Havana, January 15 (RHC)-- Cuba's Public Health Minister José Ángel Portal congratulated the Caribbean nation's scientists, who responded with their talent to the health situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"You contribute daily to protect the health of our people from the most diverse scenarios," Portal stressed in a letter published on the website of the Ministry on the occasion of Cuban Science Day.

"From our institutes, university classrooms, modern laboratories with state-of-the-art technology, or our communities... each of their ideas and research has been essential to provide us with technological sovereignty, amid a complex epidemiological context," Portal stressed.

An indisputable milestone "that we cannot fail to recognize today is the development of our vaccines, which has enabled us to achieve a dizzying rate of immunization among our population, including pediatric immunization for children over two years of age" said the minister.

This is something achieved by a few nations globally and demonstrates the great potential of Cuba and its professionals, he said.

Doing science in Cuba will never cease to be a challenge when it comes to material resources. In the face of these unquestionable limitations, our researchers and scientists always know how to grow, and that is their best tribute to life, Portal stressed.
