People of the Ciudad Casarapa in Guarenas, Miranda state, report that they have 14 days without received any water, making it impossible to comply with the social quarantine measures ordered by Nicolas Maduro regime.
With cases mounting and no water to wash their hands, the affected neighbors are expressing desperation. Nearly 80% of the country does not receive any water by pipes.
Maduro has also imposed a social quarantine, forbidding large meetings, stopping classes and ordering all business closed except those related to food and health care.

“How do you wash your hands if you don’t even have enough to cook or brush your teeth? How do you deal with a pandemic or a quarantine without water?” a neighbor asks.
In an ordinary month, neighbors spend 14 days without water service. But this one has been worse, they say.
