The claims that Cubans have free medical and dental healthcare is a lie. One of my cousins was a dentist in Cuba, she and her daughter left Cuba. in
my stay in Cuba in the year 2000 one of my fillings fell off, and my cousin took me to her office to see if they had any fillings. They didn't. For
the three months or so I stayed there there were not fillings. If you were to check the smile of Cubans, except those who are blessed with good
teeth, the majority have bad teeth.
Cubans can't get braces for their teeth. There is a lack of any good toothpaste because you can only choose to buy between the really bad toothpaste
made in Cuba or a bar of soap a month per person. Most Cubans brush their teeth with the soap, and take showers with their soap when the government
allows the water company to send water to Cuban's homes. like in Venezuela, and like in other communist regimes, the government also rations
Don't fall from the lies of pro-socialists/pro-communists who claim the healthcare in Cuba is great. That's a lie. For crying out loud, in this
thread i showed some of the real hospitals regular Cubans have to use.
When you need an operation as a regular Cuban, even if you have appendicitis, or like one of my sisters had stones in her kidney and also an infection
because the quality of the water in Cuba is worse than the quality of the water in Mexico. Even with the infection the doctor was going to put her in
a wait list for 2-3 years to get treated and operated on. We, the family in the U.S., had to bribe the doctor first to move her up in the list
because she would have died if they waited that long, and then had to pay the doctor in U.S.D. (which was change din CUC over there) to do the
My other sister in Cuba needed to have her gall-bladder removed because she had 30 stones in it. She had been in pain for months and we had to bribe
her doctor also to get her operation done earlier, otherwise she would have died waiting 2-3 years. Then we had to pay for the doctor in U.S.D.
(which was changed to CUC over thee) to operate.
While at the hospital my sisters needed to bring to the hospital "everything" from the bed sheets, the pillow, to the medicine which we bought in the
U.S. and sent to Cuba.
The only hospitals that are fully stocked and with the latest in medical technology are hospitals for tourists, and for the top communist regime thugs
and their families. Regular Cubans cannot get access to these hospitals.
There are dozens and dozens of videos that have been smuggled out of Cuba showing the real conditions of hospitals in Cuba.
The claim that healthcare, education, dental hygiene etc in Cuba is great is a lie, a myth made up the regime and a myth swallowed like kool-aid by
the left around the world...
