Bolivia’s Morales Travels to Cuba for Medical Treatment

LA PAZ – Bolivian President Evo Morales on Wednesday made an emergency trip to Cuba to get medical treatment for a throat problem that has persisted for several weeks, a government official said.

Morales has a throat condition that “has become more complicated,” and thus while presiding at the weekly council of ministers meeting Wednesday morning he decided to travel to Havana to undergo a complete medical evaluation, Cabinet chief Rene Martinez told reporters.

Bolivian doctors attending Morales – who is “very hoarse,” the minister said – had suggested that he make the trip.

Martinez asked anyone having scheduled meetings with the president or who had been slated to participate in various events involving him for their “understanding regarding this emergency health issue” that will cause Morales to be out of the country.

The minister did not say how long Morales will remain in Cuba, but he did remark that in two days he will have information about the president’s condition and said that he hoped he would be able to carry out his agenda regarding international events that have been scheduled over the coming days.

Several days ago, Morales began exhibiting throat problems while delivering speeches and making statements to the media, but he also attended assorted Carnival events and tried to adhere to his pre-scheduled agenda.

Morales, as usual, presided on Wednesday morning over the weekly council of ministers meeting, where he was asked by his Cabinet officers to go to Cuba for treatment.
