Cuba today is facing one of its toughest tests. It has been under a U.S. financial and trade embargo for over six decades, and in the past year has suffered catastrophic environmental disasters with Hurricane Ian and the fire at the Matanzas fuel facility. In spite of this, the Cuban people continue to resist and defend their revolution.
According to the Cuban Public Health Ministry, as of October 12, 6,500,743 Cubans have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with its own vaccines. The figure represents 58.1% of the country’s entire population.
