Sexto hilo sobre la salud pública en Cuba.
Después de muchos años, están pintando el Hospital General Daniel Codorniú, situado en Placetas, Villa Clara.
Foto 1: Observen la diferencia entre la pared todavía sin pintar y la pintada.
Foto 2: Local de rayos X del mismo hospital.
Hospital Daniel Codorniú, en Placetas, Cuba.
Noten la cantidad de gente esperando afuera.
La mayoría de los médicos especialistas se pueden ver una vez por semana, vienen de la capital provincial, Santa Clara. Muchos médicos locales están de "misión" en algún país del mundo.
Consulta de gastroenterología del hospital general de Placetas.
Note que no hay privacidad. Es algo muy normal en Cuba: Cualquiera que pase por ahí se entera de las enfermedades de los pacientes. A veces las consultas se hacen hasta en los pasillos (esto ocurre en toda Cuba)

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.
#migration #COVID19
medium.com/@marta.foresti…
At @ODIdev we will be tracking and analysing these actions/innovations, for now here is an overview

First up the #USA where #NY state takes action allowing qualified graduates of foreign medical schools to contribute to the #Covid_19 emergency response
governor.ny.gov/news/no-20210-…
Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

Ok, while everybody is talking about #China, #Russia or #Cuba in the context of #coronadiplomacy, let's take a closer look at #Turkey. Who received Turkey's help? What did it consist of? Thread.
So it seems, naturally, that China was the first one to receive Turkish help in February. It consisted of: medicines, medical mascs, googles and gloves. Also in February 🇹🇷 evacuated from 🇨🇳 - in addition to the Turks - citizens of 🇦🇿, 🇦🇱 and 🇬🇪.
Then, in the first half of March, 🇹🇷 sent help to Bulgaria. According to @DailySabah 🇧🇬 "bought 50,000 masks, 100,000 protective garments and 100,000 safety goggles from Turkey". According to @anadoluajansi, 🇹🇷, together with Turkic Council countries, sent aid also to Hungary.

La pandemia ha puesto en evidencia muchas cosas:

1. Estados Unidos dejó de ser el país líder.
2. China ganó la 3ra guerra mundial sin disparar, ni un misil y nadie se dio cuenta.
3. Putin es un visionario.
4. A las malas se puede hacer mucho por el planeta y la humanidad.
5. Los europeos no son tan educados y cultos como creemos.
6. Hay mucho chileno que necesita educación y empatía.
7. El personal de salud vale más que un futbolista.
8. No estamos equivocados cuando pedimos más para hospitales, menos para la guerra.
9. El petróleo no vale nada en una sociedad sin consumo.
10. La prevención salva más vidas, que el actuar a último momento.
11. Los niños ocupan un lugar privilegiado para la naturaleza.
12. La muerte no distingue raza ni estrato social
13. La estupidez populista es atrevida.

Além da questão médica, de que não faço a menor ideia e não falarei, o #Covid_19 tem uma faceta política. É uma faceta real, com implicações reais. E mesmo que o sanitário seja o mais importante agora, convém não renunciar a tratar o tema. Eis um breve fio 5 ideias ao respeito 👇
1) A faceta política não existe por haver «apocalípticos» que insistam em assinalar os regimes ultraliberais. O assinalamento existe, com certeza, e não há dúvida de que há razões para o fazer, mas além disso, o #coronavirus é uma realidade política por si próprio. Porque...
2) No plano internacional, com a Itália a pedir ajuda à UE, a resposta foi o silêncio mais gritante. A União não abriu a boca nem ofereceu qualquer ajuda enquanto a Itália decretava regiões inteiras em quarentena e os contágios se estendiam por outros países. #ItaliaZonaRossa ➡️

A 10 años del #Terremoto2010 ocurrido en el Centro de #Chile, no tan solo cambió nuestra geografía, sino que fue objeto de estudio, avance #científico y #conocimiento en #sismología de terremotos.

En conmemoración del #megaterremoto, va el ➡️ #megaHILO 🇨🇱 sobre el #27F
Aunque ... ¿Qué sabíamos antes de este terremoto? ➡️ durante dos campañas de mediciones GPS entre 1996-1999, ya se conocía q entre #Concepción-#Constitución la región estaba madura para q ocurriera un gran sismo.
¡El último había ocurrido en 1835!, el famoso terremoto de #Darwin
Así, un grupo del @Dgf_uchile mostró que en esa zona habrían movimientos de 4 cm/año hacia el Este ➡️ nos acercábamos poco a poco a Argentina.
Miren las flechas apuntando hacia la derecha, son 13 estaciones GPS que se estaban moviendo en esa dirección, hasta #Santiago se movía!

Bernie is RIGHT -there is a dictatorship in #China & #Cuba AND also to remind that the US has helped overthrow governments in #Chile and #Guatemala.

Biden is WRONG: Obama and four previous US presidents supported the authoritarian regime of #Mubarak in #Egypt

#DemocraticDebate
Give it to him, Bernie!

There is NOTHING radical about wanting healthcare for everyone!

#DemocraticDebate
Want to talk who supports dictators & authoritarians?

Trump calls Sisi “my favourite dictator” & was in #India today encouraging fascism.

