Haiti - Health : The Cuban Medical Brigade fights against the epidemic in Haiti
The members of the Cuban Medical Brigade continue their actions in Haiti with patients in the 10 departments, in particular cases of Covid-19, while the number of people infected since March 19, 2020 approaches the bar of 7,000 cases https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31299-haiti-flash-the-number-of-suspect-cases-doubles-in-24-hours.html

As a reminder, last April, around twenty Cuban professionals joined the fight against the pandemic in Haiti in one of the main treatment centers, while hundreds of other specialists from the Cuban brigades continued their regular work in the communes, across the national territory. A Cuba-Haiti cooperation that has lasted for over 20 years https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-25965-haiti-cuba-20-years-of-cuban-medical-aid-in-haiti.html

"We maintain our levels of patient care in the same way, with the only difference that today we protect ourselves with the means defined for this pandemic," said Yadira Diego Pupo, Departmental Coordinator in Artibonite, the second region hardest hit by Covid-19 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31297-haiti-covid-19-daily-report-july-16-2020.html

Artibonite records 375 confirmed cases, and nearly 20% of deaths. Diego explained that the brigade is working in particular to identify potential patients infected with Covid-19, and then to integrate them into the national health system. Pointing out that Cuban professionals offer information on the use of masks, the isolation of people with symptoms, frequent hand washing and others that can limit the spread of the virus.

At the same time, Cuban brigade personnel continue their field consultations, surgical operations and rehabilitation in all the hospitals where they provide services. "We were able to work for the emergency as is the case for Covid-19, but without ceasing to work on what is important because of our commitment to provide assistance to all people," added Luis Orlando Olivero, chief of the Cuban Medical Brigade.
