The Cuban government is permitting areas with lower number of COVID-19 cases to open shopping centres and beaches.
The government has been planning to ease the restrictions to prepare for the high tourist season. This restriction uplift is beneficial for overcoming the terrible financial crisis.
The government is allowing more flights to the country, and they will be accepting COVID-19 vaccination certificates and PCR test reports from November.
Health officials said in the past month, the high numbers of COVID-19 cases have been lowering in recent weeks. The officials claimed that they had vaccinated 90 percent of the island’s population which is the reason for a decrease in covid cases.
At the starting of the vaccination campaign in Havana, they had vaccinated about 86.5 percent of the 2.2 million living in that area.
The government had listed 533 businesses on the island that could open. This list includes 315 restaurants. To date, only deliveries were open and allowed.
