Cuba is not alone

Cuban blockade is more inhumane in time of Covid-19, French lawmaker says

The inhumane nature of the US blockade against Cuba increases in times of the novel SARS-Cov2 coronavirus, French parliamentary leader Andre Chassaigne denounced on Wednesday.

Interviewed by Prensa Latina, Chassaigne, who is also a lawmaker from the central department of Puy-de-Dome, warned that Washington's position is scandalous and ignoble, in a scenario of global concern, which should be marked by solidarity and cooperation.

The fight against COVID-19 calls for a halt to the US blockade against Cuba

The blockade prevents the purchase of medicines, equipment and materials needed to combat the pandemic, and it makes it difficult for Cuba to borrow and receive international aid. For example a Western aircraft with medical personal protective equipment from China was prevented from delivering to Cuba. The United States dominates the manufacture of many medical devices in the world. Cuba's purchase of respirators was stopped when the two manufacturing companies in Switzerland were purchased by a US company. The humanitarian catastrophe of the pandemic is drastically exacerbated by the blockade and the sanctions that Cuba faces. These are now more extensive, harder and applied more strictly than ever during the 60 years that the country has been exposed to the hostile blockade of the superpower. It is an inhuman punishment of 11 million people. In addition, the sanctions complicate Cuba's international medical assistance, which is now also in demand by European countries such as Italy and Andorra.
