Venezuela is the Latin American country that has received the least number of vaccines, only 2 percent of the population has been immunized so far, while the regime lies to the country when it assures that by October it will have the pandemic under control.
This was stated by the Deputy for Lara State, Luis Florido, during a meeting with the community of the Jiménez Municipality in Barquisimeto, together with Deputy Guillermo Palacios and the local leader Juan Balsa in order to bring a message of hope, that states that all united have to face the regime, and demand reliable and free elections to get out of the serious crisis that Venezuelans are experiencing worsened by the global pandemic of COVID-19.
“Venezuela is the country that has received the least vaccines, only 2 percent of the population has been vaccinated. This is a regime that does nothing but propaganda, this is the regime of lies, of poverty, which has massacred the people, because one way to kill the people is to take away economic opportunities to starve them, deny them vaccines and take away the opportunities so that people to die of sadness,” remarked the Lara deputy.
However, he assured that this is a country that hopes for change through the opposition, the deputies of the legitimate National Assembly, and the interim president Juan Guaidó, who continue to fight, who “light the flame of freedom” with every walk and tour that he makes throughout Venezuela.
Regarding vaccines, Deputy Florido highlighted that, according to statistics from international health organizations, such as ‘Our World In Data’, in Latin America an average of 20 percent of the population has been vaccinated, while in Venezuela only 2 percent of its citizens have been vaccinated.
Florido indicated that the document states that in the country barely between 20 and 30 thousand daily doses are applied, when about 150 thousand should be applied to be within the region’s average. “At this rate of vaccination, it would take more than 50 years to achieve the immunization of 70 percent of the population.”
He recalled that of the 10 million doses of the Sputnik V vaccine promised by Nicolás Maduro’s regime and his clique, only 15 percent have reached the country. While the number of infections and the demand for ICUs is on the rise in Venezuela.
“Until now, the percentage of healthcare personnel immunized, as well as the prioritized groups, is unknown. On the other hand, people called to be vaccinated have to face long lines and crowds that increase the risks of contagion and, on the other hand, the application of the second dose is not being fulfilled.”
He added that the regime uses the pandemic to exercise social control through the use of the ‘Patria’ platform, by giving vaccination priority to Venezuelans who have the ‘Patria Card’ a political and social control instrument.
“The solution to put an end to deaths and infections by Covid-19 of the population is a mass vaccination plan, organized and directed by national and international health organizations, and publishing the real numbers of infected and deceased, not the madeup statistics that the regime shows to deceive the population and purport that the pandemic is in decline, while hospitals collapse due to infections and deaths.”
