The Citizen Observatory COVID-19 raised this Friday to 431 the suspected cases of said disease in Nicaragua, when the Daniel Ortega regime only recognizes 14 since the pandemic officially entered the country in mid-March.
According to the Citizen Observatory, which independently locates cases of COVID-19 not recognized by the authorities, the number of people infected with the SARS-coV-2 coronavirus increased by 38% since last Saturday, with respect to the previous seven days, as a result of a report of 118 new cases.
The total COVID-19 cases reported by the observatory include 401 located by their own sources, 16 suspects recognized by the Ministry of Health (Minsa), and 14 confirmed.
The report includes some 30 members of the health staff in Nicaragua, including doctors and other workers, who have also been reached by symptoms associated with COVID-19, according to the Observatory.
The Citizen Observatory, which it does not report confirmed cases because only the regime has access to the COVID-19 tests, He stressed that official data indicates that the pandemic has a rate of 29% in Nicaragua, which would rank it as the highest in America.
The Observatory also reported a total of 86 deaths of people who presented symptoms of COVID-19, a distant number of the four recognized by the Government of President Daniel Ortega.
Of the 86 deaths, the regime recognizes four as victims of the pandemic, 53 died from pneumonia or other diseases related to COVID-19, and another 29 from heart attacks or unknown causes, which the Observatory related to the new coronavirus.
In addition, the Observatory reported a total of 147 irregularities of the authorities and official groups related to the pandemic, such as exposure of people in agglomeration activities, threats, coercion, harassment, retaliation and inadequate responses from the Ministry of Health.
The regime of Daniel Ortega, who has not established restrictions or social prevention measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, accepted last Tuesday, for the first time, the use of masks and social distancing in Nicaragua.
Ortega, whose regime promotes agglomeration activities – in fact, he has organized boxing matches – he has insisted that the priority is the economy, on the subject of public health, based on which the country cannot be stopped.
The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Organization of American States (OAS) have expressed their concern about the way in which the Nicaraguan authorities handle the pandemic.
The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) have classified the issue as a violation of the right to health.
