Havana will enter this Friday in the first phase of the post-COVID-19 recovery, with which all the Cuban territories will have begun the gradual return to normality.

The island’s authorities also decreed the passage of the rest of the provinces to the second phase of the de-escalation, also starting this Friday, with the exception of Matanzas, which will do so next week.

Even though the capital maintains the majority of the country’s active cases, it is showing progress in dealing with the disease, according to the Cuban government’s consideration, announced this Wednesday afternoon by Prime Minister Manuel Marrero.

As pointed out by Marrero, who is quoted by official media, “the established health indicators have been generally met for seven days, even though some daily cases are reported, an issue that is part of this process.”

However, in the opinion of the Cuban government, Havana “will continue to be the place where the greatest risks are concentrated, which is why Havana residents should enter this new stage with great responsibility and caution, strictly complying with the established sanitary measures.”
