At his morning press briefing at the National Palace, in which he spoke about his visit to Guatemala, el Salvador, Honduras, Belize and Cuba, he said that in the latter country they signed a cooperation agreement that basically includes health care, educating primary care physicians and specialists as they will grant scholarships with that purpose.

He also said they will acquire a vaccine that Cuba is producing for very little children, which has had good results.

He clarified that this is a vaccination plan for little children, basically against Covid-19 in the first place, but, on Tuesday, more thorough information about these vaccines for children will be provided and if it is possible to have them all immunized by August because the decision has already been made.

He added that they will also hire Cuban doctors to work in Mexico. This decision was made because they do not have the doctors they need here given public health care was neglected in the neoliberal period, and it was treated as a merchandise and no doctors were trained, so they have a high deficit now.

Mexico has hospitals, but no pediatricians, for example, especially in remote areas because Mexican doctors do not want to work in those places.
