Covit-19 | The United States has eased sanctions against the Maduro government in Venezuela to fight the world

The United States on Thursday (17) allowed some transactions under sanctions imposed against the government of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela to facilitate the fight against Govt-19 in South America. (Learn more about the epidemic situation among the Venezuelan population at the end of the report).

Without suspending the punitive measures imposed on Caracas, Joe Biden’s government granted licenses to:

  • More expensive
  • Respiratory equipment and oxygen tanks
  • Vaccines
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Other types of hospital supplies to meet the health crisis.

The Treasury Department said the decision was in response to a memorandum issued by Biden shortly after taking office in January, calling for a review of all sanctions that would “unnecessarily prevent” the fight against the epidemic.

“These new approvals will further support the important work of governments, international organizations, NGOs and private sector actors in providing assistance related to Govt-19,” the Treasury said in a statement.

Washington, which does not recognize Maduro’s re-election as a fraud, increased sanctions and diplomatic tensions against Caracas when the Socialist president took office for a second term in January 2019.

The U.S. Treasury said in a statement on Thursday that it would not allow Venezuela’s military, law enforcement agencies or intelligence personnel to export any goods, technology or services.

He said the state-owned oil company PTVSA, or Venezuela’s Economic and Social Development Bank (PANDUS), did not give the green light to transactions involving Pantas Uruguay or other companies that own them.

Treasury restrictions restrict access to the U.S. financial system and prevent all assets within US borders from being involved.

Last week, Venezuela’s vice president, Delcy Rodriguez, said the $ 10 million $ 10 million allocated to Kovacs’ global organization to access anti-Govt vaccines had been “blocked” by the Swiss bank, delaying the purchase process.

The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), which facilitates the purchase of antiviral agents against Govt-19 on the U.S. continent, highlighted on Wednesday that the loan is awaiting cancellation.

With a population of 30 million, Venezuela is experiencing strong waves of epidemics that are a burden to health centers.

In addition to the health emergency, the country is mired in a socio-economic crisis that has deepened since Maduro came to power in 2013, causing more than 5.6 million people to flee, according to the UN.
