Cuban government sends supplies to fight Covid-19 in Matanzas

Matanzas, Cuba, Jul 6 (Prensa latina) Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Tuesday tweeted that the central government is sending resources to support the fight against the pandemic in the western province of Matanzas.

‘Ahead of the peak of Covid-19 cases in #Matanzas we are also working urgently to create new hospital capacities,’ the head of State noted.

Diaz-Canel highlighted in his message that ‘no territory is alone in this fight that belongs to everyone.’

On another tweet, the president underscored that medical brigades will support #Matanzas to overcome the most complex epidemiological situation in the country.

‘Our doctors grow in the face of difficulties and build bridges to help in the most difficult times. Thank you, again, for so much altruism. #WeAreCuba,’ he added. In the briefing of the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) on Tuesday on the Covid-19 national situation, Matanzas presented 828 Covid-19 cases with the highest records in the municipalities of Cardenas (130) and Matanzas’ capital (309).

The tense sanitary panorama of the province is aggravated by the circulation of new strains of the coronavirus and indiscipline, recently noted a group of MINSAP specialists chaired by its minister, Jose Angel Portal.

To stop the high transmission of the virus and peak infections, Portal stressed the importance of individual, family and population responsibility.
