The regime hides the true death toll in Venezuela from COVID-19 and the curve continues to grow, and it refuses to allow vaccines to enter the country to immunize and protect the population against the virus through the COVAX strategy.
This was made clear in the press conference of the deputies of the legitimate National Assembly, when they took stock of the tour they made through different states of the country, to carry the message about the need to hold free elections which allow the necessary political change to get out of the crisis faced by Venezuelans.
The deputy for the state of Mérida William Dávila, stated that during the tour of the states of Vargas, Zulia, Monagas, Falcón, Carabobo and Anzoátegui, the situation in the hospitals is dantesque.
“The hospitals in those states that we visited have no supplies, no biosafety equipment and above all, how our health heroes die, because so far only 20 percent of healthcare workers have been vaccinated, even though 25 percent of those killed by the virus are from that sector,” said the deputy from Merida.
He maintained that the regime assured that as of this Monday, vaccination began for people 60 years of age and older, but the vaccines are not yet in the country. “We demand that the vaccines be distributed equally to everyone without any kind of political preference and that the established patterns be followed.”
He stressed that the regime violated the UN regulations of the World Health Organization and began to vaccinate only those around them: governors, mayors and their teams, the deputies of the spurious AN, members of the repressive agencies at the expense of leaving the general population without vaccines, especially those in the healthcare sector.
While the deputy for the State Lara Macario González, ratified the commitment that the legitimate National Assembly has through the Delegate Commission to be on the street complying with the mandate of the Bolivarian Constitution of Venezuela, to fight for the reestablishment of the validity of democracy and accompanying the Venezuelan people in the face of the complex humanitarian crisis.
Deputy María Gabriela Hernández referred to the ecological disaster in the country caused by the irresponsibility of the Oil, Gas and Gold Industry, under the control of the dictatorship, as these affect the country’s natural resources such as water, rivers and lakes, seas, atmosphere and soils, that is, about the life, health and well-being of Venezuelans.
“The refineries near the coasts as El Palito, Cardón, etc. continue to spill hydrocarbons into the sea. Pollution by other factors in Lake Valencia affects more than 3 million people. We urge the Venezuelan people to unite our forces, our will to dislodge the regime from the structures of power in Venezuela and to be able to restore the national constitution and the guarantees for the reconstruction of the country.”
Deputy Oneiber Peraza, said that the important thing at this time is to reach an agreement that allows solving this problem in peace and democracy. “It is the responsibility of those in the spheres of power to give answers to the country. We must be unified, it is our commitment.”
Finally, the deputy for Lara State, Luis Florido said that in the face of the multidimensional crisis facing the Venezuelan people, a political solution is imperative. This involves the approval by all political factors through a national agreement, the participation of the international community, and the pressure mechanisms.
“Venezuela does not need dialogues, but agreements and that is where we must be united to press and achieve a political solution for the country. The participation of the International Community is important to achieve a political solution by exerting the necessary pressure mechanisms.”
