Havana, Cuba: Not losing the perception of risk among the population is a key element in overcoming this new moment of confrontation with COVID-19 in Cuba, Radio Reloj publishes.

On this premise, which has marked the actions of the country in the course of the last year, the Prime Minister, Manuel Marrero Cruz, made special emphasis on Thursday, when he headed the meeting of the temporary working group for the prevention and control of the new coronavirus.

In confidence, we have already learned it after a year of facing the epidemic, there is one of the greatest dangers, hence the insistence of the Cuban Premier during the meeting to demand more rigorously, by the Cuban authorities, compliance of the established.

In addition, within homes, he considered, it is necessary for people to become more aware and comply with the hygienic-sanitary measures designed with more discipline, since in many places whole families have been infected, as has happened, for example, in several localities of Matanzas.

Precisely due to the increase in the level of transmission in that province and the spread of the disease that is observed there, several of the measures have been reinforced to contain the transmission of the virus.

As detailed by the governor of Matanzas, Mario Sabines Lorenzo, they are working with meticulousness to detect possible patients promptly and not lose an opportunity in their treatment.

Following that purpose, he said, the capacities to care for people who are not yet positive have been expanded and thus avoid further complications in this new outbreak, where the number of confirmed cases has increased considerably. We have also managed to isolate all suspects and contacts where they correspond, he assured.

With 296 controls of active outbreaks, social distancing measures have once again been increased in the territory, establishing quarantines in specific places such as construction camps and work centers, to prevent disease outbreaks from occurring there.

The trend, Sabines Lorenzo said, is not yet towards a decrease in infections, but the isolation and movement restriction measures that have been resumed should contribute to a decrease in the numbers in the coming days.

Together with Havana, Sancti Spíritus and Artemisa, Matanzas is one of the four provinces where the greatest spread of the disease was observed in the last day, while also in it and in the Cuban capital the number of cases more high in the country, according to the Minister of Public Health, José Angel Portal Miranda.

In the same way, he reported that the greatest increase in positive cases in the day of analysis was confirmed in Havana, at the expense of the Arroyo Naranjo municipality, and in Villa Clara, mainly in the provincial capital.

Precisely from the central territory, where 26 new positive patients were reported this Thursday, 10 more than the previous day, Governor Alberto López Díaz explained that 75% of the cases were concentrated in four municipalities: Cifuentes, Ranchuelo, Santa Clara and Manicaragua.

As he assured, a line of work that has been strengthened in the province in a general way is the deepening of epidemiological research, an issue that is being worked on with intensity since it is one of the main keys to contain the spread of the disease.

Another of the territories that maintains a high number of infections is Granma, mainly in its main municipality. The isolation of contacts and suspects, said Governor Francisco Alexis Escribano Cruz, is essential to contain the spread of the virus and in that way containment actions are implemented.

During the meeting, in which the Second Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, José Ramón Machado Ventura, and the Vice President of the Republic, Salvador Valdés Mesa, also took part, the government authorities of Santiago de Cuba, Sancti Spiritus , Cienfuegos, Pinar del Río and Havana, the latter province with the highest numbers of infections and where the epicenter of the transmission of the disease is verified.

Discipline, responsibility and perception of risk continue to be vital in the current epidemiological scenario that the nation is experiencing.
