Cuban health officials on Tuesday reported 487 new Covid-19 cases, topping the previous record set the day before.

Schools will be shut in 34 municipalities hard hit by the pandemic starting on Thursday, officials said.

Cuba has recorded more than 15,000 coronavirus cases, including 155 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Officials said Tuesday more restrictions would be put into place soon on transportation and commerce.
