The vice-governor of the main Cuban city pointed out that this reduction is due to the vaccination process and highlighted the five candidates created by scientists from the Caribbean island, three of them already validated for emergency use.
Cuba has become the first country in the world to vaccinate its children from the age of two.
He recalled that on the 15th, the airports, marinas and borders open to international tourism.
However, he admitted that Havana’s situation is complex, although actions are being undertaken with popular involvement to face the difficulties.
He remarked that the effects of the 243 additional measures of the U.S. blockade against Cuba implemented by Donald Trump have affected the economy to unsuspected levels.
One has to be in Havana, in our country, to know what is happening; it has a practical effect on daily life while the United States seeks to encourage the internal counterrevolution to destabilize the country, he said.
Góngora assured that the call for the November 15 march responds to foreign interests and intends to attack Cuba’s sovereignty and independence.
