Caracas morgue has received 98 dead bodies so far in February
Twelve dead bodies were taken to the morgue on Monday and Tuesday
Consequently, in average the morgue received 19 bodies per day, and most of them (80%) had gunshot wounds, according to unofficial sources with the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency (Cicpc).
In this sense, Police Chief Elisio Guzmán, the director of Miranda State Police Department, claimed that the skyrocketing murder rate in Venezuela is the result of the Venezuelan State's failure to implement public security policies.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
