Cuban health professionals already in Jamaica are ready to face the new coronavirus pandemic and support that Caribbean nation's health system.
Dr. Eduardo Ropero, heading the most recent group of specialists to arrive in Kingston, confirmed the positive attitude of the 138 Cuban professionals, and said they are using the last few days of quarantine to study the measures and treatment for the treatment of the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
According to the Cuban physician, the distribution of Cuban professionals will begin Saturday to the four regions and 14 parishes of the Caribbean island, in order to strengthen the work already done by more than 200 Cuban health workers in the sister nation.
The Cuban brigade is made up of 49 doctors and 99 nurses, of whom 78 have experience in previous missions and most of the staff has more than 20 years of work in the sector.
Both nations established relations in December 1972 and since then have shared cooperative ties in different areas.
