Cuba Produces Working Vaccine, Abdala, Competing With Top Most Vaccines

Cuba has been striving to be self-reliant in regards to the Covid vaccine. This has apparently worked. They named it  Abdala after a poem by Jose Marti. In the poem, Abdala the young hero heads to war to defend his fatherland. Probably this is how they see the vaccine right now as well and they may be right.

This vaccine was developed by a now star scientist, Geraldo Enrique Guillen Nieto. He has been heading the team that worked tirelessly to see that this vaccine becomes essential and effective.

“We have worked full time since the beginning of the pandemic, every Saturday, every Sunday, from early in the morning until late at night, without even a moment’s rest and we are very euphoric because the results have exceeded all our expectations. We knew the vaccine was very good, but not even I expected such a result,” Guillen says.

The vaccine has proven 92.28% effective against covid-19 according to a state-run biotech corporation. This has put it in the league of the most effective vaccines.

Guillen noted that Cubans never make it hard to make trials on them when it comes to drugs. Even for the vaccine, people also turned out in great numbers for the clinical trials.

“Here there is an unprecedented level of trust in the Cuban health system. For example, we never have problems finding volunteers when it comes to clinical trials. In Cuba, people are extremely eager to be vaccinated. No one here would think of not getting inoculated because everyone knows how important vaccinations are.”

This vaccine is very important for Cubans because the virus is really tormenting them. They register a total of 2000 cases daily which is very alarming.

Jose Moya, the representative of WHO in Cuba says they have tried and tested the results of this vaccine.

“The CIGB Research Institute has 30 years of experience in vaccine research. I trust the results that have been published. These are serious studies, with the participation of researchers and institutions committed to science.”
