The Cuban doctors make the difference: zero deaths from COVID-19 over the last week.
Cuba completed seven consecutive days on Wednesday without registering a death caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which maintains the number of deaths at 79 in a 12-million inhabitants country that has registered only 1,900 COVID-19 cases so far.
The Health Ministry Epidemiology director Francisco Duran explained that Wednesday's cases were detected by analyzing 1,732 PCR samples applied the previous day.
In this Caribbean island, two patients remain in critical condition, six are in serious condition, 286 evolve without complications, 817 people at risk are inside health centers, and 1,889 remain under clinical-epidemiological surveillance in primary care.
Cuba has applied preventive measures such as the suspension of public transport and the closure of borders, schools, and shopping centers.
