Venezuela’s Maduro Replaces Top Health Official After Data Released

6 posts in this topic

Gotta love a democratic socialist paradise!

 

Venezuela President Nicolás Maduro replaced his top health official just days after her ministry reported a severe worsening in public health in a rare release of government statistics.

After withholding data since 2015, the Health Ministry in Venezuela this week published an epidemiological bulletin showing a 30% increase in infant mortality and a 66% rise in maternal mortality last year, while malaria cases rose by 76%.

The report was the latest blow for Mr. Maduro, whose government has foregone publishing basic health and economic statistics during a troubled four-year tenure marked by food and medicine scarcity. 

 

Since April, thousands of Venezuelans have poured into the streets almost daily to protest Mr. Maduro’s economic oversight and call for his ouster. He has also drawn criticism from within his own party.

The Maduro administration said Luis Lopez, a 43-year-old pharmacist and activist for the ruling Socialist party, will take over as health minister for Antonieta Caporale, a gynecologist who had been appointed to the post in early January.

In announcing Mr. Lopez’s appointment, Vice President Tareck El Aissami didn’t give a reason for the move. “President Maduro appreciates Dr. Antonieta Caporale’s work and commitment for the ministry,” Mr. El Aissami said in a Twitter post.

Mr. Lopez previously served as a health secretary for the state of Aragua under Mr. El Aissami, who used to be governor of that state.

I know what you mean.  The same could be said of the DPRK, keep the population weak and hungry and protect the leadership!

It would be funny if it wasn't so sad. I remember when that socialist Michael Moore was texting how great thing we're in the socialist utopia in Venezuela. 

 

Thank god hillary didn't win. Open borders would allow us to be equal with Venezuela in record time.

Although I agree with you regarding the failings (always) of Socialism, or as it is now called "Democratic Socialism", I personally don't think the US would fall so far.  The one big difference is that the Constitution here is so difficult to change, and we still have guns.  I know, there are a lot of gun laws out there, but so far SCOTUS has held up the 2nd Amendment for the most part.  It appears there will be another case coming soon, so we will see how that goes.
