HAVANA, Cuba, May 22 (ACN) The Togolese communes of Dapaong, Kara and Kosode, seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, are receiving the collaboration of a Cuban medical brigade, Togolese doctors who graduated in Cuba and representatives of the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund in that African country.
According to information published on the website of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs, three teams went to these places this week to begin, along with the local authorities, the necessary care and prevention work.
