Havana, February 16 (RHC)--The Business Insider website, one of the leading U.S. financial and economic news sites, highlighted the progress made by Cuban candidates for vaccination against Covid-19.
The digital site emphasized that the Caribbean nation is working on its vaccination program against the pandemic with homegrown resources.
It highlights that Cuba could be one of the first countries to immunize its entire population this year. It also referred to an interview with British professor Beate Kampmann, director of the Vaccine Center at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
