Cuba blasts US ‘lies’ over virus help

AFP, Havana

Cuba hit out at the United States on Thursday over a “campaign of discredit and lies” against the doctors it has sent around the world to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Following requests in recent weeks, communist Cuba has sent medical teams to Italy, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Grenada, Suriname, Jamaica and Belize.

The export of medical services is one of the pillars of the Cuban economy that has suffered almost six decades of crippling US sanctions, bringing in $6.3 billion in 2018, according to official figures.

“The American government’s campaign of discredit is immoral in any circumstances, and it’s particularly offensive for Cuba and the world in times of a pandemic that threatens all of us,” said the foreign ministry. The US State Department is waging “a continuous and exacerbated campaign of discredit and lies against the international medical cooperation supplied by Cuba,” the ministry said in a diplomatic protest statement.

“#Cuba offers its international medical missions to those afflicted with #COVID-19 only to make up the money it lost when countries stopped participating in the abusive program,” said the State Department on Twitter.
