Prime Minister recognizes work carried out by the Cuban medical brigade in Mexico

Havana, Aug 3 .- The Prime Minister of Cuba, Manuel Marrero, recognized today the work of health collaborators who fought Covid-19 in Mexico for three months.

According to the Presidency's Twitter account, after completing the established distancing period, Marrero held a meeting this morning with these Cuban professionals, in which the vice-prime minister Roberto Morales and the minister of Health, José Angel also participate.

In the dialogue with professionals, experiences in Mexican lands are exposed, with the purpose of incorporating good practices into disease management protocols in the Caribbean nation, as President Miguel Díaz-Canel has said at other times.

The brigade is made up of health professionals from all the provinces of the country and from the special municipality of Isla de la Juventud, and they worked in 68 services in nine hospitals.

Around 54 thousand patients were attended by these specialists, of them 43,044 having coronavirus.

The work of the more than 580 cooperators, including biomedical engineers, epidemiologists, general practitioners and specialists, as well as nurses, was recognized by the Mexican authorities.

The Mexican foreign minister, Marcelo Ebrard, in giving the farewell to the health personel, expressed his thanks on Twitter on behalf of the government and people of his country.

He highlighted that work as an invaluable support of Cuban doctors and nurses, who went to save lives in those difficult months of fighting the pandemic, and added: "Our gratitude is always with you." (PL) (Photo: File)
