Prensa Latina reports that In his morning press conference at the National Palace, the President referred in praising terms to the Cuban medical brigade of the Henry Reeve contingent that arrived in Mexico in December at the peak of the second SARS-CoV-2 virus outbreak and when there was hospital saturation.
He recalled that his Government had finished a modern 300-bed hospital, which was not operating because Mexico did not have the required specialists, and Cuba sent them.
