WHO thanks Cuba’s concern in fight against Covid-19

Bern, Aug 25 (Prensa Latina) Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, on Wednesday thanked Cuba for its concern in the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

After a meeting between the high-ranking WHO official and Cuba’s permanent representative at the UN agencies in Geneva, Juan Antonio Quintanilla, Cuba’s investment in the development of its health system to curb Covid-19 was noted.

According to a Ghebreyesus tweet, at the meeting he also expressed to Quintanilla the acknowledgement of Cuba’s concern for the development of its own vaccine production capacities against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, the cause of this pandemic.

Cuba already has the Abdala, Soberana 02 and Soberana Plus vaccines, registered with authorization for their emergency use on a massive scale in the population.

So far, 5,098,998,000 Cubans have received at least a first shot of one of the country’s own immunizers, which represents 45.4 percent of the national population, an indicator of 32.9 percent at the international level.
