Cuba Drug Key To Coronavirus Fight

China Thinks It Is!!
   Today -- March 17, 2020 -- the popular news source CounterPunch has a major article entitled "Cuba's Contribution to Combatting COVID-19". It is written by the Cuban and Latin American expert at the University of Glasgow, Helen Yaffe. The long article begins with this update:
         "COVID-19 began in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late December 2019 and by January 2020 it had hit Hubei province like a tital wave, swirling over China and rippling out overseas. Among the 30 medicines the Chinese National Health Commission selected to fight the virus was a Cuban anti-viral drug Interferon Alpha 2B. This drug has been produced in China since 2003, by the enterprise ChangHeber, a Cuban-Chinese joint venture. Cuban Interferon Alpha 2B has proven effective for viruses with characteristics similar to those of COVID-19."
      Including China, at least 15 other nations have contacted Cuba requesting Heberon Alfa B to combat COVID-19.
      As of March 17-2020 Cuba reports that it has "5 Confirmed Cases" of the Coronavirus and "388 Suspicious Cases."
