Pinar del Rio, Cuba - Raul Perez, general director of the National Institute of Hygiene, Epidemiology and Microbiology, said that the most effective method to currently fight Covid-19 is people self-protection.
The population's participation, taking care oneself and taking care others is important because we can do many things but if we do not do this, risk increases, the doctor said in front of a group of experts from the Ministry of Public Health, who is in Cuba's westernmost province to help stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2.
Perez described the situation in this province as complex, with a notable increase of patients with the virus since October 6. Within this complex situation, Consolacion del Sur municipality presents a high risk of the disease and a transmission event was recorded in Guane and its popular councils.
The experts considered correct the implementation of the protocols established by health personnel in Pinar del Rio, where the PCR tests in real-time will increase to determine Covid-19 cases.
During a Provincial Defense Council meeting, authorities informed on Thursday afternoon that Consolacion del Sur town and Guane municipality were going into isolation by quarantine. The provincial government also decreed quarantine for the Isabel Rubio popular council some few days ago.
