Cuba reports 824 new cases of COVID-19 and three deaths

At the end of this Tuesday, February 17, Cuba reported 824 new cases of COVID-19 and three deaths, as reported this Wednesday by Dr. Francisco Duran Garcia, national director of Epidemiology of the Ministry of Public Health (Minsap).

A total of 18,233 patients were admitted for clinical epidemiological surveillance, 3,055 suspected, 10,070 under surveillance, and 5,108 confirmed active.

For COVID-19, 16,134 samples were studied, resulting in 824 positive. The country accumulates 2,193,351 samples taken and 40,765 positive (1.86%).

Duran Garcia highlighted how, based on the study of a group of experts that included statisticians and mathematicians, the need to go urgently to the slightest symptom of the disease is validated in a more forceful way, taking into account the evolution time in days of the patients since November 15, that is, the period between when a person begins with symptoms, and the care and diagnosis by the Public Health system.
