Within this encouraging context, most of the country’s territories – except Havana and Mayabeque – began the transition to the third phase of the first stage of recovery, and President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez called for continuing to tirelessly and meticulously implement measures to maintain control of the epidemic.
During the afternoon meeting of the prevention and control task force , led by Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz and the President – emphasized was the importance of carefully monitoring the de-escalation of restrictions underway, given the occurrence of new, very serious outbreaks around the world following relaxation of preventative measures.
The President recalled that Sunday, July 20, saw a new record of cases internationally, clear evidence that the disease is not controlled and has not reached its worst moment, thus the importance of not letting our guard down.
