Colombia constitutes the main risk factor of Covid-19 infection for Venezuelans  4/9/2020 Gobierno Bolivariano: "Due to the significant rates of Covid-19 infections from Colombia, Venezuela will strengthen control measures in the so-called trails to prevent the spread of the infectious disease. “We are going to be much more diligent, much more rigid and careful at work in the so-called trails”, said the Vice-president of Communication, Culture and Tourism, Jorge Rodríguez. He indicated that, as a result of the entry of people from Colombia, the New Granada nation appears as “the main risk factor of transmission and infection for Venezuelans”. From the Miraflores Palace, located in Caracas, he pointed out that the increase in the transmission in travelers from Colombia responds to the fact that “this epidemic is not being controlled in any way there, not even making an adequate registry of cases; which means a risk for the strict control that we are doing in Venezuela”."

Speaking on the quality of the Venezuelan approach, the low number of cases detected and the social media negative influencers discrediting Venezuelan figures on the pandemic, Jorge Rodriguez highlighted that Venezuela has practiced 1,227 tests per million people and compared that number with other Latin American countries like Chile with 884, Ecuador with 595, Colombia with 375, Peru with 120 and Brazil with only 86 tests per million."

Venezuela’s Coronavirus Response Might Surprise You  3/26/2020 Venezuela Analysis: "First, international solidarity has played a priceless role in enabling the government to rise to the challenge. China sent coronavirus diagnostic kits that will allow 320,000 Venezuelans to be tested, in addition to a team of experts and tons of supplies. Cuba sent 130 doctors and 10,000 doses of interferon alfa-2b, a drug with an established record of helping COVID-19 patients recover. Russia has sent the first of several shipments of medical equipment and kits. These three countries, routinely characterized by the U.S. foreign policy establishment as evil, offer solidarity and material support. The United States offers more sanctions and the IMF, widely known to be under U.S. control, denied a Venezuelan request for $5 billion in emergency funding that even the European Union supports."
