The representative of the Pan American and World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) in Cuba Dr. José Moya highlighted how the Covid-19 curve reported following the most recent variants is a third smaller compared to Delta.

Cuba´s progress is the result of domestic vaccination campaign, Mr. Moya told Prensa Latina, while praising immunization in children, which facilitated the opening of the school year.

To date, 9,917,183 (89.5%) of Cuban population has been fully vaccinated with homegrown vaccines (Soberana 02, Soberana Plus and Abdala), according to reports by Public Health Ministry (MINSAP, in Spanish).

In a meeting with press, ahead of the World Health Day (on April 7), Mr. Moya also shared WHO´s ambition to achieve, by June 2022, that immunization coverage worldwide reaches 70% with basic doses.

Mr. Moya revealed, however, that even though a great number of nations have already reached 70% and some other ones are even above such a figure, there are still inequalities globally as many countries are unable to hit 40 or 50%.
