Cuba at world’s forefront against Covid-19, President Diaz-Canel says

Havana, Mar 11 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Díaz-Canel noted that Cuba is at the world's forefront of the fight against and control of Covid-19, two years after the first positive cases were reported in the country on Friday.

On his Twitter account, the president described the results achieved during this period as an “indisputable merit of the healthcare system in alliance with science.”

In light of the presence of the coronavirus in Cuba, the head of State favored integrated management by the Government, the Ministry of Public Health and other stakeholders, and even created a scientific working group.

The established medical protocols and the actions implemented saved thousands of lives, while Cuba sent 57 medical cooperation brigades to 41 territories in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa and Europe.

Renowned figures and national and international media have recognized the role of Cuban researchers and biopharmaceutical industry in the conception of five vaccine candidates, three of which became vaccines and two others are being developed.

In addition, the healthcare sector successfully launched the largest vaccination campaign undertaken by the country, which placed Cubans in better conditions to face the disease.

Cuba reports a Covid-19 lethality of 0.79 percent, well below the world’s 1.34 and the Americas’s 1.78, according to a comparison of the data from the Ministry of Public Health.
