Havana, Mar 2 (RHC) -- The application in Havana of the improved protocol for confronting Covid-19 will begin this Tuesday with the home administration of Nasalferon to contacts of positive cases and their relatives.

Nasalferon is a drug from the Cuban biotechnology industry to prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and strengthen the immune system.

The therapy will be administered at home by family doctors and nurses and students of the last years of the Medicine career.

That's according to health officials at Monday's meeting of the Government's Temporary Working Group on the pandemic.

 Public Health Minister José Angel Portal Miranda said that in February, the average number of cases per day was 821.7, increasing for the close of January by 64 %, which had 501.2 cases per day.

The highest transmission rates were in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Guantánamo, Pinar del Río, Mayabeque, and Camagüey, where 84 % of the persons diagnosed during February were concentrated.
