Between 86 to 96 percent of personalized services were reopened during the week of the “flexibilization” of the social quarantine in Venezuela, called “reopening” in other countries, under the 5 + 10 scheme that now becomes 7 + 7, reported the president of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro Moros.
The textile and footwear sector was activated between 66 to 76 percent, while the chemical industry had a boost of 75 percent, and in the auto parts sector, between 26 and 37 percent.
For its part, the dental medical consultation sector reported a reopening rate of 93 percent, while hairdressers were at 94 percent.
Likewise, hardware stores were activated by 64 percent and the construction sector by 25 percent.
By offering a general accounting of the economic sectors during “flexibilization,” the head of state and government confirmed that this Monday, June 8, the period of voluntary, disciplined and radical social quarantine begins for a period of 7 days.
“It is Week 13 of this battle,” he said, “and we are going to rehearse 7 + 7, we have already completed 7 days of good flexibility and now we are going to 7 days of quarantine necessary to cut the Coronavirus transmission chains. It is the Venezuelan method for us to fight this difficult battle for humanity, not to have flare-ups like the United States has right now, not to have super-flare-ups like Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile.”
The president insisted on the need not to be negligent and to take this disease very seriously, given that it is an invisible and lethal enemy.
