Eight photos that portray the Venezuelan crisis during the quarantine
The failures in the water, gas domestic, public transportation, and health services, as well as the impact of hyperinflation that hits the most vulnerable population, "blossomed" in Venezuela during the pandemic. Photographers from El Pitazo have recorded these longs and painful months.
After seven months, when authorities confirmed the first COVID-19 contagious case in Venezuela, the impact of the crisis in the most vulnerable population left a painful balance.
It is enough to go through the popular sectors and neighborhoods of the different regions of the country to warn the long lines of people who must ignore the quarantine measures decreed by Nicolás Maduro’s regime to try to get unaccessible foods or some public services that should be guaranteed: public transportation, water, domestic gas, gasoline, health-care attention.
In those long lines, you can see how women, children, and the elderly are the majority. They should be at home, away from the contagious, but they were registered by the photographers from El Pitazo like the most affected by these failures.
