National and International news, with an update of COVID-19 epidemic in Cuba and around the world. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel warned Wednesday about the challenges resulting from new local COVID-19 transmission events reported in western provinces and urged institutions and citizens not to allow a reversal in the progress made on the island against the pandemic. Speaking at the Temporary Group's daily meeting to fight the pandemic, the head of state noted that the recent spike of cases had been extended in time. "If we don't control this situation well, if we don't return to the favorable situation we had, we are compromising people's lives and health, and on the other hand, we are also compromising things as serious as the beginning of the school year, especially in the two provinces that are more complicated".
