As of 23:59 on April 14, today's infection status 959 newly infected people, 4747 currently positive people, 84114 people who recovered, 487 people who died, 89404 people who were infected
Even in April, the corona infection situation in Cuba does not improve at all.
Meanwhile, the president tweeted a week ago that "Havana must impose stricter regulations." Citizens are paying attention to the announcement of new regulations, but so far there has been no such movement and Havana remains the same. In Cuba, where private cars are not widespread, restrictions on public transportation will cause serious problems in people's lives, but I wonder if strict regulations are necessary to stop the spread of this infection. I think.
As of 23:59 on March 30 Today's infection status 1051 newly infected people, 4169 currently positive people, 70614 people who recovered, 424 people who died, 75263 people who were infected
Yesterday, the number of newly infected people exceeded 1000 today, and today the number of newly infected people per day has reached the highest value since the first person infected with the new coronavirus in Japan last year.・ ・ It seemed that it had settled down little by little in March, but it's a shame.
On the other hand, the inoculation of two vaccines in the final clinical trial stage is proceeding smoothly in Havana and the three states in the east, and Havana is aiming for 1 million people (nearly half of all Havana residents) by the end of May.
As of 23:59 on March 17, today's infection status 689 newly infected people, 3596 people who are currently positive, 60378 people who have recovered, 384 people who have died, 64414 people who have been infected.
From March 14th, Cuba has been in daylight saving time. From the name, it seems that it is only during the summer, but in reality it is about 8 months of daylight saving time until the beginning of November. This week, the weather is like "summer", and the sun is shining all at once, and even in Havana, the maximum daytime temperature exceeds 30 degrees Celsius.
The shining sun, the blue sky and the sea, Cuba as you imagined, I want you to experience it as soon as possible!
As of 23:59 on March 10 Today's infection status 772 newly infected people, 4516 currently positive people, 53450 people who recovered, 357 people who died, 58379 people who were infected
It will be one year since the first coronavirus-infected person was confirmed in Cuba on March 11th tomorrow. Who would have imagined that a year later he was still at the mercy of Corona! After that, the border closed on March 24, the school was closed, and various infection prevention measures taken depending on the situation were successful, and in July there was a day when the number of newly infected people recorded zero, so it remains as it is. The number of infected people increased again from the latter half of August, thinking that it would be settled. After the second peak of infection from September to October, when the airport in Havana was reopened on November 15 and the border closure was lifted, the number of infected people increased in the meantime, regardless of whether it was due to the introduction of infection from overseas. .. Since January, the number of newly infected people has exceeded 1000 on several days, and there are still no signs of a decrease.
Meanwhile, we received news that the Cuban domestic vaccine has advanced to the final clinical trial stage and trial inoculation in Havana has begun. The first Latin American vaccine approval has received a lot of attention from neighboring countries!
As of 23:59 on March 3, today's infection status 914 new infections, 4486 positives, 47626 recoverers, 333 deaths, 52501 infected
It's March. Perhaps the "Winter in Cuba" is about to end, the daytime temperature has risen to about 30 degrees Celsius and the sunshine has become stronger over the past few days. The sky is forever blue and the sea is calm.
The good thing about the influence of the corona is that the progress of environmental pollution has slowed down because of the restricted movement of people. The city of Havana is also very beautiful with less garbage on the roadside! This is what I want this to always be, regardless of Corona.
As of 23:59 on February 24 Today's infection status 670 newly infected people, 4389 currently positive people, 42809 people who recovered, 312 people who died, 47566 people who were infected
It seems that the number of people infected with the new corona virus in Cuba is gradually decreasing. However, of course, you must be careful, and you must take preventive measures.
By the way, the procedure and precautions for foreigners to undergo a PCR test at the time of departure.
1. If you are staying at a hotel, check with your resident medical staff, otherwise check with your local clinic (Polyclinic) for an institution that can perform PCR tests.
2. Schedule an inspection. If you need an English certificate, be sure to let us know in advance.
3. Pay the inspection fee 30 USD in advance.
Payment is by credit card (Visa, Masters) only. Cash payment is not possible.
This credit card payment is a bit tricky. Card payments are not yet widespread in Cuba, and card-enabled machines may be out of order or the card may not be available due to lack of network. In that case, this time we will inform you of the payment by e-mail, ask you to send a link for payment, and take measures to make a card payment from the designated site.
It seems that cash will not be received stubbornly, so please prepare a card that can be used in Cuba!
[Rio de Janeiro Fish Market]
"San Pedro Fish Market" in Niterói, next to Rio de Janeiro
It's a hidden lunch and sightseeing spot that tourists also visit.
Many restaurants in Rio de Janeiro also buy fish from here.
When you come to Rio, be sure to visit Niterói!
[State of Copacabana Beach]
Rio de Janeiro was on a carnival vacation without a parade.
The occupancy rate of the hotel was about half of the average year, there were few tourists, and there was no parade, so the atmosphere was quiet, but the weather was fine and I was able to spend a relaxing time.
As of 23:59 on February 16 Today's infection status 937 newly infected people, 4895 currently positive people, 34716 people who recovered, 274 people who died, 39941 people who were infected
Although it was the second half of February, the situation of corona infection in Cuba has not improved ... No new regulatory measures have been imposed since February 6, but the number of Havana citizens has not decreased. Perhaps they have become aware of taking preventive measures as much as possible, and recently, the intervals between "processions" have been tight, and the number of passengers on the bus seems to be severely restricted.
It's been almost a year since the first person infected with the new coronavirus was confirmed in Cuba, but in the future, I'm tired of corona, and I'd like to be more aware of how each person will become aware of it and coexist with it without getting used to it. It may have to be done.
As of 23:59 on February 9, today's infection status 850 newly infected people, 4943 currently positive people, 29674 recovered people, 249 dead people, 34922 infected people
From February 6th, quarantine measures will be taken at designated facilities for all immigrants. Foreign travelers cannot move from the airport to a hotel designated as an isolation facility in each city, wait, and go out until the PCR test conducted on the 5th day is negative. Presentation of a negative PCR test certificate performed within 72 hours before arrival in Cuba at the airport, the first PCR test will continue.
Also, in Havana, shopping outside the residential area is prohibited except for some stores in order to restrict the movement of citizens from today. Unfortunately, the situation doesn't improve ...
By the way, vaccination has not started yet in Cuba, but two kinds of domestic vaccines are in the final clinical trial stage. It seems difficult to start vaccination in February, but it is said that vaccination can be started in March, so let's expect it.
[Samba team / Sargueiro practice scene]
Unfortunately, this year's carnival has been canceled, but we usually hold public practice every Saturday about four months before the actual performance to showcase the results of our daily practice.
The funds obtained from the admission fee, food and drink charges in the venue, sales of goods, etc. will be important funds for the team's activities, so you will naturally get into the practice and show the dance and performance just like the actual performance!
If you want to come to the carnival but can't, don't worry, there are places in Rio where you can enjoy the carnival atmosphere outside of the actual time!
