Venezuelan VP: "We are very happy with Chávez's recovery"
The work carried out by the team of treating doctors in Havana "has allowed overcoming hard, complicated moments and consolidating a recovery that fills us with happiness"
Venezuela's Vicepresident Nicolás Maduro reiterated on Sunday that thanks to a "world-class" medical team, the health condition of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez "is consolidation day after day."
Maduro emphasized that as Christmas is a few hours away, the president's followers pray for him in his "battle for life."
"We are very happy to learn that the commander receives the prayers and that such prayers are consolidating the work of a world-class medical team, as it were, from the scientific, academic, practical and clinical viewpoints," the Vice-President affirmed.
"Here there is the convergence of knowledge that precisely has allowed overcoming hard, complex moments and consolidating a recovery that fills us with happiness."
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
