Venezuela enters group of countries benefited by the WHO to face the pandemic

The World Health Organization (WHO) approved on Wednesday a total of 2,000 million dollars to support and finance those governments that require it, to face the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, which already totals 468,301 people infected and more than 21,000 deceased worldwide.

In this sense, the Executive Vice President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Delcy Rodríguez, indicated that the South American nation is within this group that will be served by WHO resources:

“Venezuela is within the group of countries that will benefit from resources to be provided by the WHO”, announced the Executive Vice President from the Presidential Command Post at Miraflores Palace in Caracas.

Rodríguez appreciated the collaboration provided by the WHO and the United Nations System (UN), with which he held an earlier meeting to review the preventive measures promoted by Venezuela to stop the spread of Covid-19.

“The United Nations System has confirmed that the measures that President Nicolás Maduro is taking to confront Covid-19 are adequate and correct measures”, she stressed.

On the other hand, he indicated that, since the measures began to be applied – after the detection of the first two cases of Covid-19 in Venezuela on March 13 – the South American nation has managed to “flatten the curve” and thus contain the transmission of contagion.
