The current political crisis in Venezuela has affected many sectors of the country, including health, where once, the government of the deceased Hugo Chávez, and the current President Nicolás, boasted of offering free health and for everyone today is the opposite, however this is something more than the government likes to hide in their media, whereas always ignores the issue and premise that everything is fine.
According to figures from different pollsters, unlike in 2012, out of every 100 patients 3 died, now the figures have risen 10 times, that is to say that out of every 100 patients 30 tend to die, although this may seem surprising for the Venezuelan. it is, because it is aware of the shortage of supplies and medicines, where even a simple antibiotic is a nightmare to look for it.
The figures speak for themselves, according to some NGOs such as doctors for health or the Venezuelan health observatory, all hospitals and medical centers lack more than 80 percent of the supplies they require, among them medicines, surgical equipment, first aid and they do not have the X-ray equipment and CT scans they once had.
On the other hand, there is the situation of health professionals, because with a salary equivalent to $ 5 a month combined with a precarious security situation where hospitals are theaters of robberies and shootings when they receive sick or injured criminals does not leave them more alternative than leaving the country for its own integrity.
Thanks to this, becoming ill or suffering from a chronic ailment in Venezuela has turned into a tragedy, where it seems that we went back 100 years as diseases that in other countries are easily controllable here are unfortunately mortal.
