This was reported Friday by Venezuelan vice president, Delcy Rodríguez, who also explained that this figure keeps the country at the forefront of the strategy of mass screening in Latin America.


Let’s remember that with the support of nations such as Russia and China, who have a permanent airlift for the arrival of humanitarian aid, as well as from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Unicef, Venezuela has managed to contain the coronavirus contagion curve and deepen the broad house-to-house visits investigating potential cases.
