  • Venezuela under pressure as pandemic grows in country

    Caracas, Mar 26 (EFE).- (Camera: Iván Cárdenas) "I do not know anyone infected with Covid-19".

But the trend was reversed, and now, while others are recovering and vaccinating at different rates, the South American nation is suffering and the collapse of the health system is visible.FOOTAGE OF CARACAS.

  • Venezuela: Poor, rich country

    Caracas, Sep 25 (EFE), (Camera: Andry Rincón).- Venezuela was infinite. It seemed that nothing could go wrong when, in the 80s, the world still looked at the Caribbean country with admiration. Oil, minerals, cocoa, gas, tourism, fishing. Inexhaustible resources that placed Bolívar's homeland in the first position in the ranking of the richest countries in Latin America. Today, it is the third to last.FOOTAGE OF OIL EXTRACTION, PORTS, BUILDINGS AND STREETS OF CARACAS. SOUNDBITES OF:-BLANCA MENDOZA, RETIRED:"The city was beautiful and quiet. There were no problems. There was like a village, a quiet city. Today it is horrible like the rest of the world. The situation is very difficult mainly for us, the elderly. I worked for the judicial system for 30 yers and my pension doesn't reach 1,000 bolivars permonth."-ENRIQUE RUBIO, RETIRED:"Back in those days we didn't have any luxuries, but we had everything. There was gas, all public services worked. If one took to the streets to protest, he would't go to jail as it happens today. Now protests have been criminalised.""The other parties managed the country more or less fine. We used to live more or less fine. But then Chavez came to power and, influenced by Cuba and Fidel Castro, everybody is aware of it, he made up that socialism is the same as communism. But we all know that if communism comes to power in the desert, after one year there will be no sand in the desert."

  • Former Venezuela's Oil and Energy Minister: Maduro is driving the country to ruin

    Caracas (Venezuela), Aug 28 (EFE).- Former Venezuela's Oil and Energy Minister Rafael Ramírez criticised President Nicolás Maduro and PDVSA management model after Harvest filled and later dropped a millionaire lawsuit against him whic was finally withdrawn for lack of evidence on Wednesday.SOUNDBITES OF FORMER VENEZUELA'S OIL AND ENERGY MINISTER RAFAEL RAMÍREZ DURING AN INTERVIEW WITH EFE:"PDVSA's problem is not technical but political. Maduro is the one who makes decisions. The president of the Republic puts the members of the board of directors and it's like that since it (PDVSA) was formed. With Maduro, there is no way, no way. He will order one intervention after another...nine committees were celebrated so far and all of them have failed. The situation is really bad. These people do not only lack the ability to manage the oil industry but any interest of it. Why? Because they are undermining PDVSA and privatizing it breaking the law and the constitution. They are handing a state industry over to the economical group that supports them in power, which is detrimental to the interests of the state. This government won't solve PDVSA's problems with this government, neither will privatization."

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
