"For 60 years, you have been an example and an invaluable resource for all the peoples of the world... A nation that is giving a great lesson in solidarity and humanity. Its doctors, who have cured the sick in 64 countries, testify to the value of a socialist society."
The Italian Communists sent a fraternal hug to the people of Cuba and all those who have worked to maintain socialism despite the U.S. blockade.
The PCI also stressed that Cubans in Italy show that "capitalism supplies the superfluous, while socialism gives what is necessary."
"After years of cutting public health spending, our health system is experiencing great difficulties. However, the incessant work of Cuban doctors and health workers is with us today in the trench against the coronavirus,” the PCI explained.
