Salvadoran authority praises Cuba’s achievements in Covid-19 times

San Salvador, Apr 1 (Prensa Latina) Salvadoran Congressperson Eugenio Chicas on Thursday praised Cuba's achievements in the fight against Covid-19, despite the US economic blockade.

Chicas, member of the Central American Parliament, described as ‘exemplary’ Cuba’s contribution to the global cause against the pandemic, both for its fight against the health emergency at national level and for its support to other countries.

‘Cuba, a small and poor country, in spite of the cruel US blockade, sent 57 medical brigades of the Henry Reeve Contingent, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for its selfless work,’ the politician pointed out.

In his usual op-ed piece in the El Mundo newspaper, Chicas recalled Cuba’s solidarity response to emergencies, such as earthquakes, floods and other situations.

The also former government spokesperson valued the humanism of Cuba; in the meantime, pharmaceutical transnationals and the financial system took advantage of the health crisis to make profits and widen social inequalities in the world.

In that regard, he highlighted the Cuban model of public healthcare and its work in epidemiology, despite the fact that the US blockade prevents it from buying supplies or equipment for the care and recovery of patients.
