Actions are carried out in Jagüey Grande to stop the transmission of Covid-19 .

The Municipal Defense Council adjusts the actions that are applied throughout  Jagüey Grande territory as part of the Modified Quarantine.

On the last day, the municipality reported 18 positive cases for Covid-19, of them 17 from the town of Jagüey Grande and one from Torriente. Actions are being carried out in Jagüey Grande to stop the transmission of Covid-19. Today there are 142 active cases and focus controls are being carried out on the 29 assets in the territory.

Among these, the disinfection work at the La Estancia beverage and soft drink factory, the Héroes de Girón combination and the Iluminado Rodríguez hospital stand out. The disinfection of the Nelson Fernández isolation center was completed.

In Jagüey Grande, 10 centers were set up for the isolation of contacts of positive and suspected cases of the disease, where more than 330 people are kept.

The municipality’s incidence rate is high, 201.8 per 100,000 inhabitants, which complicates the epidemiological situation caused by SARS-CoV-2 in the different health areas.

Active investigation is prioritized to detect suspicious cases to a greater extent. In the same way, the quality of epidemiological surveys and control of outbreaks should be raised.

The health authorities in the municipality make a call for citizen responsibility, non-violation of health protocols in the workplace and the trust that – with the joint work of all – the siege of the pandemic can be closed.
