These comments were made yesterday, June 17, during the daily meeting of the COVID-19 prevention and control task force, which the President and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz lead, every afternoon, with all governors and the superintendent of the Isle of Youth special municipality via video conference. The agenda was focused on implementation of the first phase of the recovery period beginning today, June 18, in 13 provinces and the Isle of Youth.

Faced with the new challenges of this stage, President Díaz-Canel insisted that the priority of saving lives must not be forgotten, saying, “Everything we do in this new phase is also directed toward this, as our number one priority.”

As essential elements that must be maintained at all times, he stressed the need to continue encouraging responsible behavior and physical distancing, which must become a daily habit.

Likewise the public health system must maintain control and precise monitoring of each case identified, and continue active surveys in communities, using effective approaches developed within the country.
