30 Cuban Doctors Defect in Bolivia

Update 7/11: Via The Devil's Excrement the stunning admission that more than 4,000 Cuban doctos have defected out of Venezuela. H/T Babalú

Via and The Real Cuba, it seems 30 of the 1,000 Cuban doctors sent to Bolivia have taken refuge in Santa Cruz - the same city that overwhelmingly voted for autonomy.

The doctors are being harbored by free Cubans who reside in Bolivia while they wait to see what happens. Most interestingly, they reported that more than 500 Cuban doctors have already defected in Venezuela.
