Cuba sends doctors to help Togo fight Covid-19

(Togo First) - A contingent of 11 doctors from the Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade in Cuba has arrived in Togo to help fight the coronavirus. 

Togo is therefore the second African nation to receive Cuban doctors, after Angola. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Central American nation has gained the admiration of many. Last month, as many Cuban doctors arrived in Italy to help the European nation handle the crisis, they were received as heroes. 

It should be noted that Cuba has one of the world’s best health systems. 

Its support to Togo adds to China’s which recently sent some masks, test kits, and ventilators among others to the country. 

So far, Togo has confirmed 76 cases of Covid-19, 44 active, 29 recovered, and 3 deaths, for nearly 2,600 people tested.
