247 – The PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) said on Wednesday (4) that the status of the Kovit-19 epidemic in Cuba was “worrying” due to the record increase in epidemics caused by the spread of the highly contagious delta variant.
In the last two weeks of July, the number of confirmed Govt-19 cases continued to rise, said Ciro Ugarde, director of PAHO Health Emergency.
According to the latest PAHO report, between July 18 and 24, there were 51,081 Covid-19 cases (+ 21.1% compared to the previous week) and 446 deaths (+78) reported in Cuba. From July 25 to 31, there were 61,375 infections (+ 16.8%) and 494 deaths (+48), UOL.
Dealing with the epidemic in Cuba has become a complex and challenging task because the country is under economic, trade and financial blockade imposed by the United States.
