Nurse claims that Chávez walked into the hospital
Dubraska Mora told state-run TV channel VTV that the Head of State neither used a wheelchair nor he has on tubes
In an interview with state-run TV channel VTV, Mora said that the Head of State "is strong" and did not use a wheelchair. "People of Venezuela, comrades, fellow countrymen: Our President walked in, strong, courageous, full of stamina, as usual in him (...) He would not come neither on a trolley nor on tubes; he would not come with any invasive process. Our president is strong to keep on commanding as he only knows to do it. People, be confident! We have a president for long time!"
The last medical report supplied by Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas referred that President Chávez was breathing through a tracheal cannula because of certain respiratory distress.
More than USD 3.5 million of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) money were lost in their way to the Dominican Republic. Some Venezuelans are among the 5,000 victims of the bank's collapse. And not even the entity responsible for overseeing Venezuela's monetary policy was spared.
