La negación plausible.

El Heraldo Cubano

Por Arthur González.

Acostumbrados a mentir y manipular la opinión pública, el Presidente  Donald Trump y su jefe del Departamento de Estado, Mike Pompeo, negaron que Estados Unidos tuviera participación en la frustrada acción militar contra el gobierno constitucional de Venezuela, en días pasados.

A pesar de las contundentes pruebas mostradas y las declaraciones de los detenidos, entre ellos norteamericanos vinculados a la seguridad personal de Trump, ambos funcionarios se empeñan en negar su vinculación directa con la llamada Operación Gedeón.

Nada extraño en la conducta histórica de los yanquis, cuando se ven desenmascarados ante la opinión pública internacional.

¿Quién no recuerda aquel 15 de abril de 1961, cuando el representante de Estados Unidos ante la ONU, embajador Adlai Stevenson, negó rotundamente que aviones de su país hubieran bombardearon instalaciones militares cubanas esa mañana?

El canciller cubano Raúl Roa, denunció con vehemencia la acción terrorista, ante la sesión de…

Miami.-  Han pasado demasiados días desde el ataque terrorista contra el edificio de la embajada de Cuba en Washington, ocurrido en la madrugada del 30 de abril pasado, y aún el gobierno de Estados Unidos no ha tenido ningún contacto oficial sobre este odioso hecho con autoridades cubanas tanto en Washington como en La Habana.

La Agencia de noticias AP se hace eco de que legisladores venezolanos de oposición acordaron en secreto recibir un pago de 5.000 dólares mensuales al aprobar los bonos por 100 dólares para médicos y enfermeros que combaten al coronavirus. Monto cuantioso en un país zanjado en un crisis económica profunda.

El pago, que no fue reportado previamente, venía incluido en un proyecto que la Asamblea Nacional dirigida por Guaidó, aprobó la semana pasada y en el que se creó el “Fondo para la Liberación de Venezuela” de 80 millones de dólares, conformado con activos venezolanos incautados por el gobierno de Estados Unidos en su campaña de sanciones para derrocar al mandatario Nicolás Maduro.

Pero los detalles han estado rodeados de hermetismo. El texto de la nueva medida no se ha publicado. Y el anuncio oficial no hace mención de los…

One out of three patients cared for by the Cuban medical brigade in Lombardy, Italy, has already been discharged, Granma newspaper reported.

The note states that after 10 days of work, a third of the 36 COVID-19 patients treated by the Cuban collaborators have already recovered and been discharged.
Carlos Perez, head of the group, said that only on the first day of work they received 16 cases from the hospital in the city of Crema – very close to where it is located the campaign facility in which they offer their services–, and until last Saturday, the joint effort of Italian and Cuban doctors had provided 428 services in the different medical specialties.

Of those infected by the new coronavirus, Perez spoke about the transfer of five people to hospital therapies, according to the country’s protocols, and reported the death of only…

Cuando no se quiere que la verdad resulte noticia

En una operación de silencio, los grandes medios de prensa en idioma español, autoproclamados paladines de la información y supuestamente apegados al periodismo objetivo han silenciado toda noticia acerca del operativo humanitario desarrollado por Cuba con los más de mil pasajeros y tripulantes del crucero británico MS Braemar, que deambulaba por el Caribe con cinco enfermos de la Covid-19 y que varios países se negaron a recibir.

How Cuba’s antiviral medicine is helping China

By Rosa Miriam Elizalde

Rosa Miriam Elizalde is a Cuban journalist and editor of the site Cubadebate.  Reprinted from La Jornada, translation by Resumen Latinoamericano, North America bureau. 

Cuba’s antiviral Recombinant Interferon Alpha 2B (IFNrec) is among the medicines chosen by China to treat the coronavirus, the disease that has already caused at least 1,800 deaths in that country. To date, there is still no specific vaccine.

Interestingly, Interferon has been in Cuba for 39 years; the country began the development of this protein with antiviral properties at the same time that the biotechnology industry was being invented in 1981.

