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
Until the beginning of December, the number of newly infected people was kept below 100 per day, but it has increased day by day since the latter half of December, and by the beginning of the year it has exceeded 2000 in a blink of an eye. Cuba is in tune with global movements. Even so, the year-end and New Year holidays are the time when Cuba has the most tourists, so I saw many foreigners in Havana. I would like you to take good care of infection prevention and enjoy your holiday in Cuba.

[Online] Live commentary on Old Havana by Tomoko, a local guide who has been in Cuba for more than 10 years.
Corona infection status as of December 9, 2021 23:59: 65 newly infected persons, 384 currently positive persons, 963,493 cumulative infected persons, 954,741 cumulative recoverers, 8,311 cumulative deaths
The number of newly infected coronas has decreased steadily, and now there are less than 100 newly infected people nationwide every day. It looks completely calm. It's been almost a month since we started accepting tourists from overseas, and although it's not as busy as it used to be, we can now see foreign tourists in the city of Havana. Schools have resumed classroom lessons, sports activities, various events, etc. have been resumed while taking infection prevention measures, and Cuban people are accepting "new daily life".
Corona infection status as of 23:59 on November 4, 2021: 606 newly infected persons, 3,057 currently positive persons, 954,948 cumulative infected persons, 943,755 cumulative recoverers, 8,257 cumulative deaths
In Havana, it has already been possible to eat and drink in the restaurant for more than a month, and on weekends it is crowded with many people. Infection prevention measures must be taken, such as introducing a reservation system and limiting the number of people in the store, but I feel that being able to enjoy eating out is a big step closer to "everyday". To do.
For eating out after a long time, choose Japanese food, which is still rare in Cuba! I went to the restaurant "Jíbaro Hibaro" in the old town, which recently started sushi service on Sunday. Regardless of the taste (after all, sushi is important for sushi, rice is not good ...), I have the impression that I am doing my best while it is difficult to procure ingredients due to lack of supplies. 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 ...

Corona infection status as of 23:59 on October 24, 2021: 1,210 newly infected persons (79 Havana), 5,761 currently positive persons, 946,960 cumulative infected persons, 932,951 cumulative recoverers, 8,191 cumulative deaths
It's been less than a month until November 15th, when the Cuban border reopens. On October 19, the conditions for entry were officially announced, and many restrictions imposed on the two major cities of Havana, the capital, and Santiago de Cuba, the center of the east, were lifted and the transition to a "new daily life" was made. I am. After November 7th, when entering Cuba ...

From the latter half of September, the decreasing trend of infection became clear in the numbers, and in October, the number of newly infected people in the last five days has been decreasing day by day. Along with this, regulations will be gradually relaxed from states such as Havana where the number of infected people per population has fallen below the standard value, and Havana will resume business with in-store eating and drinking such as cafeterias and restaurants from the other day, public at night. Transportation has been extended until 10:30, and you can go out until the same time. And from last week, the ban on the beach and pool will be lifted! On weekends, I also noticed that I went out with my family.
Corona infection status as of 23:59 on September 22, 2021: 6,935 newly infected persons (458 Havana), 39,377 currently positive persons, 832,286 cumulative infected persons, 785,804 cumulative recoverers, 7,048 cumulative deaths
Vaccination of minors began in September. Intensive vaccine campaigns for minors between the ages of 2 and 18 are still rare in the world. It also means that the production of domestic vaccines that can be inoculated to all the people has already been completed. (The photo shows the blackboard of the elementary school that was the venue for vaccination, "Vaccination for health and education!")
Corona infection status as of September 16, 2021 23:59: 8,291 newly infected persons (499 Havana), 39,075 currently positive persons, 784,416 cumulative infected persons, 738,608 cumulative recoverers, 6,676 cumulative deaths
Even though it's a corona, on my birthday, I want to get together and have a small party. Cakes, cream, butter cream, and chocolate that are indispensable for Cuban parties are hard to come by, so decorate with plenty of meringue! A sweet cake decorated with various colors of cream is a staple. This is fine, but when I saw the picture of the sophisticated cake posted on SNS, I wanted to eat it asexually ...
Corona infection status as of 23:59 on September 8, 2021: 7,747 newly infected persons (687 Havana), 39,213 currently positive persons, 720,739 cumulative infected persons, 675,413 cumulative recoverers, 6,056 cumulative deaths
Following the government's plan to complete 90% of the population's corona vaccination by November, the Ministry of Tourism will gradually accept foreign tourists on November 15 and gradually open the port. We announced a policy to relax the regulations. First of all, exemption from PCRk test at the airport by presenting a vaccine certificate or PCR negative certificate to foreign tourists in the resort areas of Baradero and Kayo Coco, which are still accepting tourists, normalization of luggage weight restrictions, etc. Will be carried out. In the future, it is expected that specific measures and schedules will be announced for the whole of Cuba.
Corona infection status as of 23:59 on September 1, 2021: 6,208 newly infected persons (717 Havana), 32,909 currently positive persons, 665,672 cumulative infected persons, 627,242 cumulative recoverers, 5,464 cumulative deaths
This week, the number of newly infected people has finally begun to decline. The number is still over 6,000, which is high compared to the population, but I just pray that it will continue to calm down. On the other hand, domestic vaccination of Cuban vaccine has progressed, and in November, a plan to complete 90% of the population was announced. Also, it seems that the procedure will start for international certification.
