Covid-19: Cuban sports events with international participation postponed

Eventos inderAmong efforts to prevent and confront Covid-19, the National Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation (Inder) has decided to postpone events with international participation scheduled in Cuba until at least April 30.

The measure, which joins others adopted by the Cuban Spoprts Institute, includes the Giraldilla badminton tournament (March 13-17), the Cuba-Australia Rugby Friendship Cup (March 20-27), a FIFA match against Nicaragua (March 25), the Varadero Half-Marathon (March 29) and the Caribbean Table Tennis Tournament (April 2-8).

Inder has also limited, as much as possible, the number of delegations traveling abroad, focusing on events directly linked to the Olympic and Paralympic qualification processes, as long as they are supported by their respective international federations and conditions in the host nation are favorable.

Likewise, health discussions and training sessions have been increased, with emphasis on schools and other centers where athletes of all categories study, train and/or compete, while careful monitoring to identify individuals with respiratory symptoms was stressed.

The work coordinated by the Sports Medicine Institute with public health authorities ensures rigorous follow-up on these and other measures, while maintaining contact with collaborators and athletes abroad, including those contracted by other federations, with no positive cases of Covid-19 reported, to date.
