WHO says worried about COVID-19 spikes in Cuba and other Caribbean states

BRASILIA, Oct 7 (Reuters) - The World Health Organization is concerned about spikes in COVID-19 cases spikes in countries that had managed outbreaks effectively, such as Cuba and Jamaica, and 11 Caribbean states that have moved from moderate to intense transmission, its regional director Carissa Etienne said on Wednesday.

The good news is that rates of severe COVID-19 cases have fallen across the Americas and fewer people are being hospitalized needing intensive care, she said in a virtual briefing from Washington with other Pan American Health Organization directors. (Reporting by Anthony Boadle)
