The Villa Clara University of Medical Sciences has decided to suspend face-to-face classes for most of its students due to the country’s energy crisis, the institution said.
The situation has forced the institute to reorganize “the teaching processes of all the professions and training developed in the institution during the energy contingency period provided by the country”.

Fuel shortages have been felt in the country in recent weeks, despite the government’s pledge to end the acute energy crisis. Governor-designate Miguel Díaz-Canel confirmed last Friday that fuel shortages on Cuban territory are due to “incompatibility” of supply countries that are overcoming a “complicated energy situation.”
“This is (due) not to a lack of companies or problems, but to the non-compliance of the countries that supply us,” he said. On the other hand, the island has to deal with the obsolescence of power plants, which often present difficulties in distribution.
Cuba imports almost all of the oil it consumes and the use of this raw material is aimed at power generation. Fuel has been sourced in recent decades from Venezuela and Russia, key allies of the communist regime in Havana.
Cubans experienced a critical phase last year with blackouts lasting more than 12 hours in various cities across the country, a situation that began to improve in December and worsened again a few months later.

“A country that cannot build anything. All in disaster. So this year should be better, says Díaz-Canel. Cubans continue to ignore the prosperity they proclaim. “As horrible as it was to be born in Cuba, how happy I will be when I leave Cuba,” said one user.
“Union Electrica, we’re back to the same thing, we’re running out of Turkish or Algerian oil, we’re justifying it again with statistics that no one believes and repairs that last or don’t last. We’ve failed again to live up to the wording that the blackout will only last three hours and we’re already going eight hours,” he said. said another Cuban.
