Cuba woke with more than a thousand discharges, four deaths and 850 infections in the last 24 hours, eight less than in the previous day and the majority (830) due to the autochthonous transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according to the report by the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP).
The situation looks extremely complicated and, due to this reality, the ICUs have once again set a new record, with 73 patients admitted until midnight; 36 in critical condition and 37 in serious condition.
Among them there are people whose age ranges between 100 and 39 years, although the highest concentration appears among those in their seventies. The records from Pinar del Río, Matanzas and Santiago de Cuba are abundant, even though most of the cases are reported in hospitals in the capital.
