Shortage likely to escalate in Venezuela amid drought of US dollars

"If delays in the delivery of authorizations, certificates, licenses, and foreign currency continue, shortage will exacerbate in the country in the next weeks, just when consumption reaches its highest point in the year," the confederation noted in a press release.

But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
