The water crisis continues to affect Venezuelans day after day, and the lack of adequate service continues to expose them to diseases and dangers such as Covid-19.
In Anzoátegui State, residents reported that water service through pipes arrives unexpectedly, and if they are not able to get it, they must wait for rain or walk long distances in search of wells or ponds unfit for consumption.
“We are all suffering from the lack of water. Water is coming once a week or not at all. We are drinking water from the rain,” said Janet Villarroel, a resident of Barcelona
Similarly, Yoli Castillo reported that water may reach their homes very early morning and without warning, making it even more difficult to get a supply.
“First time in history we are going through this crisis,” she insisted.
The precariousness of the service in the state and in the rest of the country has sickened hundreds of citizens who have had to drink water not suitable for consumption.
Added to this problem are electrical problems, lack of transport, hyperinflation that does not allow the purchase of the food basket and the health crisis. All of this is driven by Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
