Havana, Cuba: The President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, meets with the collaborators of the Henry Reeve Brigades who returned from Andorra, Nicaragua and Antigua and Barbudas after intense combat against COVID-19, the Cuban News Agency publishes.

This was announced in their Twitter profile by the Ministry of Public Health and noted that the objective of the meeting is to exchange experiences about the time they were providing health aid in these countries.

The Minister of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment, Rodrigo Malmierca Díaz, published on the same social network that the president was accompanied by Prime Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz.

“It was an emotive exchange where we knew about the experiences of our heroes. The Cuban people receive them with healthy pride”, he said.

On July 1, the Henry Reeve Brigade that was in the Principality of Andorra landed at the José Martí International Airport in Havana, where they exchanged with Díaz-Canel through a screen.

From March until their return, the members of the Cuban brigade treated 8,223 patients, carried out 66,484 nursing procedures and saved 106 lives.

In the third month of the year, a small group of professionals from the largest of the Antilles left for Nicaragua to share their knowledge and experiences in reducing the spread of the new coronavirus, among them the Deputy Director General of the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Marta Ayala and the virologist Magilé Fonseca.

In the case of Antigua and Barbuda, 29 doctors and nurses trained in disease infection prevention and control worked in that territory.
