COVID-19 Medical Appeal Update on second shipment of aid
In May, a further £16,500 was spent on equipment to help Cuba treat and vaccinate its people as part of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign’s COVID-19 Medical Appeal.
It includes specialist equipment for Cuba's testing and vaccination programme including cryotubes for transporting test samples, as well as serums and compounds used to manufacture drugs to treat patients with COVID-19.
Although Cuba’s rates of infection and deaths from the disease are low compared to the world average, cases in 2021 have peaked with new variants, and current daily rates of infection are around 1,100 with 10 deaths a day.
Once again we would like to thank everyone who has donated to this appeal.
