Cuba received on Friday the first batch of the 120 thousand syringe and needle kits donated by Cubans living in Panama and friends of the island, in order to support the mass vaccination against Covid-19.

Since March 11, 2020, when COVID-19 was introduced in Cuba, 500 people have died due to this disease, which in recent months has become difficult to control in the third outbreak affecting 190 countries in the world.

Fear does not hinder the willingness of young doctor Eddy Leonardo Perez, another health professional proud to be again in the Red Zone to fight COVID-19, the pandemic that has taken so many human lives.

Lebanon's acting health minister Hamad Hassan informed the Cuban ambassador to that Asian nation, Alexander Pellicer, about his country's interest in the clinical trials of the COVID-19 vaccine candidates developed in Cuba.

The Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) will be able to produce vaccine candidates against original strains of SARS-CoV-2 and mutants starting this month, announced on Thursday Dr. Miladys Limonta Fernandez, coordinator of vaccine candidate development projects of the institution.

The five Cuban COVID-19 candidate vaccines have proven to be safe from the scientific, methodological and ethical perpectives, while an ethic committee endorses the quality of research and guarantees the protection of the rights and wellbeing of the volunteers involved in current vaccination trials.
