The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, reported that in the coming days a new plan will be announced to make more flexible the voluntary quarantine in force since March 15, almost 10 weeks ago.
This was stated during a videoconference that he held this Thursday, May 21, with the country’s Military General Staff and the region’s commanders.
According to the national president, said schedule will not include the border states, where sanitary discipline should be sustained, given the upturn in imported infections after the massive entry of Venezuelans along the border with Colombia and Brazil escaping from the Covid-19 catastrophe in Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and Colombia.
In this regard, he stressed that Venezuela is the only country in the world “that is receiving a reverse migration of thousands of compatriots” fleeing from xenophobia and the coronavirus.
Last week vice president Delcy Rodriguez announced the submission of a reopening plan for the consideration of President Maduro and she talked about a system like a traffic light to open or tighten social distancing based in the figures reported in each state.
