In Cuba there are a total of 435 hospitalized people due to the coronavirus, of which 213 are suspects. Another 1,501 are under primary healthcare surveillance in their homes.
As for the 10 new cases, these were detected after performing 2,135 diagnostic tests and all are Cuban.
Of these, six (60%) were contacts of confirmed cases, in three (30%) the source of the infection is not specified and one (10%) is a traveler who returned from Mexico days ago and was in quarantine, according to the control strategy of the Cuban government.
Half of the new positive cases were men and the other half were women, while the most affected age group was 40 to 60 years, with eight (80.0%). This same figure (8) corresponds to that of asymptomatic patients.
By provinces, Havana continues to carry the weight, with nine of the 10 newly infected. The tenth case is that of the traveler arriving from Mexico, whose province of residence is Camagüey, although since she was isolated on her return, it does not affect the statistics of that province, which remains without detected transmissions in recent weeks.
