The Great Leader of the World Com. Fidel Castro, Former President of Cuba writes :
In an article titled "Heroes of our time" in the Cuban newspaper ''Granma'', Fidel Castro shared his opinions and appreciation toward Cuban efforts made to stop the Ebola virus outbreak.
According to The Associated Press, the article has the former Cuban president's signature and is dated Oct. 2 at 8:47 p.m., but he said Granma asked "to publish it Saturday."
In the article, Castro praised medical workers who went to Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea to fight Ebola. On Wednesday, 165 Cuban doctors and nurses went to Sierra Leone, bringing the number of Cuban health workers in the three countries most affected by the virus to 461.
"The delivery of the first medical brigade to Sierra Leone ... is an example of a country which can boast," Castro said in the article. "May the example of Cuban's march to Africa also be in the hearts and minds of other physicians in the world, especially those with more resources."
The 88-year-old, who stepped down in 2006 due to illness, added that there should be enough world resources to keep everyone alive. "There are enough doctors on the planet so that nobody has to die for lack of care," Castro said.
