doctors were in the front lines in the fight against cholera in Haiti and against Ebola in West Africa 10 years ago.

For the first time, Cuba has sent an emergency contingent to Italy, one of the ’s richest countries, demonstrating the reach of its medical diplomacy.

Speaking on Saturday shortly before the doctor’s departure, Leonardo Fernandez, a 68-year-old intensive care specialist, Leonardo Fernandez, told Reuters:

“We are all afraid but we have a revolutionary duty to fulfill, so we take out fear and put it to one side.

“He who says he is not afraid is a superhero, but we are not superheroes, we are revolutionary doctors.”

Fernandez said this would be his eighth international mission, including one in Liberia during the fight against Ebola.

This is the sixth medical practitioners Cuba has sent in recent days to combat the spread of the new disease abroad. It has sent contingents to socialist allies Venezuela and Nicaragua as well as Jamaica, Suriname and Grenada.
