Fast-spreading SARS-CoV-2 virus infection has had an epidemic regrowth worldwide and also in Cuba.


Examine the work done in "19 de Abril" health area in the care of COVID-19 patients during the regrowth of the disease based on demographic and clinical-epidemiological characteristics versus those of the March-June 2020 outbreak.


A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in "19 de Abril" health area in Havana from July to October 2020. The study universe was the positive COVID-19 cases. Data were obtained from the coronavirus database developed by the Hygiene and Epidemiology Division and from the Statistics Department at "19 de Abril" University Polyclinic.


A total 32 cases were diagnosed, of whom 50% were asymptomatic, 14 (43.7%) female, 17 (53.1%) aged 35-59 years, 18 (56.2%) of white skin color and 20 (62.5%) resided in Plaza People's Council. In comparison with the March-June outbreak, higher percentages were found of asymptomatic male white-skin subjects aged 25-39 years, and cases from Plaza People's Council prevailed.
