Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said today that the alleged promotion of U.S. values has historically been a pretext for attacking other nations.
The foreign minister stressed in his Twitter account that this way of acting in U.S. foreign policy has been used to defend the economic interests of that country and to establish its domination.
Dr Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease expert, has told a House Committee there could be a COVID-19 vaccine later this year or early in 2021, but warned that the next few weeks will be critical to tamping down coronavirus hot spots around the country.
Fauci and other top health officials also said they have not been asked to slow down testing for coronavirus, a controversial issue after President Donald Trump said last weekend he had asked them to do just that because it was uncovering too many infections. Trump said earlier in the day that he was not kidding.
The National Director of Epidemiology of the Cuban Ministry of Public Health, Dr. Francisco Duran, reported that there was only one new case detected of COVID-19, for a total of 2,319 positive cases across the island.
