Corona infection status as of January 10, 2022 23:59: Newly infected 2,685, Current positive 11,136, Cumulative infected 982,614, Cumulative recovery 963,091, Cumulative deaths 8,330

I would like you to take good care of infection prevention and enjoy your holiday in Cuba.

It seems that there are some places in Corona that have started selling sushi as convenient for delivery and take-out, so sushi and Japanese food boom may come in Cuba in the future ...
