Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said that Caracas is awaiting the necessary permits to send two COVID-19 testing machines to Colombia, since the only one Colombia had has failed.
Maduro also made a regional call to help the people of Ecuador in the face of increasing cases and deaths from the pandemic, reiterating his willingness to leave behind the political differences during the current world health crisis.
“The images of Ecuador are horrifying, without a government, without support, corpses decomposing in homes. We cannot turn a blind eye to what is happening in Ecuador,” he said in his statement.
The Venezuelan resident also reiterated that he is willing and has the necessary aircraft to repatriate the nationals who are in the United States, but that the authorities of that country have not authorized the action. Likewise, he expressed his solidarity with U.S. people as that country has now became the current epicenter of the pandemic.
