The United Nations has called on the rest of the world to follow Cuba's example.
On Wednesday the U.S. government said it is ready to cooperate with Cuba to tackle the Ebola spread that has killed more than 4,500 people in several West African nations.
“We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with Cuba to face this Ebola outbreak,” a U.S. official told EFE news agency.
The source also praised Cuba’s commitment against the Ebola outbreak. Havana is sending hundreds of doctors and health workers to Africa to battle the virus.
Last month, the United Nations praised Cuba’s support and called to the rest of the world to follow Cuba’s example.
U.S. Cameraman Released from Hospital
Also Wednesday, Ashoka Mukpo, a U.S. citizen who contracted Ebola while working as a freelance cameraman in Liberia, will leave the Nebraska hospital where he was admitted 16 days ago.
“Recovering from Ebola is a truly humbling feeling. Too many are not as fortunate and lucky as I’ve been. I’m very happy to be alive,” Said Mukpo, 33, in a statement.
The cameraman, who at the moment he contracted Ebola was working for NBC, was treated with blood of Dr Kent Bradley.
