Life in Cuba: No access to medicine or healthcare, no water, and no electricity during record-breaking heatwave

Life is hell for most Cubans. Four news stories posted online today give us a glimpse of exactly how hellish that life is.

The first of these stories concerns the lack of medications and — surprise, surprise — the lack of access to medical care. Despite all of its boasting about being a “medical powerhouse”, the real truth is that Castro, Inc.’s healthcare system is abysmally dysfunctional.

A recent survey has revealed that 80.3% of Cubans surveyed said access to medications was “extremely difficult” or “impossible,” and 57.6% said the same about access to medical care. A whopping 91.2% admitted suffering from acute anxiety and 86.7% admitted feeling depressed.

As if to prove the accuracy of this survey, a related story reports the death of an infant due to medical negligence in Camaguey.

The third story relates how the same survey indicates that 82.5% of Cubans residing on the island are concerned about the lack of food in the country. This insufficiency has even caused 70.8% of the households those surveyed to choose between eating much less at each meal or skipping meals altogether.

The fourth story details how Cubans are dealing with a severe heatwave without running water and electricity, with absolutely no hope of relief. Temperatures in the high 90’s F have shattered records throughout the island.

And all of these woes are only part of a much longer list of hellish problems: political repression, uncontrollable epidemics, fuel shortages, lack of public transportation, rampant inflation, and crumbling homes, but to name a few.

Vamos bien! If you are a masochist (and perhaps also a sociopath), remember to vote Socialist Democrat in 2024.

Hey, stop it! Unfair! Socialism is wonderful. These problems are caused by “the blockade”
