This year, Cuba will produce 100 million doses of its new Soberana 02 coronavirus vaccine to meet its internal demand and those of other countries, a leading Cuban scientist reported on Wednesday.
"We are reorganizing our production capacities because we really have a lot of demand for the vaccine and we have to prepare ourselves," Vicente Vérez, director of the Finlay Institute, told a group of journalists at a conference in which he gave a tour of the laboratory where the vaccine against COVID-19 is manufactured.

Once again we are pleased to greet His Excellency Mr. Josep Borrell, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, whom we welcome for being this the first time that he attends the Joint Cuba-EU Council meetings. We likewise appreciate the presence of Minister Arancha and the representatives of member States, who are key actors in the implementation of the Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement (PDCA).
A day like today in 1960, during the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the Speleological Society of Cuba, in the auditorium of the Academy of Medical, Physical and Natural Sciences of Havana, the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro gave a historic speech in which he emphasized: "The future of our Homeland has to be, necessarily, a future of men of science, of men of thought". This date has been chosen to commemorate the Cuban Science Day.
The Ministry of Science and Technology (CITMA) of Cuba, the Cuban Research Centers and all Cubans commemorate this special day.
