United Nations, Mar 25 (Prensa Latina) In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the United States today is devoting efforts and resources to denigrating Cuban medical cooperation and threatening those countries that receive aid from the island's health brigades.
This is what Cuba's alternate permanent representative to the United Nations, Ana Silvia Rodriguez, denounced on Wednesday through her official Twitter account.

The ambassador also referred to the complex situation that New York is currently experiencing, the city where the UN headquarters are located and one of the main focuses of the disease in the United States.

New York authorities are desperately asking for federal aid to assist the nearly 30,000 people with Covid-19, but the U.S. government is not listening, Rodriguez said.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez stressed that despite the difficult situation, Cuba is modestly offering to provide some cooperation to those who need it.

We have been dealing with the requests for medical assistance from several countries, which are asking for Cuban health personnel to deal with the crisis generated by Covid-19, the foreign minister said.

But the U.S. government is trying to undermine the Havana government's will, and through its social networks, the U.S. embassy in Cuba is disseminating messages that attack the island's medical cooperation.

Such a situation has generated numerous reactions of rejection among social network users, who are grateful for the island's help under the label #CubaSalva and spread messages of gratitude to the Cuban medical brigades.

The director general for the United States of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, said that, at a time of crisis, when the northern nation is falling apart due to the negligence and greed of its government in dealing with Covid-19, the U.S. State Department criticizes nations that appeal to Cuba for medical assistance.

'Terrible moral decadence,' he stressed through his official Twitter account and reaffirmed Cuba's willingness to provide medical assistance to the most needy.
