PATRICK OPPMANN, CNN: I'm Patrick Oppmann in Havana, where COVID cases and deaths have surged here despite the Cuban government's claims that they've done a good job handling the pandemic. Certainly, it does not help that the historic protests and pro-government demonstrations have taken place over the last few weeks. The government has actually arrested some protesters, saying that they violated covid protocols but then held their own large pro-government demonstrations to show that the support of the people is still with them. The government is vaccinating here with their own vaccines, but it will likely be weeks or months more before we see a dip in the COVID numbers.
