Cuba in Canada

Statement by the President of the Republic of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, at the General Debate of the 75th session of the UNGA.

A global pandemic has changed everyday life drastically. From one day to the next, millions of people get infected and thousands die even when their life expectancy was longer thanks to development. Hospital systems with high-level services have collapsed and the health structures of poor countries are affected by their chronic lack of capacity.

Theaters, discos, galleries and even schools are closed or being readjusted.
