This is "the second Cuban brigade that traveled to Italy to collaborate in
the fight against the pandemic," he said.

*"A brigade of eleven collaborators from the Henry Reeve International
Contingent left today for Togo, in sub-Saharan Africa, to support the
confrontation with the COVID-19. This is the first time that a Cuban
medical brigade will bring health to that nation." *

This new medical brigade to Italy is made up of 20 doctors and 18 nursing
specialists, according to teleSUR's Havana correspondent Nayara Tardo.

Similarly, the country's Ministry of Public Health (Minsap) announced that

"This is the first time that a Cuban medical brigade will bring health to
that nation." Minsap Minister Jose Angel Portal said this Sunday on his
