Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Saturday rejected the indiscipline and negligence in the confrontation of Covid-19 in the country, which reported an uptick in new cases in the last week.
In his official Twitter account, the dignitary acknowledged the nation's efforts in the fight against the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in the face of irresponsible attitudes.
"To think that indiscipline and negligence of all kinds can be committed, because in Cuba the fight to the death has been won, is an irresponsible and selfish thought," the head of state wrote.
According to figures from the Ministry of Public Health, the total number of confirmed cases in the Caribbean nation rose to 2,888 after 59 new cases.
The epidemiological situation prompted the rollback of Havana to the phase of indigenous transmission as of Saturday, with six events in the municipalities of Habana del Este, La Lisa, and Marianao.
In the most recent meeting to analyze the country's epidemiological situation, the president described that the setback implied a great sacrifice for state institutions, the private sector, and citizens in general.
Diaz-Canel recalled the economic effort that the epidemiological scenario represents in the context of the global crisis and the pressures caused by the U.S. blockade of the island in the current circumstances.
