The whole world is grappling with how best to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. One country, Cuba, is sending its doctors and other health professionals around the world to help beleaguered health care systems. It is also making available a Cuban produced antiviral drug, Interferon Alpha 2B, that has been widely used in China, as well as Cuba, and has shown some success in strengthening the body’s immune system to fight off the virus.
The US government, instead of seeking to collaborate with Cuba, is demanding that other countries refuse to accept the Cuban doctors and drugs, while simultaneously strengthening its 60 year long economic blockade of Cuba, trying to deny the Cuban people the food, medical supplies and gasoline they and their society needs.
