In a congratulatory statement on the occasion of Latin American Medicine Day, which is marked on December 3, the government official stressed that the work of Cuban health professionals is part of our history.

It is today, amid the complex scenario that Covid-19 has imposed on us, and it has been in the course of all these years of the Revolution, he added.

Portal underlined that although this daily task naturally comes from our effort to save lives and restore hope to people, a recognition of such dedication, responsibility and commitment to which work is done day by day in the most diverse settings becomes inevitable.

New and difficult challenges have been imposed by Covid-19 in these nearly two years of relentless confrontation with the virus, in which it has been necessary to set priorities among so much urgency, Portal reflected.

Our workers and students have been able to rise to the challenges; behind each of you there are sacrifices that are priceless and may never be known, he emphasized.

Latin American Medicine Day marks the birthday of Cuban scholar Carlos Juan Finlay (1833-1915), who discovered the transmitting agent of yellow fever.
