Two Cuban provinces make progress with less Covid-19 cases
Santiago de Cuba, Jul 9 (Prensa Latina) Encouraged of being the two Cuban provinces with the least number of Covid-19 cases, Granma and Guantanamo are making progress in the second stage of recovery.
The governors of Granma and Guantanamo, Francisco Escribano and Emilio Matos, respectively, explained on Wednesday during the Mesa Redonda (Round Table) radio and TV program the steps their provinces are taken to return to normal activities and guarantee, mainly, food for the population amid the severe economic situations.
Escribano praised the natural potentialities for agriculture in Granma province, with products such as beans, which is achieved despite the eminently mountainous topography of its lands.
He talked about drought as one of the obstacles agricultural plans have had to confront, in one of those longest negative situations in the last few years, with a rain average of 100 millimeters, well below the historical average of around 170.
For his part, Matos recalled that Guantanamo province only reported 19 patients with the pandemic and an incidence rate of 3.4%, and has been more than 70 days without positive cases. All this was achieved due to the leading role of the health sector and the students of the Faculty of Medical Sciences.
Breeding turkeys and other animals, restoring disuse farms and promoting aquaculture are among the programs Guantanamo province is prioritizing for food production, Matos said.
