at the weekly press conference, who specified that to date 5,702 patients have been recovered and 94 transmission events have been detected local, of which nine remain active.

A modification was introduced in the protocol of Cuba, and that is that the contacts of confirmed cases and suspects are monitored, they have home entry, with restriction measures.

They cannot go out, the basic health team follows their evolution, studies are carried out to determine if they are positive or not in a certain period, but they are not isolated in a center, except for people who due to diseases, age or some personal or social characteristics, require admission to a center, “Durán explained.

“We call for reflection; we urge that all contacts that are maintained in their homes comply with the restriction measures to avoid contagion from other people.”
