Two Cuban physicians just arrived in China to strengthen the aid station set in Cuban embassy in China.
According to the Twitter account of the Cuban Embassy in China (@EmbacubaChina), the physicians aim at monitoring the coronavirus and hence guiding Cuban personnel in China to prevent the outbreak.
Three days ago, in a message released via Facebook, Cuba’s ambassador in China, Carlos Miguel Pereira Hernandez pointed out:
"Many are still concern about the health conditions of our fellow countrymen residing in the country before the worsening of the epidemic. I can confirm again that no members of our community residing in China have been affected so far. The exceptional situation has been set with an Action Plan that responds to what we have called Phase 2 and we are already assessing the necessary actions for Phase 3, which are to be implemented as soon as February 1st. The compliance with the actions directed by the local government as well as updates on the situation of our personnel are monitored on daily basis from the Embassy."
92 Cuban students are currently in Chinese territory studying different modalities and each is doing well. Only one of them is currently in the city of Wuhan, center of the outbreak, with whom we maintain daily communication.
Direct communication is also maintained with the 10 Cuban citizens residing in the city of Wuhan, which remains isolated. The local government is implementing its maximum alert strategy. Everyone is doing well and complying the safety measures.
