The columnist, who previously wrote an article on the scope of the Cuban medical collaboration carried out by its armies in white coats, underlined the priority given by that country to the global fight against the pandemic, despite the limitations derived from the hostile US policy. .
Such a reality occurs – he added – although the country is exposed to a serious shortage of food and fuel, deficiencies associated with the blockade maintained by successive US administrations, unprecedented economic pressures exerted by the occupant of the White House, Donald Trump, he said .
In the text highlighted by Ahram (The Pyramids, in Arabic) the columnist regretted that more than 22 million people in the world were infected by the new coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2), while the death toll exceeded three quarters of the million.
The United States tops the list of countries in which the virus is rampant, added Gaballa, after recalling that unlike Cuba surrounded by that northern government, it seeks its own drug, its weapon against the disease, it is a matter of sovereignty, he insisted.
According to the Cuban president, Miguel Díaz-Canel, Soberana 01 will be tested in 676 people between 19 and 80 years old.
According to the health authorities, this process should take place in the period between this August 24 and January 11, 2021.
It seems that history is repeating itself once more in the United States by provoking a new cold war, as a consequence and in the context of its catastrophic failure to face the contagious virus, on the one hand, and for propaganda reasons related to the Trump electoral campaign, he expressed.
The objective – argued the columnist – is to overthrow the government of Cuba by tightening the financial rope, a strategy that it also applies against China and other nations of the world, he said.
Gaballa presented a series of historical references in this regard, such as positions of former presidents Obama (towards the Caribbean island) and Richard Nixon (towards the Asian giant), which differ from current approaches, he considered.
Congratulations to the people of poor and developing countries, as Cuba begins today the clinical trials of its vaccine against Covid-19, the results of which will be available in January, he said.
