CNN praises Cuba’s policy on preventing diseases

Washington, March 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuba’s health system is aimed at preventing diseases instead of waiting for treating them, praises this Saturday the CNN reporter in Cuba, Patrick Oppmann.

Even though Cuban professionals work with a minimum of resources, usually due to the US blockade, the health system that leads practices in the sector ‘makes Cuba be extremely effective at aiding in case of disaster.’

Oppmann assesses Cuba’s aid to several nations afflicted by Covid-19 pandemic, and addresses the White House’s politics against these efforts.

He noted that despite the growing contributions of Cuba in the fight against the pandemic, is very unlikely that Havana receives a similar US offer provided by President Donald Trump to send humanitarian aid to the DPRK.

In turn, US State Department wants countries reconsider requesting aid from Cuba, and launches a bunch of criticism supported by fake reports, details the information issued by the website

Cuba provides to some countries free medical assistance grounded on solidarity while other countries are paying for services, indicates Oppmann, who was target of hard criticism by sectors opposing to approaching Havana.

The journalist stressed Cuban campaign to thwart the spread of the novel coronavirus, including the deployment of thousands of health workers, among them medicine students, to tour the country by knocking each door to seek people suffering from a respiratory disease, which could be Covid-19.
