According to the official, the Cuban doctors will be distributed into 14 municipalities.

The province only has 2 intensive care doctors working on the therapy section, a very ridiculous number in the face of the pandemic.

The chief of the public health provincial department, Yolanda Mote, which did not advance the specialties of the doctors, said such move is of great value, taking into account the experience of the physicians.

By this time, 24 national citizens residing in Malanje returned to the province at the opening of the sanitary fence and are in mandatory home quarantine.

Malanje has a treatment post operating at the health post in the Cahala neighbourhood and an institutional quarantine set up in one of the health units in this city.
