In the prelude to PASO, the former Minister of Security and president of the PRO, Patricia bullrich, launched a serious accusation against the government of Alberto Fernández by pointing out that it “lent” vaccines against the coronavirus to friendly countries, in a reference to Bolivia, Venezuela O Cuba. After the accusation, the complaint began to be linked to the shipment of medical supplies to Havana on September 5 through an Air Force Hercules plane. This afternoon, from Chancellery they answered the accusation.
«Given the false information that is circulating about the shipment of 9 million vaccines to Cuba in an Argentine Air Force plane, we attach the cargo manifest that details the medical supplies donated by our country«, They emphasized from the body led by Felipe Solá. The letter refers to the humanitarian aid that the country transferred to the Cuban capital to face the impact of the coronavirus.
According to the official document, the list of products sent includes: 517,600 disposable syringes; 31,000 disposable needles 23Gx1 (23/6); 10,000 surgical masks; 10,000 chinstraps N ° 95 from Conicet; 1,000 face shields; and 10,000 nitrile gloves. 2,000 cloth camisoles were also transferred; 20,000 vials; and 10,086 tips (tips) with sterile filter.
On September 10, Bullrich denounced in dialogue with LN + that “Argentina still has 9 million vaccines that we do not know where they are,” adding that “some say they are not in Argentina, that we lend them to someone. I do not know, it is a subject to investigate ». After launching the serious accusation, the head of the PRO clarified that she did not want to “confirm information that I still do not have”, although she insisted on the proposal: “They say we gave it to one of these countries of which we are friends.”
After this complaint, the sending of humanitarian aid to Cuba with “medical supplies” to strengthen the Central American country in the fight against the coronavirus began to take on relevance. Although in the note published by Télam on September 5, on social networks they disbelieved the information and began to link this shipment with the missing dose in our country. Given this, the Foreign Ministry chose to share the document
