Cuba’s ambassador reiterates his country’s will to help others

Copenhagen, June 15 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s ambassador to Denmark, Roger Lopez, reiterated on Monday his country’s will to help nations in need in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

During an online discussion with members of the Dano-Cuban Friendship Association, Lopez noted that Cuba sent medical brigades to nearly thirty States, which means that over 3,000 healthcare collaborators provide their support and knowledge for containing the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in various regions of the world.

Those professionals are part of the Henry Reeve contingent and are specialized in dealing with pandemics and natural disasters.

According to official data, they join the over 28,000 Cuban doctors, nurses and technicians working in 59 nations.

The ambassador recognized the work of the healthcare professionals and affirmed that Cuba offers its solidarity to the world although the tightening of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade against the country in force for almost six decades.

The participants at the videoconference received updated information on the achievements and challenges of Cuba in the midst of the situation generated by Covid-19.

In addition, they paid tribute to Antonio Maceo and Ernesto Che Guevara on the 175th and 92nd anniversaries of their birthdays, respectively.
