United Workers Party extends condolences on passing of Cuban medical worker in Dominica

Yoet Michel Ramos Corzero, deceased member of the Cuban Medical Brigade

The United Workers Party (UWP) has extended sincere condolences to the government and people of Cuba and the family of  Yoet Michel Ramos Corzero, a member of The Henry Reeve Cuban Medical Brigade.

Corzero, 42, died while serving the people of Dominica in the fight against COVID-19.

In a letter to Cuban Ambassador to Dominica, His Excellency Ulises Arranz Fernandez, Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, states that  Corzero’s sacrificial service in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is deserving of the profound gratitude of our Dominican people.

“The United Workers Party stands with the Cuban Nation as it mourns the loss of this young Health Care Service Provider. We respectfully note that Cuba continues to contribute meaningfully to health care on the African Continent, Latin America, the Caribbean and Dominica for which the people of these regions will be eternally thankful.  May his soul rest in peace.”

He said Cuba’s tremendous contributions to humanity in times of crisis shall never be forgotten.

The Cuban medical team which arrived in Dominica on March 29th consisted of 35 members who are now working at the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) and the Hospital in Portsmouth, providing care for COVID–19 patients.

They also assist in quarantine centres created for suspected cases and will be involved in the community survey phase that will soon begin on the island.

There has been no public announcement regarding Corzero’s cause of death.

Below is the full text of Linton’s letter to the Cuban Embassy.

      The embarrassing thing to me as a God fearing person is to hear use God’s name in your nonsense. God’s way is righteousness, peace, love for all and so forth. You support Lies, unrighteousness, corruption, evil ungodliness and really, all the attributes of Satan and the devil. Only if by gods way you are referring to your ungodly god Skerrit or his gods.

    As a political party they did the right thing because after all Cuba sent 35 of them to help us deal with 17 cases. But since I am not a UWp, neither freedom or the Skerrit party, I am very interested about the truth surrounding his death and the real cause of death. With Cuba being a dark country like Skerrit, Venezuela, China, Russia and all the dark countries of the world I know they going to all say he died from a massive heart attack and that will settle everything. But I hope he didn’t die from Covid-19 because that would be very, very disturbing for us as just about everyone one of our local Medical staff would have to be tested for COVID-19. So let’s hope he didn’t die from Covid-19, though Dr. McIntyre said enough to make us believe something is cooking.

      Cualquiera que haya sido su causa, en Cuba lamentamos su muerte. Te pido dejes de hablar tanta …… señalando mi país como algo oscuro y que si es como no se quién o como tal. Mira como un pequeño país y embargado por el gobierno de los Estados Unidos da lo que tiene nunca lo que le sobra y si realmente Yoel fallecio2 pues lamentamos su pérdida mas todos nuestro gloriosos medicos cumplen un principio elemental que es el de la solidaridad. Y no hables tanta ……ok???
