Exposing Cuba’s abysmal health care
ABC Spain has published an article today, "The false myth of Cuban Health Care," which argues that the only real success that can be claimed for the Cuban medical system is the official propaganda that the Castro regime has disseminated about it.
The best phrase: "The myth of Cuban health care is crumbling as quickly as its dilapidated hospitals."
This won't surprise anyone who has lived in Cuba or still has relatives on the island. But it might come as a surprise to others. Without a doubt, some readers in Spain and Latin America will dismiss it as mere opinion or else as false counterpropaganda cooked up by a fascist newspaper.

The Castro regime manipulates health care statistics.

Those doctors who do stay in Cuba routinely accept gifts and bribes, and these under-the-table payments are often the only way to ensure proper care.
