HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 10 (ACN) Cuban authorities called to join efforts in confronting the new epidemic outbreak of Covid-19 in the country, after the increase of new infections was confirmed.
Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero insisted on complying with the established measures and social discipline to avoid a more complex scenario, particularly in the country's capital, which since Saturday returned to the phase of limited autonomous transmission.
Meanwhile, Public Health Minister Jose Angel Portal warned of the consequences of the epidemic outbreak when most of the country is in the outgoing third phase, except for Havana and Artemisa provinces.
We can contain this problem if everyone acts as they should, Portal stressed, while insisting on the use of masks, the practice of social distancing and proper hand and surface hygiene as indispensable measures.
So far this month, 255 new cases were confirmed in the country, almost the same number as in June.
