Madrid, May 21 (Prensa Latina) An association of Cubans living in Spain requested this Thursday the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the Cuban medical brigades that cooperate in many countries in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
This request was presented by the Cultural Association of Cuban Residents of Southern Spain La Avellaneda, in a letter sent to the commission that awards the prestigious international prize.
“We request that the clamor of the associations of Cubans and friends from different countries be granted to award the Cuban medical brigades with the Nobel Peace Prize, for their solidarity, altruism and love for others, in their purpose of saving lives,” the letter said.
This association, based in the region of Andalusia in southern Spain, argues for the award of the prize that Cuban health professionals have been on the front line in the fight against the SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus in any nation that requests it.
As part of the Henry Reeve International Contingent, which specializes in severe disaster and epidemic situations around the world, Cuban health workers are helping to contain the deadly Covid-19 pandemic in 24 countries, including two European countries, Italy and Andorra.
In addition to these 1,500 doctors and nurses, organized in 26 brigades dedicated to the fight against Covid-19, the disease caused by the SARS-Cov-2 virus, another 28,000 collaborators in the sector are already serving in 59 nations.
