Duran assured that since the beginning of the pandemic Cuban prisons have been under a surveillance system, in order to control any virus outbreak.
Authorities have also implemented visitation and movement restrictions, which contributed to “none confirmed cases in either inmates or workers, much fewer transmission events."
“There is a surveillance system in where inmates, prison personnel, and visitors get tested,” Duran explained. “It is a system that works very closely with the Ministry of the Interior’s (MININT) medical services and prisons’ Directive Boards".
