When reaching a recovery rate of 57.5 percent in cases of Covid-19, Venezuela registers the most encouraging percentage in Latin America thanks to the effectiveness of the sanitary protocols applied in the nation.
The balance was offered by the Vice-president of Communication, Culture and Tourism, Jorge Rodríguez, who explained that out of 193 reported cases, 111 patients are fully recovered.
“They are people who don’t have any symptoms of those presented when they had the infection, but they also undergo a diagnostic test (PCR) that must be negative”, he explained from the Presidential Command Post, installed in the Miraflores Palace, in Caracas.
Rodríguez clarified that if a patient is asymptomatic, but the PCR is positive, it is not considered recovered and is kept in preventive isolation.
Since March 13, Venezuela has added 193 positive cases of Covid-19 and nine deaths. Globally, the number of infections is 1 million 993 thousand 677.
