It is not surprising, it added, that Cuba has great results compared to the US, taking into account the fundamental differences in the structure and organization of the health systems.

Cuba’s epidemiological breakthroughs are also influenced by its political philosophy and culture, the source pointed out.

Cuba, according to the American Journal of Public Health, has had a more coordinated and comprehensive response to Covid-19, which has led to significantly better results than the United States.

Until July 15, 2021, the cumulative rate of cases in the US is more than four times higher than that of Cuba, whereas the mortality rate and excess mortality rate are approximately 12 times higher in the United States, the source noted.

Cuba has the lowest Covid-19 death rate in Latin America, with 0.9 percent, according to the Pan American Health Organization.

It also ranks first in Latin America and second in the world regarding immunization against the coronavirus, only surpassed by the United Arab Emirates, according to the digital site Our World in Data.
