Cuba: Havana begins recovery phase from Covid-19
Havana, Jul 3 (Prensa Latina) Havana begins today the first phase of a three-stage roadmap to recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic into normality after almost 15 days of good health indicators.
Thanks to the positive results in more than three months of confronting the epidemiological crisis caused by the spread of the SARS CoV-2 virus, the rest of the country's territories, except Matanzas, which will do so next week, will move to the second phase, starting this Friday.
We always knew that Havana would be the most difficult and complex place to face the pandemic due to the characteristics of a country's capital, Prime Minister Manuel Marrero said when announcing the decision last Wednesday.
However, he said, the results of the work carried out have made it possible to appreciate in recent days the progress made to the point that seven days ago in the capital the health indicators have been being met, although some daily cases still remain, an issue that is part of the process.
In the Cuban capital, a specific plan of measures for the territory will be applied, in keeping with the guidance of President Miguel Díaz-Canel to advance towards a new normality through a gradual and asymmetric process, taking into account the characteristics of each place and with health indices under strict surveillance.
The day before, the president of the Provincial Defense Council of Havana (CDP), Luis Antonio Torres, specified that the step to this first phase does not mean the abandonment of the measures hitherto sustained.
He also called to be prepared for the possibility that new cases will emerge in the next few days due to the number of asymptomatic people who may have the disease, and he aimed to maintain attention and rigor around compliance with the provisions.
The measures for this phase include the progressive reactivation of suspended economic and service activity, but keeping the sanitary measures implemented and epidemiological surveillance.
