Havana, December 7 (RHC)-- The Cuban delegation attending the First Pan American Junior Games reported that after being diagnosed with COVID-19, a member of its athletics team remains in the hotel in Cali for such cases.
The chief medical officer of the Island's mission, Dr. Pablo Castillo, explained that the transfer took place after she tested positive to the antigen test carried out as part of the controls designed for the participants in the competition.
He said that the competitor, protected by the complete vaccination scheme, is asymptomatic and receives excellent attention from the specialized personnel designated by the organizers, in accordance with the protocols approved for the event that concluded last Sunday.
Castillo added that there is a direct dialogue with the athlete's relatives, who must remain in isolation until the result of her PCR is negative.
The director of the Institute of Sports Medicine of Cuba affirmed that another expert of that institution will follow up on the girl's recovery and will return with her to the island once she is discharged from the hospital.
