A lot of Cubans are white. They just happen to speak Spanish as a first language.  I find it fascinating how many people think that because someone speaks Spanish as a fist language, it means they are not white.

Central and South America have white people all over the place. shiat, Uruguay's population is about 90% white.

Well, the aristocracy at least
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/4​/​19/cuba-has-a-new-leader-and-its-not-a​-castro Most Afro-Cubans are doing far less well than European descended Cubans.

Who'd'a'thunk it?  Marxism retains aristocracies.   Cuba has a huge market for medical tourism for Europeans who want cheap care their own systems won't or don't provide.   Cubans still wait for hours to get produce and other basics.  No, it's not the embargo.   It's the system.  Most of the Cuban real (as in not official) economy is expats sending U.S. dollars home.

If it proves effective, great! I have zero problem with Cuba becoming a manufacturer of effective medicine. I am tickled pink if they can do so, and do so at scale and make it available in ways out IP laden approach limits. I'd be happy if it effective and they are only able to supplement world distribution. I wonder what the vaccine hesitancy is there?

Is it still dial up? If they need phone cords that will be miles of fiber optic.

Next to zero.  Cuba's always been serious farking business about promoting health initiatives like vaccines.  Health stuff in general, really.  Castro was an interesting dude - very much a 1950's communist ideologue, but one of the few that appeared to genuinely hold to those principles in some cases.  Health stuff for the masses was very much one of those things.

/they're kinda a name in vaccine research and production - were pre-Covid
//their dude Sierra has come up with some shiat that no one else really has
///and it's been effective

So Cuba can produce vaccines (multiples even), but Canada cannot.
