"Cuba said on Thursday its two-shot Soberana 2 vaccine, delivered with a booster called Soberana Plus, had proven 91.2% effective in late stage clinical trials against the coronavirus, following similar news about its Abdala vaccine."

Cuba is the first country in Latin American and the Caribbean to successfully develop to successfully develop a coronavirus vaccine, and if its results are corroborated, it would catapult the island nation into the select group of the United States, Germany and Russia that produce vaccines with efficacy of more than 90%.

We stand with them as they demand for their government to address their dire needs.

Our country has reached a pivotal turning point. Let's make sure we steer the Biden-Harris Administration in the right direction! We've been given an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past 60 years of policy towards Cuba, one which we can't afford to waste.

We must show the White House that a majority of Americans support engagement with our island neighbor. That starts with YOU.

Cuba Says U.S. Restrictions Will Force Western Union Offices to Close

"Emilio Morales, president of the Miami-based Havana Consulting Group, said the Trump administration’s restrictions have put the onus on the Cuban government at a time when it was already struggling to shore up an economy crippled by sanctions and the coronavirus pandemic. The virus has brought tourism to a grinding halt and slowed remittances."

Make no mistake. This new restriction will only harm Cuban families that depend on remittances. The Trump administration has made this move in the middle of a pandemic. It is unconscionable.

The moves could severely restrict the flow of remittances from abroad and worsen a profound economic crisis on the island.

Sunday is the religion of mercy, affection and forgiveness, my dear brother I did not send this message in vain, no, but I want good for all human beings

El embargo sólo funciona con el gobierno cubano, y no le impide hacer compras de medicamentos y medicinas en Estados Unidos; lo que no puede es importar tecnología ni servicios, o accede a créditos. El único embargo real es el que impide a individuos cubanos hacer negocios directos con extranjeros; y ese no corre por cuenta del gobierno norteamericano sino del cubano mismo.
Just wrote article with one more argument for ending the embargo. Please share.
Cuban people do not need any more problems, they have had enough since 1959 Please God help them!!!
