Cuba reports less cases of Covid-19, but maintains high death toll

Havana, Sep 2 (Prensa Latina) With 6,208 new cases confirmed today with Covid-19, Cuba decreased the number of infected for the sixth consecutive day, but maintains a high number of deaths with 87.

‘Although numbers keep a trend not exceeding 6,500 per day, the country still has an epidemiological situation, not allowing to be overconfident, warned national director of Epidemiology, Francisco Durán.

He also highlighted that yesterday they analyzed the highest number of samples to detect the coronavirus (57 thousand 137), and eight million 42 thousand 254 since March 2020.

With the numbers of these last six days, the impact rate in Cuba discreetly decreases to 1 thousand 73 per 100,000 inhabitants, but six provinces maintain a complex scenario: Cienfuegos, Pinar del Río, Mayabeque, Sancti Spíritus, Ciego de Ávila and Artemisa, the expert specified at the television press conference.

The Caribbean nation totals since March 11 last year, 665,672 people diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 and five thousand 464 deaths for a fatality rate of 0.82 percent.

The drop in the number of cases, Durán said, is related, among other factors, to the positive balance between medical discharges and the infected, since in the last hours 7,885 patients left hospital institutions after being negative to the virus.

This way, the country reaches 627,242 persons recovered from Covid-19.

The specialist emphasized the need to increase care for pediatric patients, which although this day the number decreased to 1,397, two children are in intensive care, critical, and one in serious condition.

During the last 15 days, 25,348 infants were notified as infected, for an average of one thousand 690 each day.
