Castro, Inc. has admitted that four of its slave medics have died. But they have yet to admit the deaths of three others who had been sent to the Cuban colony of Venenozuela.
Meanwhile, the plague continues to intensify in Cuba as insanely foolish tourists flock back to the island’s apartheid beach resorts.
And one of the worst plague hot spots on the island is Ciego de Ávila, the entryway for all tourist flights headed for the beaches of Cayo Coco.
Yet, the usual suspects continue to lure tourists to Castrogonia, with headlines such as “No quarantine, no pre-flight tests – Cuba is your best bet for winter sun.”
Abridged and loosely translated from Marti Noticias:
Cuban authorities confirmed this Thursday the death of four health workers from COVID-19, three nurses and a doctor, sent to other countries as part of the medical brigades.
The deceased “did not belong to the Henry Reeve brigade,” dedicated to combating the pandemic abroad, said Francisco Durán, chief of epidemiology at the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP), without offering further details.
The Cuban government has so far not officially reported the death at the end of last August of three health workers sent to fight the virus in Venezuela: the orthopedic Pedro Antonio Milan Barreiro, 56; the doctor Leonel Rafael Batista Hierrezuelo, 28 years old, and the nurse Yoel Rodríguez, 46 years old.
MINSAP reported 19 new cases of coronavirus this Thursday on the island, for a total of 5,917 infections since the pandemic began.
Most of the cases diagnosed on the day belong to Havana, with 11 positives, five of them in the municipality of Arroyo Naranjo, four in Centro Habana, one in Plaza and one in Marianao.
Sancti Spíritus and Ciego de Ávila, with the highest incidence rate of confirmed cases per 100,000 inhabitants, reported four cases respectively.
4,940 patients remain hospitalized, 735 of them suspected of having the disease, 3,784 confirmed in epidemiological surveillance 421. The death toll remains at 123, according to official figures.
