The municipality has been free from positive or suspicious cases so far.
She also said that the local defense zone, the Federation of Cuban women and especially the Rondeler Fernandez community house support their broadcasting efforts.
In their work they also visit people who are, under the current circumstances, afraid or stressed. And they advise them to strictly follow the rules oriented by the Ministry of Public Health as the only one efficient vaccine so far.
The Cuban medical and scientific staff is making tremendous efforts to find a cure against this invisible enemy, she faithfully ended.
