The maintenance personnel, in the public educational establishments of Táchira State, denounced that they do not have the necessary supplies to carry out the proper cleaning required to disinfect the different areas in schools.
Furthermore, they assure that since before the pandemic began they have not received materials and supplies to clean the educational facilities where hundreds of children attend classes every day.
“There is no chlorine, there is no soap, there are no mops, there are no brooms,” denounced María Rincón, a janitor at a school in Táchira.
Likewise, they added that they are exposed to Covid-19 because they do not have biosafety equipment. In addition, they pointed out that the salary they earn is not even enough to eat.
For her part, Yanina Medina, who is also a maintenance worker at an educational campus, indicated that she earns 3 bolivars a week, which is not even $ 3 a month.
Added to this dramatic situation is the poor condition of the school infrastructure that puts the lives of students, teachers and cleaning staff at risk.
