‘Our deepest gratitude goes to them and to Cuba for showing a solid friendship and for the great solidarity with Italy at this difficult time and evidence for the entire community,’ stressed the minister, who at the end of the activity exchanged greetings with Cuba’s ambassador in Italy Jose Carlos Rodriguez.
Both Güerini and the rest of the local and regional authorities present stood out the role played by the Italian army in the construction and management of the hospital, equipped with optimal conditions to fulfill its mission of supporting the healthcare service at crucial moments of the emergency.
The 36 doctors, 15 nurses and a logistics specialist sent by Cuba were bid farewell with innumerable expressions of appreciation and affection, summed in an emotional ceremony carried out in the central Plaza del Duomo in the northern city of the Lombardy region.
Over 5,000 medical services, 3, 668 nurses and 210 direct recoveries, guarantee the contribution of Cuban healthcare professionals in the campaign structure, in the local hospital and in a care institution for older adults with diseases triggered by Covid-19. (Prensa Latina)
