HAVANA TIMES – As the aftermath of the nationwide July 11 protests in Cuba continues in the news and social networks, the Covid-19 situation worsens.  On Thursday a record of new positive cases was registered at 7,784 with 66 deaths in the country of 11.2 million people.

Meanwhile, in recent months the government opened up to sun-and-sea tourists at resorts in Varadero and Cayo Coco for Russians and some Canadians.

    Help in the form of trained medical staff and effective vaccines are less than thirty minutes away-in the United States. Cubans in our US are willing, I think, to do more than they are already doing to help. The block is the communist party of the U.S. called the democrat party.
