Posted By : Havana60/ 12279 5

The Cuban Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) has quarantined a total of 373 people, of whom 145 are tourists and the rest locals, in order to prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus in Cuba.


Despite the fact that none of them have been positive for the Covid-19 test, specialists keep them in constant observation since some of these present symptoms very similar to those caused by the disease of the new coronavirus.


Those in quarantine also include people who had direct contact with the first coronavirus-infected patients.


For its part, the MINSAP has declared that it is prepared to deal with the disease since they have a very powerful antiviral that has been used previously in China and in Spain with good results, it is Interferon Alpha 2B.

    If Italians want help from Cuba for this Virus, then surely Cuba should request help with provisions from Italy. They are struggling with basic food and fuel, even paracetamol, so how about, you scratch my back and i’ll scratch yours xxx

    Every country who has participated in the embargo against Cuba should be embarrassed and ashamed. You have been no less than cruel to a loving population. One that would accept a ship that everyone else turned away.
