The Cuban Doctor Convicted of Negligence Points Out That the Patient’s Death Was Inevitable

14ymedio bigger14ymedio, Madrid, January 30, 2024 — Ristian Solano, the doctor at the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes hospital in Bayamo (Granma) who was sentenced to three years of deprivation of liberty for negligence resulting in death, has broken his silence.
