Hemophilic patients in Nueva Esparta State are at great risk because of the lack of medication and also because they are highly susceptible to Covid-19. On Margarita Island, more than 300 such patients are at risk of irreversible physical deterioration caused by lack of medicines.
The Association of Hemophiliacs of the State, assured that for more than two years Nicolás Maduro’s regime and the Ministry for Health, have not invested in the acquisition of medicines.
“70% of our population has irreversible joint damage. That is why we call on the country’s authorities to comply with Articles 83, 84 and 85 of the Constitution and to make the respective purchases and distribution of the different quality factors such as factor 8, factor 9, among others,” said the President of the Hemophiliac Association of Nueva Esparta, Ana Carolina Sotillo.
On the other hand, the island state has also been affected by the spread of the Coronavirus, which has taken the lives of several Venezuelans.
The Legitimate Government of President (E) Juan Guaidó, has constantly reiterated that Nicolás Maduro’s regime lies about the number of cases of Coronavirus in the state of Nueva Esparta and that they have no way to control the epidemic.
