More Cuban Health Workers who Fought Ebola in Africa Arrive in Havana

Havana, Cuba, April 23.- Thirteen Cuban health workers who fought the Ebola fever virus in Guinea Conakry arrived in Cuba on Tuesday from that country of West Africa.

Like previous groups, this group of members of the Henry Reeve International Contingent arrived at the Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport of Matanzas province, near the Varadero beach resort, after staying for over six months in such risky mission, by way of which they saved the lives of hundreds of people.

Authorities of the Ministry of Public Health informed that the remaining 24 Cuban physicians and nurses that are still in Guinea Conakry will stay there until late May.

On March 23, a first group of 158 physicians and nurses returned to Cuba from Sierra Leone and Liberia, the two other West African countries hit by the virus, so most of the 256 members of the Henry Reeve Internationalist contingent are already back home. (ACN)
