Cuban Doctors Arriving Italy To Combat Coronavirus
A group of 36 Cuban doctors, 15 nurses and logistic experts have arrived in Italy to help stop the spread of the coronavirus in the Lombardy region.
Italy has become the country with the most deaths linked to the virus in the world, overtaking China, which is where the virus originated, leaving the country quite overwhelmed in trying to treat patients.
This lead to the European country making the request of Cuba, which is regarded as having one of the best healthcare systems in the world. In light of this, Cuba has sent fifty-two highly skilled doctors to help the Italians in their time of need.
Cuban doctors were on the front lines in the fight against cholera in Haiti and against Ebola in West Africa 10 years ago.
Nearly 800 Italians died from the new coronavirus on Saturday.
