HAVANA TIMES — Some 80 cancer patients have been without their radiation treatment for two months due to inoperative equipment, reports Fernando Ravsberg on Thursday with information provided by sources at the Almejeiras Hospital in Centro Habana.
The linear accelerator of the ionizing radiation machine has been broken and the Health Ministry finally purchased a replacement that arrived in Havana on December 16.
The part needed to fix the machine has been sitting in Cuban customs for over three weeks and nobody has even bothered to go pick it up.
The negligence of the official involved “is the true face of the Cuban bureaucracy,” said Ravsberg, adding that he would not reveal the name… for now.
