Rojas, a Bribri indigenous person from Salitre, in Buenos Aires de Puntarenas, and one of the 10 members of native peoples from Costa Rica graduated of Medicine in Cuba, said that he is very happy and highly motivated over Cuba’s recent breakthroughs.
“From here, we have to acknowledge the huge effort made, not only by the Cuban government, but also its people, because we are living a historic epidemiological moment posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, and this is not a simple thing to face,” Rojas, also a general surgeon graduated in Cuba in 2011, said.
In the world, a number of nations have faced a common problem differently, and that has taken us to where we stand today, he added.
