Cuba will not be able to acquire pulmonary ventilators from several of its usual suppliers as two firms manufacturing this medical equipment have been purchased by a US company. These devices are key elements in the care of serious and critical cases of COVID-19.

The company Medicuba, exporter and importer for the Ministry of Public Health, was notified that IMT Medical AG and Acutronic manufacturers had been acquired by the US company Vyaire Medical Inc., based in Illinois, and therefore informed that "the corporate guideline we have today is to suspend all business relations with Medicuba."

The denunciation was made on the Twitter account of the General Director of Latin America and the Caribbean of the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Minrex), Eugenio Martínez Enríquez.

Several suppliers informed #Cuba MEDICUBA company that they could not deliver contracted pulmonary ventilators because IMT MEDICAL AG and ACUTRONIC manufacturers had been purchased by Vyaire Medical Inc, a company based in Illinois, USA and the blockade prevents them from doing so.
