The team of Venezuela’s self-proclaimed “responsible president” Juan Guaidó in the United States has announced an agreement with the American NGO Medical Bridges to send 90 tons of medical care to the Caribbean nation to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.
Guaidó’s “embassy” in Washington, led by Carlos Vecchio, said in a statement that it “is a collaborative effort with Houston nonprofit medical bridges and with the support of the private sector.”
Fernando Blasi, who acts as a commercial attaché for Guaidó, has stated that there are about 40 containers with “90 tons of medical supplies and medication needed to help health care providers in the country provide high-quality services to underserved populations” . .
The Vecchio diplomatic mission specified that “the containers would be gradually shipped to Venezuela in the next few months” and stressed that “the provisional government will take all steps to ensure that this useful cargo reaches its final destination”.
