During her virtual speech, Anayansi Rodríguez said the US economic, commercial and financial blockade was tightened to unprecedented levels even amid complex situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

She pointed out that this Washington policy makes deficiencies and deprivations for Cuban families even worse, and hinders the country’s efforts to make headway to sustainable development.

Likewise, she reaffirmed Cuba’s decision on continuing its international health cooperation that is inherent to the humanistic nature of the political, economic and social project the country defends.

The challenging reality imposed by the US blockade has not prevented Cuba´s contribution to the efforts to mitigate the pandemic, sending 57 medical brigades to 40 countries including 17 ACS member states and five associates, she pointed out.

She highlighted that Cuban scientists´ efforts have allowed the country to have five vaccine candidates to immunize against Covid-19, two of them in phase III of clinical trials.
