The reason Communist countries have problems is because the US runs the world's currency which is the dollar.

Communism ran in the right way will always have better results than capitalism.

The USSR was great economically they just kept dealing with war after war.

Venuezuela does a great job producing goods but the US sanctions fu*k them as a country.

Mar 25 - CUBA USES 'WONDER DRUG' TO f*ght CORONAVIRUS AROUND WORLD DESPITE U.S. SANCTIONS
 

 
Cuba has mobilized its medical corps around the world to distribute a new "wonder drug" that officials there say is capable of treating the new coronavirus despite the United States' strict sanctions that continue to pressure the communist-run island.

The drug, called Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant (IFNrec), is jointly developed by scientists from Cuba and China, where the coronavirus COVID-19 disease outbreak first emerged late last year. Already active in China since January, the Cuban Medical Brigades began deploying to dozens of nations, providing personnel and products such as its new anti-viral drug to battle the disease that has exceeded 400,000 confirmed cases across the globe. As of Tuesday, over 100,000 people have recovered from the infection and more than 18,000 have died.

Cuba first used advanced interferon techniques to treat dengue fever in the 1980s and later found success in using it to combat HIV, human papillomavirus, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and other diseases. The use of Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant "prevents aggravation and complications in patients reaching that stage that ultimately can result in death," Cuban biotech expert Luis Herrera Martinez said, according to a recent Yale University Press Blog feature written by the University of Glasgow's Helen Yaffe. She called the treatment a potential "wonder drug" against the new coronavirus.

Yaffe, who recently authored a book on Cuba's post-Soviet economic experience entitled We Are Cuba!, told Newsweek that she knew of at least 15 countries that have contacted Cuba to request the drug, along with "local mayors and hospital directors who are anxious to get hold of the Cuban anti-viral to meet the crisis." Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant has not been approved to treat COVID-19, but has been proven effective against viruses similar to it.

It has been selected along with 30 other drugs to treat COVID-19 by China's National Health Commission. The World Health Organization will be studying interferon-beta, along with three other drugs, to determine their effectiveness against the new coronavirus.

Cuba's ambitious anti-pandemic efforts are hindered, however, by decades-long U.S. sanctions that one Cuban official described to Newsweek as "the main obstacle not only to respond to major health crises like COVID-19, but the main obstacle to the country's development at any area."

"The lifting of the blockade against Cuba would have an extraordinarily positive impact on Cuba and mostly in the health sector, which has been one of the most damaged areas since the establishment of the blockade almost 60 years ago with more than 3 billion in economic losses," the official added.

Many American readers have asked us if the interferon produced by Cuba could be exported to the United States. Yes, it could. In the early 1960s, the U.S. government imposed a trade embargo on Cuba that prohibits Cuban productions from being exported to the United States and that Cuba, in turn, import those produced in the United States. However, as part of the measures taken by the Obama administration to relax said embargo and move towards normalization of relations between the two countries, in October 2016 the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign a*sets Control (OFAC) approved regulations to authorize scientific collaboration in the medical field between Americans and Cubans, as well as the possibility that drugs produced in Cuba could obtain the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and be marketed in the United States.

Despite the fact that most of the measures taken by the Obama administration in relation to Cuba have been repealed by the Donald Trump government, and also the scientific collaboration has deteriorated, this measure approved by Obama has survived. So if necessary and obtaining the FDA license, the interferon produced in Cuba could benefit thousands of Americans.

If this were true, you would see the success of it in those countries, yet all you see are failures

Stop with the socialism fantasies.

As destructive as Castro was, he offered free medical college to students from low-income and marginalized communities. The goal was to create African diaspora doctors instead of Eurocentric.



He also worked with black panthers and the nation of islam in the 70s, 80s, and 90s to funnel African Americans who wanted to go to college into various universities abroad, paid for tons of peoples education.

He even put 3 of Farrakhan kids through medical schools and they're doctors, and when Malcolm X's family was struggling with bills in the 80s he swept in and took care of them. Gave money to Martin Luther Kings family as well

this thread just another example on how social media has been used to attack America.

Imagine debating Cuba's role in this situation as some sort of leading role as if it was a possibility.

If one person falls for this, then they win.

Small island country of 11 million who has been US enemy for decades at forefront of f*ght against virus with miracle drug.

sh*t might as well be written in a foreign language because its foreign propaganda.
Every time someone has something positive to say about any country other than America you call it propaganda.

America produces its own propaganda...are you sure you haven't just fallen for that?

Reminds me of all the Rick Ross d*ckriding you did for years in the hip hop spot

you say the problem is because the US runs the world's currency huh? Why you think that is?

Venezuela got fu*ked up because the US placed sanctions on them? Why do they need the US to thrive? Why can't neighboring countries help them out? It seems America is doing just fine with the current system, their currency is on top and countries need them for their survival
