After finishing one more week of radical quarantine framed within the Venezuelan 7 + 7 Plus scheme, the Venezuelan head of state, Nicolás Maduro, assured this Sunday that after the weekly evaluation of the Ministry of People’s Power for Health, it registers a rate of 21 active cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 inhabitants.

During one of the customary Covid-19 Prevention and Control Balance journey on Sundays, the First National Mandatary specified that there are 6,851 active cases in Venezuela to date and in the last seven days an average of 6,863 cases has been maintained. Likewise, during the week an average of 456 new cases and 455 recovered per day were registered.

In this sense, the Dignitary pointed out that, despite the fact that since the second week of December a sustained growth in cases has been maintained, in this first week of February there is a slight decrease in cases.

Although, he insisted that despite the slight decrease, the Venezuelan authorities are calling on the population to reinforce biosecurity measures and increase house-by-house searches to identify asymptomatic people.

Against this background, the Head of State urged the population to take care of themselves and stressed that without a doubt, Venezuela has had a successful track record in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic, he stressed.

To conclude, he reiterated that Venezuela’s success in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic is the result of the efforts of the Venezuelan scientific community, the People’s Power, and the support of the medical brigades of Cuba and allied countries.
