52 doctors from the Caribbean nation of Cuba have arrived in Italy to assist with the challenges of the coronavirus in that country.
Italy has become the country with the most deaths linked to the virus in the world, overtaking China, which is where the virus originated, leaving the country quite overwhelmed in trying to treat patients.
This lead to the European country making the request of Cuba, which is regarded as having one of the best healthcare systems in the world. In light of this, Cuba has sent fifty-two highly skilled doctors to help the Italians in their time of need.
The brigade of doctors will head to the crisis-hit area of Lombardy that is the worst affected region in Italy. Hundreds died on Saturday as the numbers continue to balloon with no end in sight.
