The lethality on the island is already 0.60%. The death toll from this disease is now 644; 219 in April.
Most of the infections are due to autochthonous transmission (1,010), of which 986 were contacts of confirmed cases while in 36 individuals the virus was acquired abroad.
The imported cases are due to Cuban travelers, mostly from Russia, followed by the United States, Venezuela and France. Faced with this reality, sustained for weeks and due to the increase in flights from Russia, Dr. Francisco Durán stressed the need to maximize protection during the trip.
