National Assembly President Juan Guaido Beats COVID-19

By Carlos Camacho
CARACAS -- National Assembly President Juan Guaido, the lawmaker that claimed the mantle of interim President of Venezuela in early 2019, has recovered from COVID 19.
Juan Guaido is the number one trending topic in Venezuelan Twitter Tuesday.
“I would like to announce to you that today I have tested negative and I am recovered,” Guaido tweeted Monday night.
Already hit by a budding humanitarian crisis, hyperinflation and the largest exodus in the history of the Western Hemisphere, Venezuela is now experiencing a peak in the number of Coronavirus cases Nicolas Maduro refusing to allow in 12 million doses of vaccines provided by the World Health Organization in a deal brokered by Guaido.
Maduro has reported bringing in some 650,000 doses of Chinese and Russian vaccines, but so far has only injected some 93,000 doses, according to the WHO page, without specifying the number of patients, or the number of doses per patient. And while he boasted Sunday of having received an unspecified vaccine, he admitted that the regime expects cases to increase in the next few weeks.
In March, there were more 21,381 new cases, almost double the 12,189 cases recorded in February, and the trend seems to be continuing, with some 7,061 new cases reported so far in April.
With 1,000-plus cases every day, April is well on track to unseat September 2020’s 28,394 new cases as the worst month for COVID-19 in Venezuela in more than a year of pandemic. In total, Venezuela has reported 167,548 cases with 1,678 deaths.
Maduro has said he will not allow any vaccines from WHO affiliate COVAX, arguing that the AstraZeneca/ Oxford vaccine – the most used worldwide, with 20 million patients in England alone – is unsafe, but also criticizing how Guaido secured the vaccines, saying he had done so through “begging” and “panhandling”.
Guaido gave no details about the treatment he followed to overcome the virus in slightly more than a week, allowing only that he quarantined himself and reduced his physical activity. On Mar. 28 he reported testing positive and that he had been already quarantined for four days.
That day he tweeted that "I must say that my symptoms are mild, I am already in isolation and following medical indications to be able to recover and fulfill my duty. After knowing the results, I have informed all the people with whom I was in contact."
