Velissarios Kossivakis, administrator of the Greek Team for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to the Henry Reeve Cuban Medical Brigade, reported that they today presented the Honor Committee for that initiative.
Cuban scientists are progressing in the search for a domestic vaccine against COVID-19, a goal that every day seems to be closer.
To achieve this goal, the Finlay Institute of Vaccines (IFV) has played an essential role in obtaining a candidate to prevent SARS-CoV-2 and provide the country with technological sovereignty in the production and availability of this possible immunogen.
Dr. Francisco Duran, Cuba´s national director of Epidemiology, noted that a vaccine against Covid-19 would be ready in the first months of 2021.
The Henry Reeves brigade, which worked in Kuwait in the confrontation with COVID-19, arrived this morning in Havana where it was welcomed online by Prime Minister Manuel Marrero.
