Capriles: situation of hospitals is not a result of capitalism
The opposition leader instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care
During his speech, the opposition leader referred to the cost of drugs and the dramatic conditions public health care institutions are facing. In this regard, the governor instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care.
Capriles seized the opportunity to reject the remarks by Health Minister Isabel Iturria, who after 15 years of revolution in Venezuela, still blames the situation of hospitals to capitalism instead of the current Government.
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.
