Cuba reported today 2,369 people recovered from Covid-19, 89.6 percent of the 2,646 confirmed cases of the disease since March 11, said Dr. Francisco Durán, national director of epidemiology.

During the usual morning press conference to update these data, it was learned that there were two hospital discharges in the last 24 hours, an unfavorable indicator since 188 patients with the disease remain active, 187 of them with a stable clinical course.

The health authorities reiterate that the risk is still extremely high, which is why they insist on compliance with control and protection measures to prevent the spread of the disease, and in particular to continue the massive investigations.

The day before, three thousand 34 diagnostic tests were studied throughout the country to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus, bringing the total number of samples taken so far to 270 thousand 989.

During the last day analyzed, no deaths were reported, so the number of deaths remains at 87 for more than three consecutive weeks.

Durán highlighted the preventive treatment being developed in this country since the beginning of the pandemic, with the isolation of contacts of confirmed cases and suspicious persons.
