The legislator for the department of Cortés tweeted affirming that there is a proposal from the Cuban embassy in Tegucigalpa for the acquisition of the Soberana 02 vaccine once it has been certified and available for other countries.
Arriaga asked the Ministry of Health of the Honduran government why they refuse to have an approach to the issue of the acquisition of the Cuban vaccine.
She also invited the health authorities to at least pay attention to the scientific research carried out by Cuba in the field of biotechnology.
The parliamentarian herself criticized last week on Twitter the management by the government of Catracho, which so far has vaccinated against Covid-19 less than 0.1 percent of its population, making it the most backward in Central America in this matter.
On May 6th, the deputy for Libre presented before the National Congress (parliament) a bill for the urgent acquisition of the Soberana 02 Covid-19 vaccine (still a candidate).
The initiative explains that it is aimed at instructing that power of the Honduran State, through the Health Commission and with strict oversight of civil society to begin the negotiation process with the government of Cuba in order to acquire in due time the vaccine.
