COVID-19 incidence rate increases

In the last two weeks, Las Tunas confirmed 106 positive patients for COVID-19 and 95 of them, autochthonous, for an incidence rate of 17.8 per 100,000 inhabitants. The municipalities above that indicator are Las Tunas, Majibacoa, Manatí, and Jobabo.

COVID-19 outbreak at the Majibacoa sugar mill

After several months of stalking and taking advantage of its invisibility qualities, the COVID-19 found a way to sneak into the Majibacoa sugar mill through the machining and manufacturing areas.

Today, there is the worst scenario since the first case was diagnosed in Las Tunas.

Not a few are concerned when in one day Las Tunas exceeds 10 positive patients for COVID-19; contrary to what happens if there are few confirmed. This could seem logical if it only influenced the emotional sphere, and not the attitude of many people who choose to relax compliance with the new codes of life, imposed by the SARS-CoV-2.

The rigor in the active health inquiry is one of the measures applied in Las Tunas.

In face of the increase in people infected with COVID-19 in this city in the last 15 days, the Temporary Working Group to confront the pandemic in Las Tunas approved new measures that begin to be applied this Monday.
