HAVANA, Jan. 19 (Xinhua) -- Cuba reported on Tuesday 330 new COVID-19 cases and two deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the national caseload to 18,773 and the nationwide death toll to 175, according to the Ministry of Public Health.

Of the new infections, only nine were imported cases, the lowest number in 15 days, which corresponds to the restrictive measures for foreign entry into the country put in place at the beginning of the year.

The remaining 321 native cases were mainly reported in four areas with high rates of infection, namely Havana, Matanzas, Santiago de Cuba and Guantanamo.

So far in January, Cuba has registered 29 deaths from COVID-19, the second highest number in a month since the outbreak of the pandemic, after April 2020, in which 55 deaths were recorded.
