In a broad overview of the work of the Government in these almost two years, he said that in that period the main activities were carried out in a particularly complex context, characterized by the intensification of the US blockade, with 243 new measures of economic asphyxiation and financial persecution.

As well as the increase of the political-ideological subversion, the offensive to discredit the Revolution and the impact of the world economic crisis.

For the confrontation of the Covid-19 pandemic, he said, the Temporary Working Group was formed to implement, manage and control the plan for the prevention and control of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, he added in the presence of Army General Raúl Castro; the head of State, Miguel Díaz-Canel; and the president of the ANPP, Esteban Lazo.

The main result of the quality and effectiveness of the protocol is the percentage of people recovered (99.1), as well as the 0.86 lethality rate, the lowest in Latin America and one of the best in the world.

“As part of the compliance with the measures, 12 drugs were produced by our Biotechnological and Pharmaceutical Industry and work was done on five vaccine candidates, three of which were approved as vaccines,” he highlighted.

Among the main issues of the government’s work are, in addition to the confrontation with Covid-19, the fuel situation, electricity generation, supply of the regulated family basket and other products of the retail trade.

Also, the food industry, agricultural and livestock production, transportation, and other issues.
