Through a video, President Miguel Diaz-Canel welcomed the 20 doctors and 18 nurses who attended patients in an adapted hospital for almost 100 days.
Besides thanking them for their support in the fight against COVID-19 in the Piedmont region, he updated the group as to the economic and sanitary situation in Cuba.
Over the last three months, the Cuban health workers attended 2,918 patients in the Piedmont region, 177 of them in Turin’s red zone.
Cuba has sent thousands of doctors to 27 countries to fight COVID. It's the only medical contingent providing a global response to the pandemic. In a world that made sense, these selfless heroes would be granted the Nobel Peace Prize. @CubaNobelhttps://t.co/2SPJEcdJrG
