Cuba has been able to send thousands of doctors and nurses overseas to help other countries fight COVID-19.

That is because the island nation has had huge success containing the virus domestically, with a rigorous active screening campaign and strict restrictions.

Since the pandemic began, the country has recorded just more than 2,400 cases and fewer than 100 deaths.
