The COVID-19 death toll now stands at 1025 and the fatality rate remains at 0.68%. Just in June, so far there have been 60 deaths.
Regarding infections, the majority occurred due to autochthonous transmission (1,051), 1,107 were contacts of confirmed cases and 34 acquired the virus abroad, a record mostly affected by Cuban travelers from Russia (32), Spain (one) and Venezuela (one).
10 foreigners also tested positive, seven of them “imported cases.” On the day, according to the MINSAP, 20,992 PCR samples were processed.
By age group: 194 were under 20 years; 391 were aged between 20 and 39 years; 410 were between 40 and 59 years; and 190 were over 60 years.
Regarding territories, despite experiencing a discreet decline, Havana accounted for the highest number of cases: 398. It is the first time since April 1 that the capital has reported less than 400 daily cases and, according to Dr. Francisco Durán, this is good news although “the chickens shouldn’t be counted before they hatch.”
Nine municipalities in the capital, along with two from Mayabeque and one from Pinar del Río, concentrated 31.7% of the transmission in the last 15 days. Quivicán continues to have the highest rates, followed by Sandino, which once again increased its cases at this point.
The incidence rate in Cuba in this period dropped slightly to 147.4 per 100,000 inhabitants.
The other territories that reported the most cases on this day were: Santiago de Cuba (165) and Pinar del Río (134). Only the special municipality of Isla de la Juventud did not report infections.
Yesterday 1,156 discharges were reported, according to the MINSAP, which also reported the existence of 5,917 confirmed active cases of the disease.
Of those diagnosed, 46.4% were asymptomatic.
