Havana, 31 Oct.- Some 20,000 Cuban families are waiting for diagnoses of genetic diseases that have not been adequately treated, said Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic.
Through his account on social network X, the Head of State pointed out that the technology needed for these diagnoses contains more than 10 percent of American manufacture, so the genocidal trade blockade, against the largest of the Antilles prevents access to it.
"We want to live #MejorSinBloqueo (better without blockade)," the president concluded his message on the social network.
"20,000 Cuban families are awaiting diagnosis of genetic diseases that have not been adequately treated. The necessary technology contains more than 10 percent American manufacture, and the #BloqueoGenocida (genocidal blockade) prevents us from accessing it. We want to live #MejorSinBloqueo".
The economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba more than 60 years ago consists of coercive measures against the revolutionary government, but that generate terrible damage to the population, which has since suffered the consequences of this repressive measure.
The measures seek to provoke hardship and weaken Cuba economically, by denying it money and resources, to achieve the reduction of wages and, with it, popular discontent for economic dissatisfaction. (ACN) (Photo taken from the Internet)
