“The training will take place at Girassol Hospital… because it has excellent simulators for practical classes, which is an indispensable condition,” local outlet SAPO reported.
With that training, "Angolan doctors will visit the families assigned to them, at a rate of 1,000 inhabitants per professional, cohabiting with the Cubans who arrived in Angola for the purpose," the Inter-ministerial Commission for Pandemic Response spokesperson explained.
On Friday morning, 256 Cuban health workers arrived in Angola to support the fight against COVID-19, which has already infected 19 people in this African country.
The Cuban team member will be distributed to 164 municipalities in order to contain the epidemic from the rural territories with the greatest needs.
“Cuban doctors will not only stay in referral hospitals. They will put their knowledge to the benefit of Angola and Angolans, even in remote areas, especially with confirmed cases,” the Health Minister said.
