Regarding today’s cases, all were autochthonous, all correspond to Cubans and all were contacts of confirmed cases.
They were reported by three provinces: Havana (two cases from two municipalities), Sancti Spíritus (two from two municipalities) and Ciego de Ávila (one from the provincial capital).
Another peculiarity is that the new contagions belong to the female gender and that only one of them was asymptomatic at the time of diagnosis.
By age group, two were under 20, and three between 40 and 59.
During the day, 7,066 samples were processed, for a total of 685,018 in the country since the pandemic began. Of that number, 5,948 have been positive.
Active cases fell to 383, and until midnight yesterday 4,775 people remained hospitalized, Dr. Durán explained in his penultimate daily appearance, since as of next week it will have a weekly frequency.
