Cuba is ready to confront tropical storm Elsa, under the special conditions created by the epidemic, and prepared to rapidly begin recovery work, stated First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee and President of the Republic Miguel Diaz-Canel yesterday, during a joint meeting of the government COVID-19 task force and the National Defense Council’s socio-economic authority.

At this point, damages reported are concentrated in agriculture, especially in the province of Granma, the President tweeted and called on the population to stay in safe locations, to avoid any loss of human life, noting, “Discipline is key to overcoming this situation with the least possible harm.”

He likewise emphasized the professional work of the Meteorology Institute and thanked the press for keeping the population well informed, adding, “Our country rises to the occasion before adversity.”

Elsa is projected to make landfall between Cienfuegos and the Zapata Peninsula, around noon today, July 5, crossing the island to enter the Gulf of Mexico along the northern coast between the provinces of Matanzas and Artemisa this evening, according to Dr. José Rubiera.
