Cubans returning home from abroad will be housed in other centers at government expense to await test results.

Diplomats and some categories of foreign businessmen will be allowed to isolate themselves at home.

Cube has recorded 25,674 infections with the new coronavirus and 213 deaths since March.

AIFA has already approved the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. So far, 1.8 million people have received an injection in the country of 60 million. Italy has 2.5 million confirmed cases and more than 88,000 known deaths, the second highest number of deaths in Europe after Britain.
