The Presidential Commissioner for Emergency Health and Migrant Health Care, José Manuel Olivares, reiterated that Nicolás’ regime has no control over the Covid-19 pandemic in Venezuela and that, in addition to lying to Venezuelans about the number of cases in the country, it harasses citizens who are infected.
“Today we see him in despair setting up a makeshift hospital in the Poliedro of Caracas in the face of the truth of the suffering of our patients, the painful truth of death, the truth of the collapse of the health system, the truth that 65 percent of intensive care is already collapsed, 52 percent of emergencies are already collapsed,” he said this Friday.
Olivares explained that more than 80% of the hotels where they are placing patients in Caracas are already over capacity. The hospital capacity in Caracas is overflowing among patients with Covid-19.
He also said that health workers continue to die. 37 people, including doctors, nurses and health personnel, have lost their lives because they do not have the necessary biosafety equipment to care for infected citizens.
“More than 120 people, health personnel, are positive for Covid-19,” he added.
The also deputy of the National Assembly reminded that there is an outbreak of infection in the headquarters of the National Armed Forces and that the soldiers are suffering the fear that the common Venezuelan suffers from the coronavirus.
“Today, Nicolás Maduro does not protect anyone, only they have shown off their diseases, diagnoses and all the luxuries they have given themselves to be treated while our soldiers and Venezuelans are still afraid at home,” he said.
The commissioner recalled that the dictatorship continues to prosecute the pandemic. He also denounced that the dictatorship marks houses in Táchira where infected people live and threatens the soldiers of the Armed Forces.
“It is not police style management that will solve the crisis, it is a National Emergency Government with internal and external confidence that will generate real solutions for Venezuelans,” he concluded.
“No es el manejo policial lo que va a solucionar la crisis es un Gobierno de Emergencia Nacional con confianza interna y externa que genere soluciones reales a los venezolanos”, concluyó.
