The Venezuelan leader, Darío Vivas, reported this Sunday that he found the new corona virus through a message on Twitter saying that he had undergone a PCR test that tested positive.
“I am addressing the heroic people in Caracas who are responsible for the governance of the government of the capital city district. I report that I tested positive for the PCR from COVID-19,” said Vivas.
The “Chavista” leader has said that he is isolated and adhering to treatment, and has asked citizens to stick to the measures to prevent the virus from spreading further. “In the hands of our blessed doctor José Gregorio Hernández,” he riveted.
The capital district is one of the areas with the highest number of daily infections, and there have been more than 1,300 cases since the epidemic began. Other “Chavista” leaders tested positive: the president of the National Constituent Assembly, Diosdado Cabello; the Governor of the State of Zulia, Omar Prieto, and the Economic Vice President and Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Tareck El Aissami.
Venezuela has a total of 11,483 infections and 110 deaths after adding 292 new positives and three more deaths in the last bulletin. This comes from data released by Vice President and Government Spokesman Jorge Rodríguez.
