status of the country is alarming thanks to the flight of doctors and nurses who fled the country seeking a better future in other lands. On March 5, a plane from Europe brought
two infected people with COVID-19, becoming official on March 13th through a statement by the country's vice president, Delcy Rodriguez, in the capital of my country, Caracas, causing many people to panicked, the alarming news caused many people to leave their homes to buy what they could to protect themselves against a possible quarantine, just 48 hours later there were already 17 confirmed cases and 7 states in the country in total quarantine, the situation is alarming, there is a lot of fear in a country where a simple fever or a small infection is a cause for concern thanks to the lack of medicines and medical personnel, adding to this the high food prices as we suffer from an unofficial dollarization where businesses try to fight inflation selling products in dollars, when the common citizen
