Out of a total of 2,714 studies carried out the previous day, 13 were positive for the SARS-Cov-2 virus, investigations that now total 234,817 on the Caribbean island, explained Dr. Francisco Durán, director of Epidemiology at Minsap.
Of the 13 confirmed cases (six women and seven men), eight were asymptomatic. He specified that four of them correspond to the group under 20 years of age, while no deaths were reported remaining at 87 for 11 days, with only one critical patient and none serious.
For clinical-epidemiological surveillance, 181 people are admitted, and another 254 are closely followed in their homes from Primary Health Care, while 47 are active patients, 46 of them with a stable clinical evolution, Durán explained.
Since the first case was released on March 11, Cuba has been working hard on a government plan to stop the spread of this disease, and now of the 2,462 cases diagnosed with the disease, 1,326 have received medical discharge, 94.5 percent of the total.
It highlights in today’s part that people diagnosed as positive for SARS-Cov2 are located in the provinces of Artemisa and Villa Clara, territories that for more than a month have not registered any cases, a fact which shows the complexity and rapid transmission of this coronavirus, Duran noted.
The expert stressed that the country is going through a favorable scenario with 13 provinces and the special municipality of Isla de la Juventud in phase three of the recovery, Matanzas in two and Havana remains in one, which implies reinforcing all actions to do not increase the number of positive people.
