As of 23:59 on October 15 Today's infection status 56 newly infected people, 290 currently positive people, 5702 people who recovered, 124 people who died, 6118 people who were infected

Of the newly infected people, 10 are returnees from overseas, and 46 are domestically infected, which is a little high in the past week, but the number of recoverers exceeds the number of newly infected people. Overall, it continues to decline.
From October 19th next week, transportation between the regions, which had been suspended, will start, and it will be possible to travel from Havana across states. There is a concern that people's movements will become more active and lead to the spread of infection again, but this is also a step toward a "new daily life", and each person wants to be careful enough to connect to the post-corona. ..
Expectations for sightseeing in Varadero, Cuba's largest resort area, which started yesterday!

・ Lifting restrictions on the movement of private cars and motorcycles.
・ Lifting restrictions on mobile sales outside the district.
・ Lifting of prohibition on purchases outside the residential area.

-Resumption of public and private commercial and service activities with a capacity of 50%. Excludes privately-sponsored parties that can be in close contact with bars, discos, public and social distances.
・ Beach release. The pool is limited to 30% of capacity and reopened.
・ Resumption of public transportation. Operates from October 3rd with 80% standing boarding.

It is almost the same as when the regulations were first relaxed and moved to Phase 1 in July, but access to Havana from rural areas is still restricted, masks are not worn, lack of discipline in public places, and hoarding of goods. Strict fines will be imposed on resale.
The number of people infected with Havana has decreased to 10 people a day, so I hope that they will continue to calm down and gradually resume their social activities.

A national park in two mountains, the Blue Mountains and John Crow, in the southeastern part of the Jamaican island.
It is known as a gathering place for biodiversity in the Caribbean countries. It was registered as a World Heritage Site in 2015 as a complex heritage of nature and culture because it was once a refuge for the descendants (Maroon) of the fugitive slaves who were forcibly taken from Africa. Blue Mountain is also known for its suitable soil, wind and fog conditions for growing coffee beans. It is said that only the world-famous high-class Blue Mountain coffee, which has passed strict inspection, is exported overseas.
