Nurse claims that Chávez walked into the hospital
Dubraska Mora told state-run TV channel VTV that the Head of State neither used a wheelchair nor he has on tubes
In an interview with state-run TV channel VTV, Mora said that the Head of State "is strong" and did not use a wheelchair. "People of Venezuela, comrades, fellow countrymen: Our President walked in, strong, courageous, full of stamina, as usual in him (...) He would not come neither on a trolley nor on tubes; he would not come with any invasive process. Our president is strong to keep on commanding as he only knows to do it. People, be confident! We have a president for long time!"
The last medical report supplied by Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas referred that President Chávez was breathing through a tracheal cannula because of certain respiratory distress.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
