Italy has granted awards for civil merits to 38 Cuban doctors and nurses who assisted Italy in its battle against coronavirus.
The Cuban health professionals worked alongside Italian medics in Turin for three months. Their awards recognise “the role the medical team has played during the 2020 health emergency, dedication and high professionalism lavished daily caring Piedmontese patients with Covid-19.”
The Piedmont Regional Council presented the awards on Monday. President of the council Stefano Allasi expressed his thanks to the medical team, while Cuban Ambassador to Italy Jose Carlos Rodriguez spoke of the gratitude the Cuban health professionals received during their work on Italy’s frontline.
