Havana, September 5, 2020. Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez denounced the international media silence about Cuba's scientific contributions to the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
On his Twitter account, the head of Cuban diplomacy noted that, even if men and women of science in the country 'share their achievements with the world, they show the protocols against the pandemic and the results of a Cuban vaccine candidate,' little information show that effort.
