Cuba has gone nine days without a coronavirus death as of Monday, Dr. Francisco Durán, national director of epidemiology at Cuba’s Ministry for Public Health, said at a news conference.
He also said there were only nine new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.
Over the weekend, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel said the virus was “under control” in Cuba and the government would soon announce measures to gradually reopen the island.
Since the outbreak, Cuban officials have ended nearly all international travel to and from the island, made wearing a face mask in public mandatory and have required everyone ill with the coronavirus to quarantine at government-run hospitals.
Cuba has a total of 2,200 cases of coronavirus and a total of 83 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
