On his Twitter account, the president called to ‘show the effectiveness of the Civil Defense of a State that protects its people.’

According to official sources, Hurricane Ida, a category one cyclone in the Saffir-Simpson scale, caused preliminary damage to crops in western Cuba, as well as loss of roofs on facilities, falling trees, power lines and telephone lines.

After directly affecting the Isla de la Juventud Special Municipality and Pinar del Rio province, the National Meteorology Institute reported that the hurricane left Cuba for the Gulf of Mexico.

‘Ida is moving away, a strong challenge, but the greatest of all remains and grows: #COVID19. Let us put our efforts at the height of the innovation of our science and sacrifice of health personnel,’ the head of State tweeted.
