The discreet decrease in positive patients for Covid-19 marks a downward trend in Matanzas, a province that works incessantly to reverse the difficult epidemiological situation of recent days.

Today the main viral load is found in the south-central zone of Matanzas territory, places in which they direct sanitary processes with a view to cutting transmission and reducing mortality.

In the last meeting of the Temporary Working Group, Tania Margarita Cruz, Vice Minister of Public Health in Cuba explained that the medical discharge of patients must be dependent on each clinical picture even with the negative antigen test.

If people maintain symptoms they cannot return home, for this, centers are set up where they will receive adequate care with the required medications, said the deputy minister.

Among the main dissatisfactions of the Matanzas population is the non-existence of antigen tests in certain communities and difficulties in medical care in isolation centers.

Liván Izquierdo Alonso, first secretary of the Cuban Communist Party (PCC) in the province, referred to deficiencies that still hinder the march towards the new normal.
