Cuba is shutting schools as Covid-19 surges

1 月 13, 2021World News

Facing a surge in Covid-19 cases, Cuban officials Tuesday night said they are implementing new restrictions, including shutting schools in much of the capital Havana and other parts of the island.

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.

For much of the pandemic Cuba had managed the outbreak more effectively than many other countries in the region but since reopening borders in late 2019, the communist-run island has seen a sharp increase in infections.

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