5 US presidents -GOP & Democrat- propped up Mubarak’s 30yr tyranny.
US has “good” & “bad” dictators #demdebates2020

People are making a fuss over the Cuba statements of @BernieSanders. Yes, Cuba is a dictatorship but there is good healthcare and good education. Can we sort the wheat from the chaff! The answer is "No" #econtwitter -- lets do the economics of dictatorships here
Dictators are utility-maximizers like you and I. What they maximize is the rents they extract from acquiring and holding on to power. They select the public goods to produce as a willful decision to continue rent extraction jstor.org/stable/4072669… #econtwitter
In essence, the public goods produced reflect the efforts to preserve the predatory features of the regime. academic.oup.com/jleo/article-a… #econtwitter

This is a picture of my wife's father. He was a doctor in #Cuba prior to #FidelCastro's 'revolution.' He owned a small hospital, and was famous for his willingness to provide free care to those who couldn't afford it. For this reason, Fidel decided to kill him and his family.
In his younger days, he actually knew #FidelCastro. They'd often ride the bus together on their way into the city. He didn't trust the young radical, and warned his family against associating with him.
After #fidelCastro's takeover, his willingness to help the less fortunate - outside of the federal system - made him a threat. Fidel would tolerate no one who could, or would, offer anything he was unwilling to provide.

So, he was marked for death.

NEW: US unveils revamped strategy for #counterintelligence

Instead of focusing on nation-state adversaries, new strategy "focuses on five key areas where foreign intelligence entities are hitting us hardest" per @NCSCgov Dir William Evanina
New #counterintelligence strategy to focus on:
-critical infrastructure
-key US supply chains
-US economy
-American democratic institutions
-cyber & technical ops

...per @NCSCgov
@NCSCgov Under new strategy, US counterintelligence counting on more help from the private sector for info & countermeasures

"W/the private sector & democratic institutions increasingly under attack, this is no longer a problem the US gvt can address alone" per @NCSCgov's Evanina

Este es el 5to hilo que escribo sobre el sistema de salud de #Cuba, con fotos, videos y datos.
Quiero hablar por los cubanos que en Cuba sufren a diario la carencia de medicamentos, de agua y de una buena atención en un hospital decente.
(Los otros 4 hilos están al final de este)
Ahora hay más cubanos que pierden el miedo a filmar y a tirar fotos en los hospitales. Por eso estamos viendo en estos tiempos lo que nunca se había visto, lo que era conocido sólo por los cubanos: el sistema de salud es un desastre.
Baño del hospital general de Placetas, #Cuba:
Hogar de ancianos Juan Le Font, municipio Cerro, #LaHabana.
Observen las condiciones de los enfermos y la cantidad de camas en la misma habitación. En los #hospitales de #Cuba no hay privacidad.

1. Imagine if #Ukraine has @SteveScalise's phone intercepts? I think they could likely buy them from someplace like #Cuba. @SenateGOP are you guys still glad you said that stuff is all okay? Just want to be sure. @senatemajldr @LindseyGrahamSC @joniernst @FBIWFO
2. Putin was able to control Trump & @senatemajldr #MoscowMitch is compromised via #Deripaska. But what would Putin do if he thought Trump was toast? Kiss & make up with @TheDemocrats? Show good faith by unleashing Typhoid Mary #LevParnas as #OperationTrump destruct mechanism?
3. Seems a wave is building as the trial tees up. Three Trump related plea deals in 24 hours. Lev handing out cell phones. Trump cold feet. At a minimum, all this creates uncertainty for the 18 @SenateGOP running in November. Let's ask them if they want to make it all go away.

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

Underestimating Cuba and Russia in Venezuela and the failure of Neo-Appeasement

5 years ago, the then Secretary of State John Kerry before heading to Venezuela on Aug 14, 2015 in an interview with @oppenheimera stated that "the United States & Cuba are talking about ways to solve the Venezuelan crisis." cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2020/01/undere… #Cuba #Russia #Venezuela 2/21
The situation in Venezuela continued to worsen, and the presence of the Castro regime only served to aggravate the situation in the South American country. cubanexilequarter.blogspot.com/2020/01/undere… #Cuba #Russia #Venezuela 3/21

@tutoquiroga es el primer posible candidato a las elecciones que presenta su "Propuesta #Bolivia 2020-2025".

La misma se basa en 4 puntos principales:
1) Reconstrucción económica
2) Reparación democrática
3) Bienestar Social
4) Proyección Internacional

#Analisis (Hilo 1/n)
1) RECONSTRUCCIÓN ECONÓMICA:
a. Utilizar nuestra envidiable posición geográfica para convertirnos en un "mega-canal de Panamá terrestre" por donde pasen gasoductos, líneas eléctricas, fibra óptica, CARRETERAS, puertos, aeropuertos que conecten a todos los países de Sudamérica.(2)
b. Convertirnos en el "Corazón verde de Sudamérica", principal proveedor de energía limpia. (3)

#1 Dá trabalho, mas os arquivos on line ensinam muito sobre temas atuais. Enquanto esteve no governo, o mesmo @ptbrasil que soltou nota em protesto pela morte do general #Soleimani, era frontalmente contra a designação do #Hezbollah como organização terrorista.
#2 O #Hezbollah é um grupo terrorista sediado no #Líbano, que é um dos tentáculos armados e de terror que #Soleimani comandava. Em 2012, o secretário de relações exteriores da organização Ammar al-Mousawi, esteve em #Cuba para um evento do #ForoDeSaoPaulo.
archive.alahednews.com.lb/details.php?id…
#3 O #ForoDeSaoPaulo, para quem não se lembra, é a agremiação de organizações de esquerda fundada por Fidel e @LulaOficial. Tem entre os membros organizações como as #FARC -- acreditem, a mais letal organização terrorista da história.

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony

The Black American Church vs. Eurocentric Christianity

A church birthed fourth out of the wildfires of slavery and #whitesupremacy becomes one of the oldest institutions opposed to racism in the world: #TheBlackChurch

#BlackChurchesMatter

Coming...
"Satan, Were Gonna' Tear Your Kingdom Down"
"If it has come about that today The Black Christ; has to be led into the field against The White Christ; by a young black poet, than a deep cleft in the church of Jesus Christ is indicated."
