      “It is an immunomodulatory peptide, derived from the cellular stress response protein, known as HSP60. This molecule was designed by bioinformatic tools and is obtained by chemical synthesis,” affirmed CIGB’s researcher Dr. Gillian Martinez Donato.

      According to Martinez, CIGB-258 operates in the regulation of the immune system. This protein increases its concentration during viral infections and inflammatory processes.

      The CIGB requested the use of CIGB-258 in COVID confirmed patients in the severe and critical stages. Since May 5, 31 patients had received therapy with this peptide.

      As Donato explained, 12 patients started CIGB-258 therapy intheir severe stages and 19 in the critical disease phase. In the first group, survival was 92 percent, while in the second group it was 73 percent.

      Cuba has so far recorded nearly 1,900 coronavirus cases with 79 deaths, according to a John Hopkins University tally.

      Health officials announced 13 additional Covid-19 cases Wednesday without any new fatalities.

      People diagnosed with the coronavirus in Cuba are required to receive treatment at hospitals, and wearing masks in public is mandatory.

      Since the outbreak began in the island, it has been shut down to everyone but returning citizens and residents.

      Despite the apparent success of Cuba’s efforts, government officials have said they have no plans to lift the quarantine and country will likely remain on lockdown through June.

      The Cubans could cure Covid 19 and the US Government would suppress the news and spread total lies saying the exact opposite. It is  worse than shameful. I really believe this.

        And Cuba would give it to the rest of the world and still our government would deny it works.

        We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

        If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.

        Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
