In the National Prison Hospital (HNR) of Combined del Este prison in
Havana, there are 15 confirmed cases of cholera, according to the inmate
Daniel Perez Diaz, who is admitted there.
According to Perez Diaz, on 2 September there were 15 confirmed cases
receiving hospital care in the HNR. In the intensive care ward there are
twelve inmates in serious condition
Patients with different pathologies admitted to the intensive care ward
of HNR, were transferred to open rooms without considering the risks of
contagion that this could bring. The responsibility for this was the
decision of the Ministry of Interior major Dr. Alexis.

On day 2, while Dr. Alexis visited, he stopped at the bed of inmate
Daniel Perez Diaz and told him he was not interested in his cure, he
announced he would not give permission for any other facility to treat
him, calling him “counterrevolutionary” and threatening him with
beatings for furnishing information to those he called “cheap journalists.”
