|Chilean actress and Communist activist Carolina Cox during better times|
The Cautious Optimism Correspondent for Left Coast Affairs and Other Inexplicable Phenomena detours to the left coast of South America to follow an actress’ hard lesson about real life under communism.
"Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to avoid the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), a luxury that is not possible in Cuba, as soap is scarce... ....Although advocates of the communist regime advertise it as a medical power, the reality is that since December, for example, there are no sanitary pads for the menstrual cycle ."
"Cox calls for help, since several of the Chileans stranded in Cuba need medication, thus breaking the myth that everything on the island is free. The reality is that even with resources, there is no access, as credit cards do not serve them on the island."

The Left Coast Correspondent doesn’t know whether to criticize or feel sympathy towards Carolina Cox, the young Chilean actress and communist activist presently stranded in Cuba.
After vising Cuba to document how superior communism is to the Chilean system she has routinely criticized, international travel was locked down to prevent the disease from spreading and her stay in paradise has been extended indefinitely. Dreary details of her living conditions can be read in the attached article.
If, heaven forbid, she gets sick one wonders how much the Cuban medical system can do for her. She doesn’t have Michael Moore and a film crew to win government access to Havana’s sole world-class Potemkin Village hospital and would have to use the same facilities as everyday Cubans.
Here she is pleading for help on YouTube—help from the very Chilean government she previously accused of terrorism. Be sure to use CC translation to English.
