As of 23:59 on November 19th Today's infection status 38 newly infected people (20 of whom are foreign travelers including Cubans), 363 people who are currently positive, 7267 people who have recovered, and 131 people who have died. Total number of infected people, 7763

The airport in Havana reopened on November 15th, and although the number of flights is still small, international flights are arriving in Havana. I haven't seen foreign tourists in Havana yet, but it seems that tourists spending time at all-inclusive hotels at beach resorts such as Varadero are gradually returning.
Meanwhile, I did an old city tour for the first time in a long time!
However, it is intended for people who are on the other side of the smartphone screen, assuming an online tour, not for customers. It was a trial tour to see how much we could do in Cuba, where the internet environment is bad.
As a result ... The connection was unexpectedly good, and I was able to watch the video almost without interruption after a short walk through the old town for an hour. In the future, there is a high possibility that an online tour from Cuba will be realized by recruiting customers!

Since the reopening of Habana Airport, I am worried that the number of new infections brought in from overseas has increased.
By the way, November is just around the corner, and Christmas is less than a month away. It is said that Cuba was a former Spanish colony and has many Catholics, but compared to other Latin American countries, it is less religious and it is hard to realize that Catholic customs are pervading our lives. There is none.
Christmas is not exciting as evidence ...
Recently, the decoration of hotels and restaurants has become more flashy for tourists, but it does not make you feel like Christmas. This year, when there are no tourists due to the influence of the corona, it is likely to be more lonely.
The photo stands out among the restaurants in Old Havana, with few shops still open.

It was announced that Jose Martí Havana International Airport will reopen at midnight on November 15th. Airports with other international flights have already reopened, but the reopening of the airport in Havana, the capital, will truly mean "unclosed borders" and will resume full-scale acceptance of foreign tourists.
All passengers arriving from overseas are obliged to perform a PCR test in addition to a health check such as body temperature measurement at the time of entry. The test results will be notified within 24 hours. The policy is to manage the health of tourists during their stay by making full use of Cuba's unique medical system.
It will be difficult to travel in exactly the same way as before, but the day when you can enjoy your trip to Cuba while taking preventive measures against corona infection is approaching little by little!

Hurricane Eta, which caused great damage to Central America such as Nicaragua and Honduras last week, became a tropical depression from the 7th to the 8th of the weekend and traversed the central region of Cuba. Despite weakening, some areas were hit by storms. Disaster prevention in Cuba takes thorough precautions. We will endeavor to minimize damage by evacuating dangerous areas and vulnerable people, suspending transportation, and closing schools in advance. As a result of taking such measures this time as well, although there were power outages and inundation damage, no human damage has occurred so far.
On the morning of the 8th, Eta, who passed through the northern coast of Cuba, changed course to the west and proceeded off the northern coast of Cuba, and continued to be vigilant on the 9th, but in Havana it is a relatively calm morning due to the sunlight.
Even so, this eta is zigzag wandering west to east and west again. There is something like this ...
