After 2 months, Cuban doctors end mission in Italy

The first team of Cuban doctors and nurses sent to help Italy in the fight against the pandemic of the new coronavirus said goodbye on Saturday (23) from the city of Crema, where he worked for two months in a field hospital.

The entourage had landed in Italy on March 22 and consists of 37 doctors and 15 nurses from the Henry Reeve Brigade. “We were shipwrecked, and you helped us without asking our name or our provenance. After months of struggle, anguish and doubts, now we see the light, but only because we stand by each other,” said Crema Mayor Stefania Bonaldi of the center-left Democratic Party (PD).

“You have come at the most dramatic moment and have strived to turn the lament into dance, a collective dance that shows that lonely heroes do not win the great battles,” he added.

Crema is in the Region of Lombardy, leader in absolute number of cases in Italy, with 86,384, out of a total of 228,658 in the country, according to the Civil Defense. A second team of Cuban health operators has been allocated to Turin since April 13.
