Radio Martí broadcast today an interview with Ismely Iglesias Martínez, the independent doctor who tends to Guillermo Fariñas since the latter started his hunger strike more than two months ago.

The doctor told Radio Martí that Fariñas has a new infection that is causing him to have a high and constant fever upward of 40º C [104º F], and that he is not currently being fed intravenously. According to Iglesias, this last factor can cause him hypotension that can lead to a heart attack. The low blood pressure readings have been present since they [the medical personnel] discontinued the use of a catheter.

Ismely has called on the Cuban government to listen to Fariñas’s demands of freeing twenty six political prisoners who are also in precarious health.
