President Nicolás Maduro reported this Monday that Venezuela registers 87% of the population vaccinated against Covid-19 throughout the country, and reiterated the goal of 90% vaccination by December 31 of this year.
This was indicated during the presentation of the vaccination balance in Venezuela, on which he highlighted that the states with the highest percentage of vaccination are the Capital District, Táchira, La Guaira, Carabobo, Miranda, Lara, Mérida, Guárico, Cojedes, Trujillo, Aragua, Yaracuy, Nueva Esparta and Falcón.
In this regard, he added that the entities with the lowest levels of vaccination are Amazonas, Barinas, Anzoátegui, Zulia, Apure, Portuguesa, Bolívar, Delta Amacuro, Monagas and Sucre.
In this sense, he instructed the governors and health authorities of the country to increase efforts through vaccination days and house-to-house visits to reach 90% of those vaccinated on December 31 throughout the country.
Omicron: Two new cases.
Regarding the omicron variant, he indicated that this Monday were detected two new cases of people arriving from the United Kingdom and Panama, both asymptomatic.
In this context, he reiterated that Venezuela remains a model that has prevented the spread of the virus.
He quoted as an example: “Spain today reached 1,200 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, while Venezuela stands at 6 cases per 100,000 inhabitants”, he said.
“Six cases per 100,000 inhabitants, thanks to the fact that we collectively protect ourselves, thanks to vaccination and the higher awareness and awareness of most families (…) six cases per 100,000 inhabitants, the same day that Spain reaches 1,200 cases per 100,000. Something is failing in Europe, in Spain, in the US There they are going into the sixth wave, we came out of the second wave and entered a favorable phase that we must take great care of”, he said.
However, he urged the Venezuelan people to get vaccinated, against the spread of the Omicron variant in the world.