In that year, you could count on one hand the number of countries of the so-called first world that were working on this set of techniques that used living organisms — or part of them — with the aim of obtaining products or modifying them to improve plants or animals, or developing biological systems for specific purposes, in particular for the improvement of human health.

This definition of biotechnology is based on a wide range of knowledge that is supported by elite disciplines such as microbiology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioengineering and chemical engineering, molecular biology and immunology. The combination of these new techniques led to the so-called aircraft carrier of science, genetic engineering, which in Cuba opened its first center in 1986.

How can the phenomenon of Cuban biotechnology, which emerged in a country with no previous industrial development and under the obsessive blockade of the United States, be explained? How did it manage to become an economic line in a few years, while improving the health of the population, generating products and the basis of treatments for thousands of patents? Why was this an obsession of Fidel Castro?

Scientist Agustin Lage, who was director of the Havana Immunoassay Center — one of the many that emerged after the production of interferon alpha and beta in Cuba — has explained the miracle. “First a strong investment in education and health, with the guarantee of universal and free access is needed. Taking a stand for biotechnology, even during the worst crisis Cuba has experienced in the 1990s, and the social ownership of institutions that guarantees integration by freeing them from the trap of competing against each other.

“The design of the institutions as research-production-marketing centers that addresses the complete cycle of scientific research and the fact that in biotechnology, as in other industries of the so-called knowledge economy, productivity depends directly on the creativity of the workers, and this, in turn, on motivation. Finally understanding that real, competitive science is being done with first-rate results.”

All this explains why Cuba has the most extensive vaccination program in the world (recognized by the Pan American Health Organization and other international organizations), which includes universal coverage for newborns with vaccines against 13 diseases; epidemiological surveillance with the use of immunoassays for more than 20 diseases; hospitals  regularly use medicines such as interferon, monoclonal antibodies, cytokines, and other biopharmaceuticals.

Heberprot-P, a prodigious cure for diabetic foot ulcers that is in common therapeutic use in the national health network, could save a good part of the 83,000 patients who each year require amputation in the United States, whose government refuses to allow the commercialization of the drug because it comes from the rebellious little island.

Other factors play a role in the high public health indicators in Cuba, but there is no doubt that research in immunology and the use of industrial biotechnology have contributed to the reduction of infant mortality to 5 per thousand births while life expectancy is now 79 years.

The combination of these factors has allowed several infectious diseases to disappear, including polio, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and measles, and others to be controlled or reduced in their occurrence (hepatitis B; meningoencephalitis).

By the way, the man who put Fidel Castro on the path of biotechnology in the early 1980s was a Black Democratic congressman from Texas, Mickey Leland. He brought with him to Havana an eminent oncologist from Houston who used interferon in the treatment of cancer.

Leland was deeply hurt by his country’s government hostility to Cuba and considered the blockade not only counterproductive but inconsistent with U.S. values. “The United States,” he said, “should not refuse to sell medicine; the only victims are the sick and the helpless.”

Leland, a fighter against poverty in Africa, died in an airplane accident in Ethiopia shortly after uttering these words. Another fact hidden in the news

During the past year, 277,000 cases of cancer were registered in Spain. Half of the patients will die within a period of less than five years, suffering for the rest of their life an unspeakable ordeal of comings and goings to the hospital, chemo and radiotherapy, pain and suffering and indescribable fear.

In an advanced and civilized society, research to cure or alleviate cancer, heart disease and degenerative diseases should occupy a preeminent place, devoting all possible economic means to them.

Similarly, in a civilized and fair world, the World Health Organization, instead of shushing, should denounce the very high prices of treatments for those diseases that are ruining state health systems, declaring the freedom of all countries copy any medication that serves to improve the lives of the sick and condemn the mafia and monopolistic distribution of new treatments…

Behind the Coup: The most important CIA agents in La Paz, Bolivia. (Part I

February 17, 2020

Just as I had been alerting, the plans for a Coup against the President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, were consummated. Nevertheless, keep in mind that, this is just the beginning of that Langley has in store for the countries of Latin America they don’t like.

The list is long, and every thing points to Managua being the next in live. I will speak more on this in future articles.
