Cuba’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been “among the most respected in the world,” according to this article from The Conversation, due to widespread confidence in the Cuban government’s science-based policies, public service media messaging and volunteerism. Despite limits on resources due to former President Donald Trump’s tightening of the U.S. blockade, Cuba has continued to send doctors to aid pandemic efforts in 37 countries and is gearing up for the launch of their vaccination program with international clinical trials on multiple vaccines.
