Brasilia, Jan 25.- The Workers' Party (PT) of Brazil thanked the people and government of Cuba for the attention given to former Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva during his stay in Cuba.
In a letter addressed to President Miguel Díaz- Canel, the first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, Army General Raúl Castro, and other Cuban leaders, the PT praises especially the medical care provided to Lula and the entire delegation that accompanied him, after the positive diagnosis of Covid-19, on December 26.
The political organization remarks on the exemplary treatment that the former worker leader could count on during his trip and how the Cuban public health system once again demonstrated its efficiency.
The document asserts that the entire delegation returned to Brazil fully recovered and in a position to continue their activities, still restricted in our country due to local sanitary conditions, very neglected by our federal government.
For the PT, the Cuban public health system, its universality and gratuitousness, should be an example for its Brazilian equivalent.
Thanks to highly evolved health research, Cuba can develop its own vaccines and is now working on one against Covid-19, the letter ponders.
The PT congratulates the government and people of Cuba for these and other actions, and wishes to continue our bilateral relations in search of a more humane and equal world. (Text and photo: PL)
