With food shortages in Cuba worsening and no hope the communist dictatorship can or will do anything about it, it appears Cubans are now resorting to cannibalism.
The Provincial Health Department of Santiago de Cuba has confirmed a rumor circulating since Friday on social media: Police in that province are investigating a possible case of trafficking in human organs from the deceased at the Ambrosio Portuondo Surgical Clinical Hospital in the town of El Cobre.
“It is confirmed that two hospital employees who work in the morgue and in occupational therapy were detained on December 9, 2022 for the alleged crime of stealing two hearts possibly of human origin,” said the state entity on its Facebook page.
According to the statement, the suspects are “under investigation by the National Revolutionary Police and a local health commission to clarify the incident.”
The statement from the Santiago Health Department came in response to Yannis Estrada, a Cuban who posted the following on Twitter this past Friday: “Terrorizing and disgusting! An employee of Ambrosio Grillo Hospital, located very close to the El Cobre Sanctuary, has been convicted and sentenced to 30 years in prison after it was learned he was extracting organs and body fat from the dead to grind it and sell it as ground beef.”
This gruesome and disturbing news illustrates how socialism destroys societies and pushes its victims to do the most heinous acts just to survive. This is socialism in action.
