In the last 24 hours, Venezuela registered 51 new Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, bringing the total to 1,510 cases, as detailed by Vice President, Delcy Rodríguez in her daily report from Miraflores Palace.
Rodríguez highlighted that 21 of these cases are by community transmission and 30 are due to imported cases and international contact registered specifically at the border with Brazil and Colombia.
“We arrived at these cases through the methodology of mass and personalized screening,” adding, also thanks to rapid tests and the hard work of health personnel and security agencies in the border states.
Likewise, she reported that to date, 975,825 tests have been carried out for COVID-19, representing 32,528 tests per million inhabitants, placing Venezuela third in the American continent just behind Canada and the US, for conducting the largest number tests per million inhabitants.
