    Small Caribbean island sends dozens of doctors to Italy, where they are needed most. And this despite 60 years of sanctions and embargo
    from the US..................Viva Cuba

    The American government has recently expanded sanctions against Cuba and Iran..........even during a pandemic

    Boris Johnson refuses to buy ventilators from existing manufacturers or use the EU procurement scheme and instead hands massive contracts to pro- #brexit Tory donors; JCB and the tax-cheat Dyson, who have never before made a ventilator.

    It's like millions to a ferry company with no ferries all over again, except people will die.

    Johnson declines to join EU buying scheme, as UK suppliers say their offers were ignored

    Downing Street has declined to take part in an EU scheme to source life-saving ventilators to treat coronavirus because the UK is “making our own efforts”.

    Critics accused Boris Johnson of putting “Brexit over breathing” after No 10 said it did not need to participate in the EU effort to procure equipment to fight coronavirus.

    Labour MP David Lammy said: “Why on earth would we not take part in an EU scheme to procure ventilators that we were invited to be part of? I sincerely hope there is a good reason and No 10 is not putting ideology ahead of people’s lives.”

    It doesn't fit the "they need us more than we need them" narrative <doh>
