The writer must be a Trotskyist because the failure of Cuba is not the failure of Stalinism, it is the failure of capitalism, the same one that existed in the Soviet Union since 1917 presided by Lenin and Trotsky.

The Cuban government requests aid from other countries as well as from the Catholic charity Caritas International.
Kilian Linder, Caritas project officer in Cuba explained, “There are more doctors per inhabitant than in Germany and Cuba has often provided medical care in emergency situations.” For the government to eat humble pie and ask for help, he said, showed how drastic it thought the situation was.
Caritas flew in personal protective equipment (PPE), face masks, ventilators, testing kits and medicine to Cuba as fast as possible. Russia has also sent 88 tons of humanitarian aid, including food, and China has provided 30 ventilators and plans to send more equipment. Venezuela sent food by ship. Mexico also sent a ship with food and oxygen with two more expected to follow.
