The hospital discharges of patients fully recovered from Covid-19 in Cuba is in accordance with what has been previously planned, and for this reason, the country is carefully taking measures, Jose Angel Portal, minister of Public Health, said.

When answering some questions related to the behavior of hospital discharges, Portal detailed that 90% of Covid-19 confirmed cases do not exceed 14 days or are below that period.

27 patients have to date returned to their homes after a favorable recovery of the disease, in a process in which, Portal insisted, 'there is no rush, we must be sure about it and test them afresh so that patients be discharged fully recovered.'

All people discharged are under close surveillance at home, with movement restriction and under daily medical supervision, for 14 days after their hospital discharge.

After two weeks, which would be a month after the beginning of symptoms, they are tested again and then they are definitely discharged.

1.732 patients are admitted in Cuba for clinical-epidemiological surveillance. 9,414 are currently under observation at home.
