August 14, 2020

Caracas’ capital city Prime Minister Darío Vivas died this Thursday as a victim of the disease caused by COVID-19, a month after announcing that he had tested positive, local media pointed out.

It was the Attorney General of Venezuela, Tarek William Saab, who first reiterated the news of the death of Vivas, who was also a member of the National Assembly between 2010 and 2017.

“It is with great regret that we receive the unfortunate news of the death of our good friend Darío Vivas: a full-fledged revolutionary with whom we have shared courageous struggles in the streets of Caracas since the 1980s in defense of the people and the homeland,” he said in his Twitter account.
