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.
According to inner surveys performed by the Venezuelan Association of Metallurgical and Mining Industries (AIMM), where 160 metallurgic companies were taken into consideration, 90% of the companies members of this association are "distressed because of their existence or survival in the short term," stated Manuel Eseverri, president of this association.
