The National Congress of Honduras (unicameral parliament) will soon deliver the honorary order Cruz de Comendador to the Cuban medical brigade that since mid-April has been providing services in the fight against Covid-19 in this Central American country.

Honduran health authorities confirmed that brigade number 21 of the internationalist contingent Henry Reeve to date has served the population in 19 municipalities.

Due to the circumstances marked by the global epidemic of the new coronavirus, the Legislative’s decoration will be delivered in a virtual solemn act to the ambassador of the Caribbean island, Francisco Emilio Delgado, and the head of the brigade, Dr. Blanca Toymil.

Local media outlets indicate that Cuban health professionals have already visited some 12,500 Honduran homes in preventive work and health education.

The brigade that arrived on April 19 at the San Pedro Sula airport, the country’s industrial capital, is made up of a dozen nurses specialized in intensive care, and four doctors divided equally between general and clinical medicine, an epidemiologist, the head of the brigade and a logistician.

The Honduran Congress unanimously approved after a single debate the proposal of the Left Party Libertad y Refundación (Libre).
