It should be noted that the Venezuelan health authorities are applying all the epidemiological protocols recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to compatriots who are returning to the country.

Therefore, when the person enters the territory, a rapid screening test is done. In the case of Táchira, the compatriots remain 14 days in a health center and before continuing the trip to their destination state, they undergo another test. Upon arrival at their destination, a new screening should be performed.

So far, Venezuela has a death toll of 10, as well as 158 recovered cases from the outbreak.
