                          Venezuela registers one deceased and 156 cases of coronavirus in the last 24 hours # 2Jun
                          Text by Ronny Rodríguez Rosas

                          Coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours in Venezuela were 156 and the country reached 1,819 COVID-19 infections. In addition, one deceased was registered in this period and the country now has 18 fatal victims of the disease.

                          The Minister of Communication and Information of Nicolás Maduro, Jorge Rodríguez, detailed that of this number six were by community transmission and 150 imported and by contact with international travelers.

                          “We have a challenge that I would say that none of the country in the world has. We are a care island surrounded by the new epicenter of the pandemic: Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, all of our southern neighbors are showing exponential growth in their COVID-19 contagion curve, ”Rodríguez reiterated.

                          The official did not report where the states came from in community cases. Of the internationals, he said that 138 came from Colombia, three from Ecuador and two from Peru. In addition, nine were by contact with the staff who attend Venezuelan migrants at the border.

                          One deceased: Venezuela has 18 victims for COVID-19

                          The person who died was an 83-year-old man from Caracas. He lived in El Recreo parish and had type II diabetes, kidney failure and other ailments associated with the first disease.

                          On May 19 he went to a clinic for respiratory failure. On May 21, they detected COVID-19. He was transferred from a private clinic to a sentinel hospital in Miranda state, where he was placed in intensive care.

                          "His evolution was very bad ... he passed away today (Tuesday, June 2) at 11 am," Rodríguez lamented.

                          Despite the fact that 152 cases were publicly announced on Monday, June 1, the mother system for COVID-19 cases registered 153 cases a day ago and therefore the sum of this Tuesday would be 1,819 infected with the disease.

                          He detailed that there are 334 recovered cases. And of the sick 990 men and 819 women. He also highlighted that the majority of cases are suffered by a young population: between 10 and 39 years of age, so he asked for extreme protection measures such as the use of a mask, washing hands regularly and using antibacterial gel.

                          Agreement with the National Assembly

                          He also spoke of the signing of the agreement between the Ministry of Health of the Maduro administration and the health advisory commission of the National Assembly (AN) to address the health emergency for the new coronavirus in the country.

                          He described it as positive, but he referred to Dr. Julio Castro as a representative of "a sector of the so-called G4" of the Venezuelan opposition.

                          He said that almost everything contemplated in the agreement is being done in Venezuela, but added that together they would seek to obtain resources and financing for prevention and avoid the spread of COVID-19.

                          However, when giving the figures of a deceased and the 156 cases of the last 24 hours, he reproached that this agreement had been agreed to be maintained without publicizing it.

                          "The only thing we can object to about this deal is that it was a little late. Both parties propose to work in coordination with PAHO's support in the search for financial resources to strengthen the response to the health emergency caused by the pandemic, ”he stressed.

                              Text by Ronny Rodríguez Rosas |

                              The coronavirus in Venezuela continues its expansion and exceeds 2,000 cases. This Thursday, June 4, 135 infected registered in the last 24 hours were reported, to total 2,087 infections since COVID-19 arrived in the country on March 13.

                              According to the balance offered by President Nicolás Maduro, these correspond to 31 of community transmission and 104 "imported", who are Venezuelan migrants who return through the border states.

                              Despite the fact that Maduro said that the 31 local cases are the "highest number in 12 weeks", a day earlier his executive vice president, Delcy Rodríguez, reported 47 cases of community transmission.

                              In the breakdown of this Thursday, infections were reported in Miranda (18), Caracas (8), Falcón (2), Zulia (2) and Trujillo (1).
                              Focus on Mines of Baruta

                              Most of those affected in Miranda are from the Minas de Baruta community. Of these, they detected three cases in house-to-house sessions: 40-year-old men, 44-year-old man and a 12-year-old boy.

                              In addition, there are six other cases in this sector. They are people who had contact with sick patients:

                              Eight cases in Caracas

                              In the Capital District there were eight infected: Three from Caricuao (80-year-old man, 58-year-old man and 48-year-old woman); a 52-year-old man from El Valle; another 54-year-old man in Car; an 18-year-old girl from Macarao; two cases of La Vega (60-year-old man and 44-year-old man).

In Boconó (Trujillo), the infection of a 28-year-old woman was registered.

                              "Coronavirus in Zulia swallows and kills the patient"

                              Maduro assured that the focus of Zulia "is the great danger we have. It is impressive how the cases that return from Colombia grow. For Zulia we have a difficult situation, it has not reached serious but it is threatening for the Paraguachón-Maracaibo corridor, ”he explained.

                              In addition, he insisted that COVID-19 in the western entity is more aggressive than the rest of the coronavirus cases in Venezuela.

                              "We have a focus that has produced four deaths, the focus of the Las Pulgas market, with an aggressive type of coronavirus, swallows and kills the patient in four days."
                              In full flexibility

                              Venezuela exceeds 2,000 cases after two months and 22 days after the arrival of COVID-19 in the national territory.

                              Only this Monday, June 1, when quarantine easing began, the country recorded 153 cases and exceeded the numbers for the whole of March, a month that registered 143 infections. On June 2, there were the highest number of infections reported on the same day, with 156. The sum of both remains only 24 cases from the full record of March and April, when 333 cases were reported.

                              Despite these figures, Maduro insisted that “we have relaxed because we are in control of the pandemic. There has been a brutal increase in international cases and it comes from the exponential increase in the cases of our neighbors. The curve is like a rocket to the moon. "

                              Maduro accused the migrants who entered via a trail from Santa Elena de Uairén (Bolívar), of “contaminating” a Pemón community.

                              "The other important focus that has just emerged is a focus in the Pemón community of the Bolívar state, we have dozens of cases ... People who do not want to carry out the quarantine are getting into Santa Elena de Uairén," he denounced.
