Caracas morgue has received 98 dead bodies so far in February
Twelve dead bodies were taken to the morgue on Monday and Tuesday
Consequently, in average the morgue received 19 bodies per day, and most of them (80%) had gunshot wounds, according to unofficial sources with the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency (Cicpc).
In this sense, Police Chief Elisio Guzmán, the director of Miranda State Police Department, claimed that the skyrocketing murder rate in Venezuela is the result of the Venezuelan State's failure to implement public security policies.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
