Since the onset of the epidemic, Venezuelan doctors have condemned the dangerous conditions facing the corona virus. For this reason, in addition to the humanitarian crisis that has already occurred across the country, the Department of Health announced this Sunday’s protest measures for this week.
Health workers are trying “Full payment of what is agreed in the contract document.”
Monroe Salut General Coordinator Moro Sambirano, Explained on his social networks What will be the agenda of the protesters running from Tuesday to Thursday.
The following Tuesday, July 6, health workers “will protest at 9 a.m. at the doors of the hospitals where they work.” The next day, they will march to the Ministry of Health at the same time.
Thursday, meanwhile, will be “sitting down, nobody working” day, Denying the conditions under which Venezuelan health workers have to deal with the epidemic.
This call takes place a week later, From June 22 to 28, the NDO Medicos Unidos de Venezuela (MUV) reported 14 dead health workers “with criteria for Covit-19”, bringing the death toll from the outbreak to 683.
“The June 28 report received information on 14 new deaths of health workers, reaching 683 deaths, with criteria for Covit-19,” the NGO condemned on its Twitter account, in which they emphasize that Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship has claimed 3,000 deaths since the outbreak. Figures questioned by the opposition and much of the international community from the outset demand greater transparency in information and official data on the true impact of the corona virus in the country.
Faced with this situation, the organization underlined one of Savismo’s classic slogans. In Venezuela the “death of health workers” is “at the pace of conquerors” and “without a control strategy”.
Among the dead were five surgeons, six nurses, a biologist, a dentist and a union leader, the organization reiterated, adding that their reports were “based on clinical, epidemiological, radiological and laboratory criteria.”
They also explained that their numbers were “not necessarily included in official reports”, so they publish these lists “with the intention of preventing employees and avoiding failures.”
Laura State (3) tops the list with the highest number of deaths in these seven days, followed by Julia (2), Bolivar (2), Falcon (2), Portugal (1), Nueva Esparta (1), Caracas (1), Carabobo (1) and Curico (1).
In this way, the northwestern state of Julia is the region where the highest number of health workers have died due to Govt-19 since the outbreak of the epidemic (138), followed by Caracas (95) and 18 others who lost the war in Miranda, which covers a good part of the metropolitan area.
On June 16, one year after the first health worker died from Covit-19 in Venezuela, a doctor named Samuel Viloria from Julia. According to the complaints of his colleagues, he should not be on the first line of infection as he is being treated for kidney transplant surgery.
Since then, they have complained that they do not have adequate protective equipment and that some people still do not have access to vaccines.
Regarding the vaccine, A few days ago the Venezuelan Medical Association asked people not to “pay” for the Cuban vaccine during the Abdala tests, Demonstrating that it is a “test biological product”, the Maduro regime announced the arrival of an unspecified number of this drug after last week.
“Abdala is not a vaccine. It is an experimental biological product not approved by the Cuban Drug Control Center or the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). ” Douglas Leon Nadera, Quoted in a press release.
He emphasized that the letter was not a signal of a formal antitrust inquiry into Covit-19, but rather a signal of a formal antitrust inquiry into the allegations. “Venezuelan citizens are not guinea pigs and the medical association warns people not to be vaccinated with that vaccine, which is not a vaccine,” he added.
According to the doctor, the announcement of the arrival of the drug was “another business with the Castro-Communist administration of the Venezuelan government.”
According to Leon Nadora, The Savista dictatorship “wants to impose political-social control” and “does not care about playing with the life of Venezuela.”
The announcement of Abdala’s visit to Venezuela has caused concern in the health community, arguing that it can no longer be considered a vaccine, mainly due to the lack of WHO accreditation.
The Venezuelan government last Thursday signed an agreement with Cuba for 12 million doses of Abdala, which it says will arrive in the country in the coming months.
