We will have to be eternally grateful to Cuban scientists. In these hard months, and together with our people, Cuban science saved the country. May all today’s tributes be for you, said the also first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in his Twitter account.
He also wished a happy anniversary to the workers in that field: A day to celebrate for everyone: for women and men of Science and for the country where they were born, trained and created, he added.
Since 1990, Cuba celebrates Science Day on January 15, to recognize the work of workers and the country’s achievements in this field, which, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, showed its strengths.
The development and production of its own vaccines and a score of other medicines against this disease, as well as the training of human resources in the area of medical services, have enabled the island to face the health emergency caused by the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes this disease.
The Island has also collaborated with the efforts of more than fifty nations in the fight against Covid-19.
