In the national language, the daily published an interview with Cuba’s Ambassador to Bangkok Hector Conde on the strategies and measures adopted by the Cuban government to protect its population from the lethal disease.

‘Having a universal and free public healthcare system, as well as its own scientific and biopharmaceutical development programs, has allowed our country to fight against the pandemic with positive results,’ he pointed out.

Matichon referred that since the onset of the pandemic, 57 Cuban medical brigades, with almost 5,000 members, went to 40 nations and territories, a figure that increases to 76, he set out, adding those Cuban doctors who were already present in several countries.
