To follow the measures guided by the Cuban government is necessary to preserve life against Covid-19, the individual conscience is the salvation of all. However, this morning I met parents who with their children for school – were not few. This shows total ignorance of the information given in the media.
How are these uninformed families, who prefer to watch a soap opera or a television series, going to comply with the measures if they do not know the guidelines?
As of today, Tuesday, and for a month, classes are suspended in Cuba to prevent the spread of the virus, but there are individuals who still do not have the perception of risk.
Now, as of today, the country will be semi-isolated with the regulations that will be applied in ports and airports to prevent the entry of infected persons and the departure of some irresponsible persons. Only the remaining tourists will leave, and the foreign ones will only be open to trade, since we still have a high dependence on imports.
What we are facing is not a matter of games and we must be aware of the threat posed by an epidemic that has claimed thousands of lives across the planet. Nor does this mean that we should be alarmist, but rather that we should comply with what has been established and trust in our health system, which has proven its effectiveness in other circumstances.
The important thing now is to understand that each and every one of us depends on each other.
