Health Program during Summer
The ministry's strategy is aimed at reducing risk factors that are typical of those months.
Actions include the prevention of traffic accidents and drowning at beaches, rivers, swimming pools and dams, considering that 100 people drown every year in Cuba.
In addition, authorities will monitor diseases that are transmitted orally or by vectors, acute respiratory infections, viral conjunctivitis and HIV-AIDS.
The experts noted that Cuba's epidemiological situation is stable, as no cases of hemorrhagic conjunctivitis have been reported, and only 29 cases of dengue and nine cases of malaria have been reported.
