Cuba’s breakthroughs amid the Covid-19 pandemic highlighted in Canada

Ottawa, May 21 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Ambassador to Canada Josefina Vidal highlighted her country´s breakthroughs to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, and is already developing health interventions to immunize its population, the Cuban diplomat said in an interview with People's Voice, the official newspaper of the Communist Party of Canada.

Vidal also referred to multiple challenges Cuba is presently facing up due to the negative impact of the blockade imposed by the United States.

She also detailed on the strategies and actions taken by the Cuban government to mitigate Covid-19´s effects, such as the development of five vaccine candidates and the progress of health intervention to immunize its people.

As a result of this latest action, nearly half a million Cubans have been vaccinated to date, she stressed.

She thanked the Canadian Network of Solidarity with Cuba for the campaigns recently organized to send nearly two million syringes and needles to Cuba in order to contribute to vaccinating its people against Covid-19.
